Abstract

The geometric mean reversion process X([dot operator]) is well known to play a fundamental role in economic dynamic models. While it is known, at least since Merton (1975), that the equilibrium distribution of geometric mean reversion, i.e. the distribution of X([infinity]), is a gamma distribution, an explicit expression for the non-equilibrium distribution, i.e. the distribution of X(t) for t
