Up to now, the nonparametric analysis of multidimensional continuous-time Markov processes has focussed strongly on specific model choices, mostly related to symmetry of the semigroup. While this approach allows to study the performance of estimators for the characteristics of the process in the minimax sense, it restricts the applicability of results to a rather constrained set of stochastic processes. In particular, among other drawbacks, it hardly allows incorporating jump structures. As a…

Learning to reflect: A unifying approach for data-driven stochastic control strategies
It is shown that developing efficient strategies for related singular stochastic control problems can essentially be reduced to finding rate-optimal estimators with respect to the sup-norm risk of objects associated to the invariant distribution of ergodic processes which determine the theoretical solution of the control problem.
Estimating the characteristics of stochastic damping Hamiltonian systems from continuous observations
We consider nonparametric invariant density and drift estimation for a class of multidimensional degenerate resp. hypoelliptic diffusion processes, so-called stochastic damping Hamiltonian systems or
Optimal convergence rates for the invariant density estimation of jump-diffusion processes
We aim at estimating the invariant density associated to a stochastic differential equation with jumps in low dimension, which is for d = 1 and d = 2. We consider a class of fully non-linear jump
Stability of overshoots of Markov additive processes
We prove precise stability results for overshoots of Markov additive processes (MAPs) with finite modulating space. Our approach is based on the Markovian nature of overshoots of MAPs whose mixing


Exponential and Uniform Ergodicity of Markov Processes
General characterizations of geometric convergence for Markov chains in discrete time on a general state space have been developed recently in considerable detail. Here we develop a similar theory
Stability of Markovian processes III: Foster–Lyapunov criteria for continuous-time processes
In Part I we developed stability concepts for discrete chains, together with Foster–Lyapunov criteria for them to hold. Part II was devoted to developing related stability concepts for
Ergodicity of the zigzag process
The zigzag process is a Piecewise Deterministic Markov Process which can be used in a MCMC framework to sample from a given target distribution. We prove the convergence of this process to its target
Concentration Inequalities - A Nonasymptotic Theory of Independence
Deep connections with isoperimetric problems are revealed whilst special attention is paid to applications to the supremum of empirical processes.

This second edition reflects the same discipline and style that marked out the original and helped it to become a classic: proofs are rigorous and concise, the range of applications is broad and knowledgeable, and key ideas are accessible to practitioners with limited mathematical background.
Stability of Markovian processes II: continuous-time processes and sampled chains
In this paper we extend the results of Meyn and Tweedie (1992b) from discrete-time parameter to continuous-parameter Markovian processes Φ evolving on a topological space. We consider a number of
On Strong Feller, Recurrence, and Weak Stabilization of Regime-Switching Diffusions
This work develops asymptotic properties of regime-switching diffusions by classifying the underlying processes as recurrence (positive recurrence or null recurrence) or transience, and establishing sufficient conditions for such processes.
