Abstract

Starting from the 1-dimensional complex-valued Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process, we present two natural ways to imply the associated eigenfunctions of the 2-dimensional normal Ornstein-Uhlenbeck operators in the complex Hilbert space $L_{\Cnum}^2(\mu)$. We call the eigenfunctions Hermite-Laguerre-Ito polynomials. In addition, the Mehler summation formula for the complex process are shown.
