Forward and backward generators.


efinition

(Forward and backward generators) Let $X_{t}$ be a Markov process in $\QTR{cal}{R}^{n}$ and $P_{s,t}^{\ast},$ $P_{s,t}$ are the associated propagators. We define the backward and forward "generators" $L_{t}$ and $L_{t}^{\ast}$ as follows:

1. MATH , (Backward Kolmogorov generator) .

2. MATH , (Forward Kolmogorov generator) .

A function $f$ is included in the domain MATH of $L_{t}$ if the limit 1 exists.

A measure $m$ is included in the domain MATH of $L_{t}^{\ast}$ if the limit 2 exists.

Proposition

(Kolmogorov equations in general setting). Let $X_{t}$ be a Markov process in $\QTR{cal}{R}^{n}$ and $\pi$ is the associated transition function. For any MATH , MATH and $0<s<t$ we have
