Stationary distributions and convergence for Walsh diffusions
A Walsh diffusion on Euclidean space moves along each ray from the origin, as a solution to a stochastic differential equation with certain drift and diffusion coefficients, as long as it stays away from the origin. As it hits the origin, it instantaneously chooses a new direction according to a given probability law, called the spinning measure. A special example is a real-valued diffusion with skew reflections at the origin. This process continuously (in the weak sense) depends on the spinning measure. We determine a stationary measure for such process, explore long-term convergence to this distribution and establish an explicit rate of exponential convergence.
