AB - In this paper, we present a new proof of the celebrated theorem of Kellerer, stating that every integrable process, which increases in the convex order, has the same one-dimensional marginals as a martingale. Our proof proceeds by approximations, and calls upon martingales constructed as solutions of stochastic differential equations. It relies on a uniqueness result, due to Pierre, for a Fokker-Planck equation.
