A factorization of a L\'evy process over a phase-type horizon

13 Aug 2018  ·  Asmussen Søren, Ivanovs Jevgenijs ·

This note provides a factorization of a L\'evy pocess over a phase-type horizon $\tau$ given the phase at the supremum, thereby extending the Wiener-Hopf factorization for $\tau$ exponential. One of the factors is defined using time reversal of the phase process... It is shown that there are a variety of time-reversed representations, all yielding the same factor. Consequences of this are discussed and examples provided. Additionally, some explicit formulas for the joint law of the supremum and the terminal value of the process at $\tau$ are given. read more
