An Extension of Sub-Fractional Brownian Motion

S H,K exists. 2) It can be shown by the following theorem which gives
also a decomposition in law of the process. It will be useful in the sequel.
Theorem 1.2. 1) For any H ∈ (0, 1) and K ∈ (0, 1], the function S(., .)
is symmetric and positive definite.
2) We have the following decomposition in law
d

StHK = StH,K + C3 (K)XtKH ,

(3)
where C3 (K) =

H ∈ (0, 1), and K ∈ (0, 1), and S H,K and

the Bm W are independent. S HK is sfBm with parameter HK ∈ (0, 1).
Proof: 1) The case K = 1 corresponds to sfBm with parameter H ∈ (0, 1).
First recall the following (easily verified) identity

Since the functions tH + sH − (t + s)H and tH + sH − |t − s|H are positive
definite, so are

H
ex(t +s −(t+s) ) − 1
and
ex(t +s −|t−s| ) − 1 ,
for all x ≥ 0. Therefore the function S(., .) is positive definite.
2) Using the fact that S H,K is a Gaussian process, it suffices to see
that

E[StHK SsHK ] = tHK + sHK − (tH + sH )K + E[StH,K SsH,K ].
In the sequel C and Cp denote constants which will be different even
when they vary from one line to the next.
