Markov properties for point processes on the plane

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


It is proved that for a wide class of point processes indexed by the positive quadrant of the plane, and for a class of compact sets in this quadrant, the germ a-field is equal to the a-field generated by the values of the process on the set. Therefore, there exists a large family of point processes in the plane (and among them the spatial Poisson process) which satisfy the sharp Markov property in the sense of P. Levy. The strong Markov property with respect to stopping lines is also studied. Some examples are obtained by taking transformations of the probability measure.
