with random source f. The latter is, in certain sense, a symmetric α-stable spatial white noise multiplied by some regular function σ. We define a candidate solution U to the equation via Poisson’s formula and prove that the corresponding expression is well defined at each point almost surely, although the exceptional set may depend on the particular point $(x,t)$. We further show that U is Hölder continuous in time but with probability 1 is unbounded in any neighborhood of each point where σ does not vanish. Finally, we prove that U is a generalized solution to the equation.
We consider a Cauchy problem for stochastic heat equation driven by a real harmonizable fractional stable process Z with Hurst parameter $H>1/2$ and stability index $\alpha >1$. It is shown that the approximations for its solution, which are defined by truncating the LePage series for Z, converge to the solution.
We show that if a random variable is the final value of an adapted log-Hölder continuous process, then it can be represented as a stochastic integral with respect to a fractional Brownian motion with adapted integrand. In order to establish this representation result, we extend the definition of the fractional integral.
We investigate the convergence of hitting times for jump-diffusion processes. Specifically, we study a sequence of stochastic differential equations with jumps. Under reasonable assumptions, we establish the convergence of solutions to the equations and of the moments when the solutions hit certain sets.
