A note about Khoshnevisan-Xiao conjecture. (English) Zbl 1101.60030

Summary: D. Khoshnevisan and Y. Xiao [Ann. Probab. 33, No. 3, 841–878 (2005; Zbl 1072.60040)] showed that the statement about almost surely vanishing Bessel-Riesz capacity of the image of a Borel set \(G \subset\mathbb{R}_+\) under a symmetric Lévy process \(X\) in \(\mathbb{R}^d\) is equivalent to the vanishing of a deterministic \(f\)-capacity for a particular function \(f\) defined in terms of the characteristic exponent of \(X\). The authors conjectured that a similar statement is true for all Lévy processes in \(\mathbb{R}^d\). We show that the conjecture is true provided we extend the definition of \(f\) and require certain integrability conditions which cannot be avoided in general.
