Example: backward Kolmogorov generator for Ito process with jump.

e use technique of the previous section to calculate the operator ( Backward Kolmogorov generator ) for the process MATH where the Poisson process $dN_{t}$ has the intensity MATH and $dN_{t}$ is conditionally independent from $dW_{t}$ .

Similarly to the previous section, MATH In order to calculate the above expectation we use the recipe ( Total_probability_rule ). We consider the disjoint events $C_{0}=\{$ the process $N_{t}$ does not jump during MATH , $C_{1}=\{$ the process $N_{t}$ jumps once during MATH and MATH . MATH . MATH According to the chapter ( Poisson process ), MATH By the conditional independence of $dN_{t}$ and $dW_{t}$ , the diffusion terms MATH in MATH are small compared to the jump MATH and do not survive the procedure MATH . Hence, MATH In addition, MATH Consequently, MATH The above results agrees with the section ( Backward_equation_for_jump_diffusion ).
