A result on the first-passage time of an Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process
Consider the first time an Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process starting from zero crosses a constant positive threshold. Assuming that the asymptotic mean is above the threshold, conditions on the asymptotic variance relative to the distance between the threshold and the asymptotic mean are given that ensures the finiteness of the positive Laplace transforms.
