In this paper we present a set of results relating to the occupation time α(t) of a process X(·). The first set of results concerns exact characterizations of α(t), e.g. in terms of its transform up to an exponentially distributed epoch. In addition, we establish a central limit theorem (entailing that a centered and normalized version of α(t)/t converges to a zero-mean normal random variable as t→∞) and the tail asymptotics of P(α(t)/t≥q). We apply our findings to spectrally positive Lévy processes reflected at the infimum and establish various new occupation time results for the corresponding model.
