Abstract

We consider a fractional Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process involving a stochastic forcing term in the drift, as a solution of a linear stochastic differential equation driven by a fractional Brownian motion. For such process we specify mean and covariance functions, concentrating on their asymptotic behavior. This gives us a sort of short- or long-range dependence, under specified hypotheses on the covariance of the forcing process. Applications of this process in neuronal modeling are discussed, providing an example of a stochastic forcing term as a linear combination of Heaviside functions with random center. Simulation algorithms for the sample path of this process are given.
