On truncated variation, upward truncated variation and downward truncated variation for diffusions
The truncated variation, TVc, is a fairly new concept introduced in Łochowski (2008) . Roughly speaking, given a càdlàg function f, its truncated variation is “the total variation which does not pay attention to small changes of f, below some threshold c>0”. The very basic consequence of such approach is that contrary to the total variation, TVc is always finite. This is appealing to the stochastic analysis where so-far large classes of processes, like semimartingales or diffusions, could not be studied with the total variation. Recently in Łochowski (2011) , another characterization of TVc has been found. Namely TVc is the smallest possible total variation of a function which approximates f uniformly with accuracy c/2. Due to these properties we envisage that TVc might be a useful concept both in the theory and applications of stochastic processes.
