Lévy Processes in Lie Groups (Cambridge Tracts in by Ming Liao

By Ming Liao

The speculation of Lévy procedures in Lie teams isn't in simple terms an extension of the idea of Lévy techniques in Euclidean areas. as a result of the distinctive buildings possessed through non-commutative Lie teams, those procedures show convinced fascinating restricting homes which aren't current for his or her opposite numbers in Euclidean areas. This paintings presents an creation to Lévy methods as a rule Lie teams, the proscribing homes of Lévy tactics in semi-simple Lie teams of non-compact kind and the dynamical habit of such approaches as stochastic flows on yes homogeneous areas.
