Necessary and Sufficient Conditions for a Class Positive Local Martingale


Let X be a Markov process, which is assumed to be associated with a (non-symmetric) Dirichlet form (E,D(E)) on L2 (E;m). For , the extended Dirichlet space, we give necessary and sufficient conditions for a multiplicative functional to be a positive local martingale.
