From the journal


The restriction of an isotropic α-stable Lévy process Xα in ℝn on the fractal support F of certain finite Borel measures μ is introduced in three different ways: by means of the trace of its Dirichlet form on F and related Besov spaces, by its μ-local time on F and the corresponding time changed process, and by restricting on the fine support of μ via balayage spaces and potentials.

Moreover, for compact upper d-regular sets F with d > n − α an approximation by means of restrictions of Xα to small ɛ-neighborhoods of F is given.
