Résultats d'Azéma en théorie générale des processus (General theory of processes)

This paper presents several results from a paper of Azéma (*Invent. Math.*, **18**, 1972) which have become (in a slightly extended version) standard tools in the general theory of processes. The problem is that of ``localizing'' a time $L$ which is not a stopping time. With $L$ are associated the supermartingale $c^L_t=P\{L>t|{\cal F}_t\}$ and the previsible increasing processes $p^L$ which generates it (and is the dual previsible projection of the unit mass on the graph of $L$). Then the left support of $dp^L$ is the smallest left-closed previsible set containing the graph of $L$, while the set $\{c^L_-=1\}$ is the greatest previsible set to the left of $L$. Other useful results are the following: given a progressive process $X$, the process $\limsup_{s\rightarrow t} X_s$ is optional, previsible if $s<t$ is added, and a few similar results

Comment: These results have been included (with their optional counterpart, whose interest was discovered later) in Dellacherie-Meyer,*Probabilités et Potentiel*, Vol. E, Chapter XX **12**--17

Keywords: Optimal stopping, Previsible processes
