We construct a large family of ergodic non-Markovian processes with infinite memory having the same p-dimensional marginal laws of an arbitrary ergodic Markov chain or projection of Markov chains. Some of their spectral and mixing properties are given. We show that the Chapman-Kolmogorov equation for the ergodic transition matrix is generically satisfied by infinite memory processes.

We study conservative ergodic infinite measure preserving transformations satisfying a compact regeneration property introduced by the second-named author in J. Anal. Math. 103 (2007). Assuming regular variation of the wandering rate, we clarify the asymptotic distributional behaviour of the random vector (Zₙ,Sₙ), where Zₙ and Sₙ are respectively the time of the last visit before time n to, and the occupation time of, a suitable set Y of finite measure.

On a compact metric space X one defines a transition system to be a lower semicontinuous map $X\to {2}^{X}$. It is known that every Markov operator on C(X) induces a transition system on X and that commuting of Markov operators implies commuting of the induced transition systems. We show that even in finite spaces a pair of commuting transition systems may not be induced by commuting Markov operators. The existence of trajectories for a pair of transition systems or Markov operators is also investigated.

In this paper, we are interested in the asymptotical behavior of the error between the solution of a differential equation perturbed by a flow (or by a transformation) and the solution of the associated averaged differential equation. The main part of this redaction is devoted to the ascertainment of results of convergence in distribution analogous to those obtained in [10] and [11]. As in [11], we shall use a representation by a suspension flow over a dynamical system. Here, we make an assumption...

Using the Perron-Frobenius operator we establish a new functional central limit theorem for non-invertible measure preserving maps that are not necessarily ergodic. We apply the result to asymptotically periodic transformations and give a specific example using the tent map.

We obtain conditions for L₂ and strong consistency of the least square estimators of the coefficients in a multi-linear regression model with a stationary random noise. For given non-random regressors, we obtain conditions which ensure L₂-consistency for all wide sense stationary noise sequences with spectral measure in a given class. The condition for the class of all noises with continuous (i.e., atomless) spectral measures yields also ${L}_{p}$-consistency when the noise is strict sense stationary with...

Let Tbe a measurable transformation of a probability space $(E,\mathcal{E},\pi )$ , preserving the measureπ. Let X be a random variable with law π. Call K(⋅, ⋅) a regular version of the conditional law of X given T(X). Fix $B\in \mathcal{E}$ . We first prove that ifB is reachable from π-almost every point for a Markov chain of kernel K, then the T-orbit of π-almost every point X visits B. We then apply this result to the Lévy transform, which transforms the Brownian motion W into the Brownian motion |W| − L, where L is the local time...

In this paper we prove a Central Limit Theorem for standard kernel estimates of the invariant density of one-dimensional dynamical systems. The two main steps of the proof of this theorem are the following: the study of rate of convergence for the variance of the estimator and a variation on the Lindeberg–Rio method. We also give an extension in the case of weakly dependent sequences in a sense introduced by Doukhan and Louhichi.

The Lévy transform of a Brownian motion B is the Brownian motion B(1) given by Bt(1) = ∫0tsgn(Bs)dBs; call B(n) the Brownian motion obtained from B by iterating n times this transformation. We establish that almost surely, the sequence of paths (t → Bt(n))n⩾0 is dense in Wiener space, for the topology of uniform convergence on compact time intervals.

For n ≥ 1 we consider the class JP(n) of dynamical systems each of whose ergodic joinings with a Cartesian product of k weakly mixing automorphisms (k ≥ n) can be represented as the independent extension of a joining of the system with only n coordinate factors. For n ≥ 2 we show that, whenever the maximal spectral type of a weakly mixing automorphism T is singular with respect to the convolution of any n continuous measures, i.e. T has the so-called convolution singularity property of order n,...

We apply dynamical ideas within probability theory, proving an almost-sure invariance principle in log density for stable processes. The familiar scaling property (self-similarity) of the stable process has a stronger expression, that the scaling flow on Skorokhod path space is a Bernoulli flow. We prove that typical paths of a random walk with i.i.d. increments in the domain of attraction of a stable law can be paired with paths of a stable process so that, after applying a non-random regularly...

A number of recent works have sought to generalize the Kolmogorov-Sinai entropy of probability-preserving transformations to the setting of Markov operators acting on the integrable functions on a probability space (X,μ). These works have culminated in a proof by Downarowicz and Frej that various competing definitions all coincide, and that the resulting quantity is uniquely characterized by certain abstract properties. On the other hand, Makarov has shown that this 'operator...
