For each w , suppose there is a continuous function W ( t ) of t 0 that satisfies W (0) = 0 and that depends on w . Then W ( t ) , t , is a Brownian motion if for all 0 = t < t 1 < < t m the increments W ( t 1 ) = W ( t 1 ) W ( t ) , W ( t 2 ) W ( t 1 ) , , W ( t m ) W ( t m 1 ) (3 . 3 . 1) are independent and each of these inrements is normally distributed with E ( W ( t i +1 ) W ( t i )) = 0 (3 . 3 . 2) V ar ( W ( t i +1 ) W ( t i )) = t i +1 t i (3 . 3 . 3) 1 Theorem 3.3.2. Let ( , F , P ) be a probabil ity space. For each w , suppose there is a continuous function W ( t ) of t 0 that sat isfies W (0) = 0 and that depends on w . The following three properties are equivalent; (i) For all 0 = t < t 1 < < t m , the incre ments W ( t 1 ) = W ( t 1 ) W ( t ) , W ( t 2 ) W ( t 1 ) , , W ( t m ) W ( t m 1 ) are independent and each of these increments is normally distributed with mean abd variance given by (3.3.2) and (3.3.3) (ii) For all 0 = t < t 1 < < t...
