Exact Simulation of the First-Passage Time of Diffusions
A new rejection sampling algorithm is introduced which permits to perform an exact simulation of the first-passage time for general one-dimensional diffusion processes and is essentially based on Girsanov's transformation.
Family of closed-form solutions for two-dimensional correlated diffusion processes.
This paper studied two-dimensional, time-homogeneous, spatially correlated diffusion with linear, axis-aligned, absorbing boundaries and found that such solutions can be built if and only if the correlation coefficient ρ between the two diffusing processes takes one of a numerable set of values.
A Symmetry-Based Approach for First-Passage-Times of Gauss-Markov Processes through Daniels-Type Boundaries
The main results of this paper are the alternative proofs to characterize the transition probability density between the two boundaries and the first passage time density exploiting exclusively symmetry properties.

A Brownian motion in presence of an exponentially decaying threshold to model the neuronal spiking activity is considered and theoretical means, variances and coefficients of variation given by the method are compared with empirical quantities from simulated data.
Asymptotics of Two-boundary First-exit-time Densities for Gauss-Markov Processes
The problem of escape times from a region confined by two time-dependent boundaries is considered for a class of Gauss-Markov processes. Asymptotic approximations of the first exit time probability
First passage time and statistical thermodynamics
The first-passage time is proposed as an independent thermodynamic parameter of the statistical distribution that generalizes the Gibbs distribution. The theory does not include the determination of
On the exit time from open sets of some semi-Markov processes
In this paper we characterize the distribution of the first exit time from an arbitrary open set for a class of semi-Markov processes obtained as time-changed Markov processes. We estimate the
Bi-Directional Grid Constrained Stochastic Processes' Link to Multi-Skew Brownian Motion
It is identified that BGCSPs are a variant rather than a special case of the multi-skew Brownian motion (M-SBM), which has their own complexities, such as the barriers being hidden (not known in advance) and not necessarily constant over time.


A new integral equation for the evaluation of first-passage-time probability densities
The first-passage-time p.d.f. through a time-dependent boundary for one-dimensional diffusion processes is proved to satisfy a new Volterra integral equation of the second kind involving two
First-passage densities of a two-dimensional process
The two-dimensional stochastic process$( x( t ),y( t ) )$, where $y( t ) = dx ( t )/dt$ is a Wiener process (Brownian motion) is considered. The value of$x( t )$ when $y( t )$ first hits a line in
First Passage Time Distribution of a Two-Dimensional Wiener Process with Drift
The two-dimensional correlated Wiener process (or Brownian motion) with drift is considered. The Fokker-Planck (or Kolmogorov forward) equation for the Wiener process (X1(t), X2(t)) is solved under
Joint Densities of First Hitting Times of a Diffusion Process Through Two Time-Dependent Boundaries
Consider a one-dimensional diffusion process on the diffusion interval I originated in x 0 ∈ I. Let a(t) and b(t) be two continuous functions of t, t > t 0, with bounded derivatives, a(t) < b(t), and
First-passage problems for degenerate two-dimensional diffusion processes
LetY(t) be a one-dimensional diffusion process anddX(t)=Y(t)dt. The process (X(t), Y(t)) is considered in the second quadrant. First, the probability that (X(t), Y(t)) will hit thex-axis before
On the first passage problem for correlated Brownian motion
One-Dimensional Homogeneous Diffusions
When constructing a model defined by a stochastic differential equation (SDE) the basic problem is whether the equation has a solution and if so, when an initial condition is given, whether the
