### A Ciesielski–Taylor type identity for positive self-similar Markov processes

The aim of this note is to give a straightforward proof of a general version of the Ciesielski–Taylor identity for positive self-similar Markov processes of the spectrally negative type which umbrellas all previously known Ciesielski–Taylor identities within the latter class. The approach makes use of three fundamental features. Firstly, a new transformation which maps a subset of the family of Laplace exponents of spectrally negative Lévy processes into itself. Secondly, some classical features...
