R£Q,r<( Since X r _ 1 (£) G 5 r C 5< for r < t, we have {u; G O. : T(OJ) < t} G 5t for every i > 0. Therefore T is a stopping time. ■ It is known that the first passage time of every E G 33i is a stopping time. See [21] P. A. Meyer. 6. Let T be a stopping time on a filtered space (Cl, g, {3t}, P). -valued $T-measurable function S on Q. satisfying the condition S > T on£lis also a stopping time. §3. STOPPING TIMES 29 Proof. To show that Sis a stopping time, we show that {S < t) G foforeveryi G R+.

STOPPING TIMES transformation of R+ into R+, Xn is an J/QS^-measurable transformation of il into R+. Thus Xn is a random variable on (£2,3,P) assuming values in {k2~n : k G N} U {oo}.

All the above holds when X is a stopping time T in particular. Now if T is a stopping time, then T is an 5r/93f t -measurable mapping of £2 into R+. Since # n is an 25ft/93f4measurable mapping of R + into 1~+, Tn is an 3 T /23 It -measurable mapping of Q into R+.
