On the distribution of maximum of a Brownian sheet restricted to a lower-dimensional set
We obtain sufficient conditions of stochastic equivalence of Gaussian random fields with special covariance function. These results generalize Doob's transformation (condition of stochastic equivalence of a Gaussian and a Wiener processes) to the case of random fields (condition of stochastic equivalence of a Gaussian process and a Brownian sheet). We look at the problem of finding the distribution of supremum of a Brownian sheet on a set with a dimension lower than the dimension of the field. We consider the probability of a Brownian sheet with a certain drift to attain zero level. The obtained results can significantly simplify the problem of finding distributions of functionals of a Brownian sheet by reducing it to the problem of finding distributions on parallelepipeds with dimension lower than the dimension of the field. We consider examples that verify validity of the obtained theorem by modeling corresponding fields and comparing empirical probabilities with theoretical ones.
