Abstract

A representation of the potential operator of an absorbing Lévy process in the half space (0, ∞) × Rd - 1, d ≥ 2, is given in terms of three measures μ, over(μ, ̂) and over(μ, ̇) on [0, ∞) × Rd - 1 arising in the fluctuation theory of Lévy processes. In the case of a rotation invariant stable Lévy process, the potential kernel in the half space is computed explicitly. It will also be proved that the measure over(μ, ̂) is an excessive measure (an invariant measure under some conditions) of a Markov process, which is derived from the given Lévy process in a certain way.
