Multi-dimensional G-Brownian motion and related stochastic calculus under G-expectation
We develop a notion of nonlinear expectation-G-expectation-generated by a nonlinear heat equation with infinitesimal generator G. We first study multi-dimensional G-normal distributions. With this nonlinear distribution we can introduce our G-expectation under which the canonical process is a multi-dimensional G-Brownian motion. We then establish the related stochastic calculus, especially stochastic integrals of Itô's type with respect to our G-Brownian motion, and derive the related Itô's formula. We have also obtained the existence and uniqueness of stochastic differential equations under our G-expectation.
