Student’s t Increments
Some moments and limiting properties of independent Student's t increments are studied. Independent Student's t increments are independent draws from not-truncated, truncated, and effectively truncated Student's t-distributions with shape parameters ν ≥ 1 and can be used to create random walks. It is found that sample paths created from truncated and effectively truncated Student's t-distributions are continuous. Sample paths for ν ≥ 3 Student's t-distributions are also continuous. Student's t increments should thus be useful in construction of stochastic processes and as noise driving terms in Langevin equations.
