The cumulant process and Esscher's change of measure
AbstractIn this paper two kinds of cumulant processes are studied in a general setting. These processes generalize the cumulant of an infinitely divisible random variable and they appear as the exponential compensator of a semimartingale. In a financial context cumulant processes lead to a generalized Esscher transform. We also provide some new criteria for uniform integrability of exponential martingales.
