I have never seen that stated as part of the definition, though it is true.

Express X(s+t) as X(s) + [X(s+t) - X(s)], expand, and apply
independent increments, the bilinearity of covariance, and what you know
about the moments of a normal distribution. That will probably get you
what you want.

Hello,
Part of the definition of standard Brownian motion X(t), as I
understand it, is that X(s), X(s+t) are normally distributed, with
cov( X(s), X(s+t) ) = s. Is there an expression for cov( X(s)^2,
X(s+t)^2 ) ?

Thank you!

KH
