Démonstration simplifiée d'un théorème de Knight (Martingale theory)
A well known theorem (Dambis, Dubins) asserts that a continuous martingale reduces to Brownian motion when time-changed by its own increasing process. Knight's theorem (LN in M 190) asserts that this operation performed on $n$ orthogonal martingales yields $n$ independent Brownian motions. The result is extended to Poisson processes
Comment: Still simpler proofs can be given, see 1448 (included in Revuz-Yor Continuous Martingales and Brownian Motion, Chapter V)
