We construct a family of martingales with Gaussian marginal distributions. We give a weak construction as Markov, inhomogeneous in time processes, and compute their infinitesimal generators. We give the predictable quadratic variation and show that the paths are not continuous. The construction uses distributions G Ïƒ having a log-convolution semigroup property. Further, we categorize these processes as belonging to one of two classes, one of which is made up of piecewise deterministic pure jump processes. This class includes the case where G Ïƒ is an inverse log-Poisson distribution. The processes in the second class include the case where G Ïƒ is an inverse log-gamma distribution. The richness of the family has the potential to allow for the imposition of specifications other than the marginal distributions.
