Subject: Brownian Bridge

Details: Let B(t) denote a process of Brownian motion.

Let Q(t) be a Brownian Bridge process.

Then, B(t)=(1+t) Q(t/(t+1)).

Using the fact that

P(max((b+B(t))/(1+t))>a)=exp(-2a(a-b))

show that for a Brownian Bridge Q(t)

P(max(Q(u)>a)=exp(-2 a^2)

where 0<=u<=1.

<br>This question involves making an appropriate substitution to get your expression in a required form. In the question we are told that:

<br>

<br>B(t) = (1+t)Q(t/t+1) (1)

<br>

<br>which, by simply rearranging, may be written ...
