Abstract

A notion of semi-selfsimilarity of Rd-valued stochastic processes is introduced as a natural extension of the selfsimilarity. Several topics on semi-selfsimilar processes are studied: the existence of the exponent for semi-selfsimilar processes; characterization of semi-selfsimilar processes as scaling limits; relationship between semi-selfsimilar processes with independent increments and semi-selfdecomposable distributions, and examples; construction of semi-selfsimilar processes with stationary increments; and extension of the Lamperti transformation. Semi-stable processes where all joint distributions are multivariate semi-stable are also discussed in connection with semi-selfsimilar processes. A wide-sense semi-selfsimilarity is defined and shown to be reducible to semi-selfsimilarity.
