# Lévy stochastic differential equations

May 23, 2020 — May 23, 2020

Stochastic differential equations driven by Lévy noise are not so tidy as Itô diffusions driven by Brownian noise, so they are frequently brushed aside in stochastic calculus texts. But I need ’em! There is a developed sampling theory for these creatures called sparse stochastic process theory.

Schoutens, Leuven, and Studer (2001) give a tractable example for Poisson processes.

Possibly also chaos expansions might be a useful tool, and/or Malliavin calculus, whatever *that* is.

But I will express no opinions, because this is a placeholder for a topic on which I do not know enough yet. 🏗
