Generator of Levy process.


(Generator of Levy process) Let $X_{t}$ be a Levy process in $\QTR{cal}{R}$ with generator $L$ . The space MATH is included in $D\left( L\right) $ and there are $a\in\QTR{cal}{R}$ , $\sigma\geq0$ and a measure $\mu$ on MATH with MATH such that for any MATH we have MATH


According to the definition ( Levy process ), the increment $X_{t+s}-X_{t}$ is infinitely divisible for any $t\geq 0,~s>0$ . Hence, if MATH is the characteristic exponent of $X_{t+s}-X_{t}$ : MATH then MATH According to the proposition ( Levy-Khintchine formula 2 ) MATH thus MATH Therefore, there are $a\in\QTR{cal}{R}$ , $\sigma\geq0$ and a measure $\mu$ such that for any $s>0$ , MATH We are aiming to calculate MATH in terms of $a,\sigma$ and $\mu$ . The $P_{h}$ is connected to the $\Psi_{h}$ via the relationships MATH MATH By the stationary property of the process, the matrix $\pi$ is only dependent on the distance between $x$ and $y$ : MATH We introduce the notation MATH thus MATH For any MATH let $\hat{f}$ be a function such that MATH Then MATH Therefore MATH MATH We note that MATH and conclude MATH
