##### List of papers

In this thesis we generalize results by Smoluchowski [43], Chandrasekhar[6], Kramers, and Nelson [30]. Their aim is to construct Brownian motion as a limit of stochastic processes with differentiable sample paths by exploiting a scaling limit which is a particular type of averaging studied by Papanicolao [35]. Their construction of Brownian motion differs from the one given by Einstein since it constitutes a dynamical theory of Brownian motion. Nelson sets off by studying scaled standard Ornstein-Uhlenbeck processes. Physically these describe classical point particles subject to a deterministic friction and an external random force of White Noise type, which models perpetuous collisions with surrounding(water) molecules. Nelson also studies the case when the particles are subject to an additional deterministic nonlinear force. The present thesis generalizes the work of Chandrasekhar in that it deals with finite dimensional α-stable Lévy processes with 0 < α < 2, and Fractional Brownian motion as driving noises and mathematical techniques like deterministic time change and a Girsanov theorem. We consider uniform convergence almost everywhere and in -sense. In order to pursue the limit we multiply all vector fields in the cotangent space by the scaling parameter including the noise. For α-stable Lévy processes this correspondsto scaling the process in the tangent space, , , according to . Sending β to infinity means sending time to infinity. In doing so the noise evolves with a different speed in time compared to the component processes. For α≠2, α-stable Lévy processes are of pure jump type, therefore the approximation by processes having continuous sample paths constitutes a valuable mathematical tool. α-stable Lévy processes exceed the class studied by Zhang [46]. In another publication related to this thesis we elaborate on including a mean-field term into the globally Lipschitz continuous nonlinear part of the drift while the noise is Brownian motion, whereas Narita [28] studied a linear dissipation containing a mean-field term. Also the classical McKean-Vlasov model is linear in the mean-field. In a result not included in this thesis the scaling result of Narita [29], which concerns another scaling limit of the tangent space process (velocity) towards a stationary distribution, is generalized to α-stable Lévy processes. The stationary distribution derived by Narita is related to the Boltzmann distribution. In the last part of this thesis we study Fractional Brownian motion with a focus on deriving a scaling limit of Smoluchowski-Kramers type. Since Fractional Brownian motion is no semimartingale the underlying theory of stochastic differential equations is rather involved. We choose to use a Girsanov theorem to approach the scaling limit since the exponent in the Girsanov denvsity does not contain the scaling parameter explicitly. We prove that the Girsanov theorem holds with a linear growth condition alone on the drift for 0 < H < 1, where H is the Hurst parameterof the Fractional Brownian motion.
