The higher-order heat-type equation ∂u/∂t = ±∂ n u/∂x n has been investigated by many authors. With this equation is associated a pseudo-process (X t ) t 0 which is governed by a signed measure. In the even-order case, Krylov, [9], proved that the classical arc-sine law of Paul Lévy for standard Brownian motion holds for the pseudo-process (X t ) t 0 , that is, if T t is the sojourn time of (X t ) t 0 in the half line (0, +∞) up to time t, then P(T t ∈ ds) = ds π √ s(t−s) , 0 < s < t.
