INDEPENDENT INCREMENT PROCESS
It is a process where sustained increases in non-overlapping time intervals, are independent random variables. So given the time:
The random variables, equal to the increases of the process Y:
When the increments suffered in intervals of equal length, are equally distributed, the process is called homogeneous with independent increments.
