The use of space-time transformations within the path integral approach to quantum problems has made it possible to solve some “complicated” problems by their mapping into some simple, solvable, ones. Here we present a simple example on the possibility of exploiting this technique within the realm of stochastic processes, by analyzing the case of overdamped motion in a time-dependent harmonic potential.
