Abstract

For functionals $S=S(\omega)$ of the Brownian motion~$B$, we propose a method for finding stochastic integral representations based on the It\^o formula for the stochastic integral associated with~$B$. As an illustration of the method, we consider functionals of the ``maximal" type: $S_T$, $S_{T_{-a}}$, $S_{g_{T}}$, and $S_{\theta_T}$, where $S_T=\max_{t\le T}B_t$ , $S_{T_{-a}}=\max_{t\le T_{-a}}B_t$ with $T_{-a}=\inf\{{t>0:}\allowbreak B_t=-a\}$, $a>0$, and $S_{g_{T}}=\max_{t\le g_{T}} B_t$, $S_{\theta_T}=\max_{t\le \theta_T}B_t$, $g_{ T}$ and $\theta_T$ are {\em non}-Markov times: $g_{T}$~is the time of the last zero of Brownian motion on $[0, T]$ and $\theta_T$~is a time when the Brownian motion achieves its maximal value on $[0,T]$.
