Using integration by parts on Gaussian space
we construct a Stein Unbiased Risk Estimator (SURE)
for the drift of Gaussian processes, based on their
local and occupation times.
By almost-sure minimization of the SURE risk of
shrinkage estimators we derive an estimation and de-noising
procedure for an input signal perturbed by a
continuous-time Gaussian noise.
