A characterization of reciprocal processes via an integration by parts formula on the path space


Code(s) de Classification MSC:

Résumé: We characterize in this paper each class of reciprocal processes associated to a Brownian diffusion (therefore not necessarly Gaussian) as the set of Probability measures under which a certain integration by parts formula holds on the path space $\C ([0,1];\R)$. This functional equation can be interpreted as a perturbed duality equation between Malliavin derivative operator and stochastic integration. An application to periodic Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process is presented. We also deduce from our integration by parts formula the existence of Nelson derivatives for general reciprocal processes.
