A decomposition for Markov processes at an independent exponential time

Mihael Perman


The path of Markov process X run up to an independent exponential random time Sθ can be decomposed into the part prior to the last exit time from a point before Sθ, and the remainder up to Sθ. In this paper the laws of the two segments are identified under suitable assumptions using excursion theory.
