table processes are Levy processes whose paths possess a self-similarity property like that of Brownian motion. I will present some new identities for these processes, and focus in particular on the method of deriving them. This is quite modern, and uses two interesting techniques which I think everyone should see: the Lamperti transform, which converts between self-similarity and Levy-ness, and the Wiener-Hopf factorisation, which decomposes any Levy process into increasing and decreasing parts. I will explain these in detail, and probably get misty-eyed over how nice Levy processes are.

This is joint work with Andreas Kyprianou (Bath) and Juan Carlos Pardo (CIMAT).
