Brownian motion passing through gates.

ur goal is to calculate the quantity MATH for the standard Brownian motion $W_{t}$ , some intervals MATH and time moments $t_{1},t_{2}$ , $\ 0<t_{1}<t_{2}$ . The $P$ is probability.

We split the interval MATH into a disjoint union of intervals MATH , MATH . We calculate MATH MATH We use the formula ( Bayes formula ). MATH We make MATH small. MATH MATH We use the formula ( Brownian motion ). MATH MATH MATH We make the change $y\rightarrow z$ , $y=z-x$ . MATH
