Strict positivity of the density for simple jump processes using the tools of support theorems. Application to the Kac equation without cutoff. (English) Zbl 1017.60063

The author establishes a support theorem for a nonlinear jump process having an infinite number of jumps. By using tools of Malliavin calculus for jump processes, he gets a lower bound of the law of the solution of a Kac equation by measure having a strictly positive density with respect to the Lebesgue measure.
