Abstract:

This paper concerns the notion of quadratic variation and covariation for Banach valued processes and related Itô formula. If $\X$ and $\Y$ take respectively values in Banach spaces $B_{1}$ and $B_{2}$ (denoted by $(B_{1}\hat{\otimes}_{\pi}B_{2})^{\ast}$) and $\chi$ is a suitable subspace of the dual of the projective tensor product of $B_{1}$ and $B_{2}$ we define the so-called $\chi$-covariation of $\X$ and $\Y$. If $\X=\Y$ the $\chi$-covariation is called $\chi$-quadratic variation. The notion of $\chi$-quadratic variation is a natural generalization of the one introduced by Métivier-Pellaumail and Dinculeanu which is too restrictive for many applications. In particular, if $\chi$ is the whole space $(B_{1}\hat{\otimes}_{\pi}B_{1})^{\ast}$ then the $\chi$-quadratic variation coincides with the quadratic variation of a $B_{1}$-valued semimartingale. We evaluate the $\chi$-covariation of various processes for several examples of $\chi$ with a particular attention to the case $B_{1}=B_{2}=C([-\tau,0])$ for some $\tau>0$ and $\X$ and $\Y$ being \textit{window processes}. If $X$ is a real process, we call window process associated with $X$ the $C([-\tau,0])$-valued process $\X:=X(\cdot)$ defined by $X_t(y) = X_{t+y}$, where $y \in [-\tau,0]$.
