The Itô-Ventzell formula and forward stochastic differential equations driven by Poisson random measures

Bernt Øksendal and Tusheng Zhang

Full-text: Open access


In this paper we obtain existence and uniqueness of solutions of forward stochastic differential equations driven by compensated Poisson random measures. To this end, an Itô-Ventzell formula for jump processes is proved and the flow properties of solutions of stochastic differential equations driven by compensated Poisson random measures are studied.
