Let σ(t,t′) be the sigma-algebra generated by the differences Xs−Xs′ with s,s′∈(t,t′), where (Xt)−∞<t<∞ is the fractional Brownian motion with Hurst index H∈(0,1). We prove that for any two distinct timepoints t1 and t2 the sigma-algebras σ(t1−ε,t1+ε) and σ(t2−ε,t2+ε) are asymptotically independent as ε↘0. We show the independence in the strong sense that Shannon’s mutual information between the two σ-algebras tends to zero as ε↘0. Some generalizations and quantitative estimates are also provided.
