Remarks on suprema of Lévy processes with light tailes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

4 Scopus citations


Let X(t),0≤t≤1 be a Lévy process. A comparison between the right tail of sup0≤t≤1X(t) and the right tail of X(1) is considered. An example is given for which these tailes are incomparable. A class of Lévy process with "light" tails is described for which these tails have the same behavior.
