We consider random walks perturbed at zero which behave like (possibly different) random walks with i.i.d. increments on each half lines and restarts at 0 whenever they cross that point. We show that the perturbed random walk, after being rescaled in a proper way, converges to a skew Brownian motion whose parameter is defined by renewal functions o...

We calculate the probability density function of the local score position on complete excursions of a reflected Brownian motion. We use the trajecto-rial decomposition of the standard Brownian bridge to derive two different expressions of the density: the first one is based on a series and an integral while the second one is free off the series.

Movement for many animal species is constrained in space by barriers such as rivers, shorelines, or impassable cliffs. We develop an approach for modeling animal movement constrained in space by considering a class of constrained stochastic processes, reflected stochastic differential equations. Our approach generalizes existing methods for modelin...

We construct a family of SDEs whose solutions select a reflected Brownian flow as well as a stochastic damped transport process (W_t). The latter gives a representation for the solutions to the heat equation for differential 1-forms with the absolute boundary conditions; it evolves pathwise by the Ricci curvature in the interior, by the shape opera...

Probability that the maximum of the reflected Brownian motion over a finite interval [0, t] is achieved by its last zero before t Abstract We calculate the probability pc that the maximum of a reflected Brownian motion U is achieved on a complete excursion, i.e. pc := P U (t) = U * (t) where U (t) (respectively U * (t)) is the maximum of the proces...

We show that the dimension of the exit distribution of planar partially reflected Brownian motion can be arbitrarily close to 2.

This thesis consists of three self-contained parts, each with its own abstract, body, references and page numbering. Part I, "Potential theory, path integrals and the Laplacian of the indicator", finds the transition density of absorbed or reflected Brownian motion in a d-dimensional domain as a Feynman-Kac functional involving the Laplacian of the...

In the setting of finite reflection groups, we prove that the projection of a Brownian motion onto a closed Weyl chamber is another Brownian motion normally reflected on the walls of the chamber. Our proof is probabilistic and the decomposition we obtain may be seen as a multidimensional extension of Tanaka's formula for linear Brownian motion. The...

Reflected Brownian motion has been played an important role in economics, finance, queueing and many other fields. In this paper, we present the explicit spectral representation for the hitting time density of the reflected Brownian motion with two-sided barriers, and give some detailed analysis on the computational issues. Numerical analysis revea...

The objective of this work is to extend kriging, a geostatistical interpolation method, to honor parameter nonnegativity. The new method uses a prior probability distribution based on reflected Brownian motion that enforces this constraint. The work presented in this paper focuses on interpolation problems where the unknown is a function of a singl...
