On martingale problems and Feller processes. (English) Zbl 1390.60278
Summary: Let \(A\) be a pseudo-differential operator with negative definite symbol \(q\). In this paper we establish a sufficient condition such that the well-posedness of the \((A,C_c^{\infty}(\mathbb{R}^d))\)-martingale problem implies that the unique solution to the martingale problem is a Feller process. This provides a proof of a former claim by van Casteren. As an application we prove new existence and uniqueness results for Lévy-driven stochastic differential equations and stable-like processes with unbounded coefficients.
