By T. Hida (auth.)

Following the book of the japanese variation of this ebook, numerous inter­ esting advancements happened within the sector. the writer desired to describe a few of these, in addition to to supply feedback referring to destiny difficulties which he was hoping may stimulate readers operating during this box. For those purposes, bankruptcy eight was once extra. except the extra bankruptcy and some minor alterations made by way of the writer, this translation heavily follows the textual content of the unique eastern variation. we want to thank Professor J. L. Doob for his useful reviews at the English variation. T. Hida T. P. pace v Preface The actual phenomenon defined by means of Robert Brown used to be the advanced and erratic movement of grains of pollen suspended in a liquid. within the decades that have handed considering this description, Brownian movement has turn into an item of analysis in natural in addition to utilized arithmetic. Even now a lot of its very important homes are being came across, and probably new and important elements stay to be chanced on. we're getting a an increasing number of intimate knowing of Brownian motion.

K and mJ. k do not approach 0 simultaneously, so that for sufficiently small 8 > 0 we have limsupP(IXj-Xkl ~k--+oo >8)2~. 2 But this means that {Xn} does not converge in probability, a contradiction. 6 Gaussian Systems the Hilbert space L2(Q, B, P) and the limit X 00 can thus be found in I3(Q, B, Pl. The inner product E(Xn) = mn of Xn and 1, and the squared norm V(X n) = a; of X n - mn both converge to limits, say m and a 2 respectively. Thus the characteristic function of Xn converges to that of N(m, ( 2 ) and this limit function has to be the characteristic function of X 00 • This 0 proves the second half of the proposition.

E A). Let A be a finite set, say A = {1, 2, ... , n}. If the Gaussian random variables Xj' 1 ~j ~ n, are independent, then the system X = {Xj: 1 ~j ~ n} is obviously Gaussian. In particular, if mj = 0, 1 ~ j ~ n, and lj, k = (j jk' 1 ~ j, k ~ n, then the distribution is N(O, E) where E is the identity matrix, and is called the n-dimensional standard Gaussian distribution. A Gaussian system X = {X,,: A E A} has many notable properties, and we will state some of the more important properties needed in later chapters, although the proofs are only given in outline.

If In Xn converges in law, then it converges in probability. b. If In Xn converges in probability, then it converges almost surely. PROOF OF (a). Let CiJn(z) be the characteristic function of Xn and set n. 45) and the fact that n we have cI>n(z)n. 45). 46) for z away from 0 we use the inequality IcI>n. m(z) - 11 ~ N{21 cI>n. m(N- 1 z) - 1 W/ 2 valid for large N. Suppose now that In Xn was not convergent in probability.
