In science:

The random walk is called Parisian walk, and its local time is de fined to be the number of exit from some regions.
Local Time in Parisian Walkways
An F-adapted complex valued process {Zt } is called Parisian (walk) if (i) it is a martingale starting from a point in Z[ζ ] ≡ {a + bζ : a, b ∈ Z}, and (ii) Zt+1 − Zt ∈ {1, ζ , ζ 2} for all t.
Local Time in Parisian Walkways
Thus, a Parisian walk is a random walk on Z[ζ ].
Local Time in Parisian Walkways
In this paper. local time of a Parisian walk is defined to be the number of exit from ¯A1 , ¯A3 and ¯A5 .
Local Time in Parisian Walkways
For a Parisian walk Z , kZt k − Lt is a simple walk.
Local Time in Parisian Walkways

Occupation times of spectrally negative L\'evy processes with applications
More precisely, it is assumed that ruin occurs as soon as an excursion below a critical level is longer than a deterministic time; such models have been studied only very recently in [6, 7, 17] and the idea has been borrowed from finance and Parisian barrier options (see ).
Occupation times of spectrally negative L\'evy processes with applications
Of more interest in our context is the work by the same authors: in , instead of a deterministic delay, an exponentially distributed grace period is used in the definition of the Parisian ruin.
Occupation times of spectrally negative L\'evy processes with applications
More generally, using Itô’s excursion theory for spectrally negative Lévy processes, this Parisian risk model with exponential implementation delays can also be defined when the underlying surplus process has paths of unbounded variation.
