On the Fourier analytic structure of the Brownian graph

Jonathan M. Fraser and Tuomas Sahlsten

Vol. 11 (2018), No. 1, 115–132

In a previous article (Int. Math. Res. Not. 2014:10 (2014), 2730–2745) T. Orponen and the authors proved that the Fourier dimension of the graph of any real-valued function on is bounded above by 1. This partially answered a question of Kahane (1993) by showing that the graph of the Wiener process Wt (Brownian motion) is almost surely not a Salem set. In this article we complement this result by showing that the Fourier dimension of the graph of Wt is almost surely 1. In the proof we introduce a method based on Itô calculus to estimate Fourier transforms by reformulating the question in the language of Itô drift-diffusion processes and combine it with the classical work of Kahane on Brownian images.
