This article contains both a point process and a sequential description of the greatest convex minorant of Brownian motion on a finite interval. We use these descriptions to provide new analysis of various features of the convex minorant such as the set of times where the Brownian motion meets its minorant. The equivalence of these descriptions is non-trivial, which leads to many interesting identities between quantities derived from our analysis. The sequential description can be viewed as a… 
Convex minorants of random walks and Lévy processes
This article provides an overview of recent work on descriptions and properties of the Convex minorants of random walks and Levy processes, which summarize and extend the literature on these
The convex minorant of a Lévy process
We offer a unified approach to the theory of convex minorants of Levy processes with continuous distributions. New results include simple explicit constructions of the convex minorant of a Levy
Markovian structure in the concave majorant of Brownian motion
. The purpose of this paper is to highlight some hidden Markovian structure of the concave majorant of the Brownian motion. Several distributional identities are implied by the joint law of a
WHEN IS THE CONVEX HULL OF A LÉVY PATH SMOOTH?
We characterise, in terms of their transition laws, the class of one-dimensional Lévy processes whose graph has a continuously differentiable (planar) convex hull. We show that this phenomenon is
The Vervaat transform of Brownian bridges and Brownian motion
For a continuous function f 2 C([0;1]), define the Vervaat transform V (f)(t) := f( (f) +t mod 1) +f(1)1ft+ (f) 1g f( (f)), where (f) corresponds to the first time at which the minimum of f is

. We characterise, in terms of their transition laws, the class of one-dimensional Lévy processes whose graph has a continuously differentiable (planar) convex hull. We show that this phenomenon is
Topics in Stochastic Geometry Convex Hullls of Random Walks
This course covers a range of results on the convex hull of random walks in the plane and in higher dimension: expected perimeter length in the planar case, expected number of faces on the boundary,
Convex Hulls of Planar Random Walks
For the perimeter length Ln and the area An of the convex hull of the first n steps of a planar random walk, this thesis study n→∞ mean and variance asymptotics and establish distributional limits.
$\varepsilon $-strong simulation of the convex minorants of stable processes and meanders
Using marked Dirichlet processes we characterise the law of the convex minorant of the meander for a certain class of L\'evy processes, which includes subordinated stable and symmetric L\'evy
