# Abstract polynomial processes.

We suggest a novel approach to polynomial processes solely based on a polynomial action operator. With this approach, we can analyse such processes on general state spaces, going far beyond Banach spaces. Moreover, we can be very flexible in the definition of what "polynomial" means. We show that "polynomial process" universally means "affine drift". Simple assumptions on the polynomial action operators lead to stronger characterisations on the polynomial class of processes.
In our framework…

It is well known that the distribution of a classical Levy process in a Euclidean space \(\mathbb {R}^d\) is determined by a triple of a drift vector, a covariance matrix, and a Levy measure, which…
