Passage of Lévy Processes across Power Law Boundaries at Small Times
We wish to characterize when a Lévy process Xt crosses boundaries like tκ, κ > 0, in a one- or two-sided sense, for small times t; thus, we inquire when lim.supt↓0 |Xt|/tκ, lim supt↓0, Xt/tκ and/or lim inft↓0 Xt/tκ are almost surely (a.s.) finite or infinite. Necessary and sufficient conditions are given for these possibilities for all values of κ > 0. This completes and extends a line of research, going back to Blumenthal and Getoor in the 1960s. Often (for many values of κ), when the lim sups...[Show more]
