Poisson point process.


(Poisson point process) Let MATH be a filtered probability space, MATH be a measurable space and MATH , MATH . A $U_{\delta}$ -valued process MATH is called "Poisson point process" if it has the following properties.

1. The map MATH is MATH - measurable.

2. The set MATH is countable a.s.

3. There is a sequence of sets MATH s.t. MATH and MATH where MATH

4. The process $e_{t}$ is $\QTR{cal}{F}_{t}$ -adapted.

5. For any $h>0$ , $t>0$ and any $A\in\QTR{cal}{U}$ the distribution of MATH conditioned on $\QTR{cal}{F}_{t}$ is the same as the distribution of $N_{h}^{A}$ .


(Independence of Poisson processes) Two Poisson processes adapted to the same filtration are independent iff they almost never jump simultaneously.


(Properties of Poisson point process) Let MATH be a Poisson point process.

1. $N_{t}^{A}$ is a Poisson process for any $A\in\QTR{cal}{U}$ .

2. For MATH s.t. MATH the processes $N_{t}^{A_{1}}$ and $N_{t}^{A_{2}}$ are independent.

3. The quantity MATH is independent of $t$ and constitutes a $\sigma$ -finite measure on $\QTR{cal}{U}$ .


(Characteristic measure of Poisson point process) The measure MATH defined in the proposition ( Properties of Poisson point process ) is called "characteristic measure of Poisson point process".

An example of calculation with Poisson point process may be found within the proof of the proposition ( Construction of generic Levy process ).
