On pathwise quadratic variation for càdlàg functions

Abstract : We revisit Föllmer's concept of quadratic variation of a càdlàg function along a sequence of time partitions and discuss its relation with the Skorokhod topology. We show that in order to obtain a robust notion of pathwise quadratic variation applicable to sample paths of càdlàg processes , one must reformulate the definition of pathwise quadratic variation as a limit in Skorokhod topology of discrete approximations along the partition. The definition then simplifies and one obtains the Lebesgue decomposition of the pathwise quadratic variation as a result, rather than requiring it as an extra condition.
