  journal={Annals of Probability},
In this paper we develop the spectral theory of the fractional Brownian motion (fBm) using the ideas of Krein's work on continuous analogous of orthogonal polynomials on the unit circle. We exhibit the functions which are orthogonal with respect to the spectral measure of the fBm and obtain an explicit reproducing kernel in the frequency domain. We use these results to derive an extension of the classical Paley-Wiener expansion of the ordinary Brownian motion to the fractional case. 

Sample Path Properties of Gaussian Invariant Random Fields

Let X(t) be a centred Gaussian invariant random field on a two-point homogeneous space T. The corresponding Dudley semi-metric is a function of one real variable. We use Abelian and Tauberian

An infinite series representation of fBM is proposed in (Dzhaparidze and Van Zanten 2004) and an almost sure convergence rate of the series representation is established, which is shown to be optimal.

Wiener Chaos Approach to Optimal Prediction

This work combines the Wiener chaos expansion approach to study the dynamics of a stochastic system with the classical problem of the prediction of a Gaussian process based on a realization of its past to derive the chaos expansion of a random variable conditioned on part of the sample path.

An elementary approach to a Girsanov formula and other analytical results on fractional Brownian motions

The Radon-Nikodym derivative between a centred fractional Brownian motion Z and the same process with constant drift is derived by finding an integral transformation which changes Z to a process with

Stochastic Analysis of the Fractional Brownian Motion

Since the fractional Brownian motion is not a semiimartingale, the usual Ito calculus cannot be used to deene a full stochastic calculus. However, in this work, we obtain the Itt formula, the
