**Some norm estimates for semimartingales.**
*(English)*
Zbl 1288.60054

The first goal of the paper is to introduce a norm which characterizes square integrable semimartingales, under a fixed (linear) probability measure. The main feature is that the norm involves only the semimartingale itself, without involving directly its Doob-Meyer decomposition. It is proved that a progressively measurable process is a square integrable semimartingale if and only if it has finite norm. Then the norm is extended to semimartingales under nonlinear expectations, in particular, the \(G\)-expectation. It is proved that any progressively measurable process with finite norm under \(G\)-expectation has to be a semimartingale under each probability measure. Using a similar idea, a new norm for the barriers of doubly reflected backward stochastic differential equations (BSDEs) is introduced and some a priori estimates for the solutions are established. The introduced norm provides an alternative but more tractable characterization for the standard Mokobodzki’s condition.
