The most known example of a class of non-Gaussian stochastic processes which belongs to the homogenous Wiener chaos of an arbitrary order N > 1 are probably Hermite processes of rank N. They generalize fractional Brownian motion (fBm) and Rosenblatt process in a natural way. They were introduced several decades ago. Yet, in contrast with fBm and many other Gaussian and stable stochastic processes and fields related to it, few results on path behavior of Hermite processes are available in the literature. For instance the natural issue of whether or not their paths are nowhere differentiable functions has not yet been solved even in the most simple case of the Rosenblatt process. The goal of our talk is to derive a quasi-optimal lower bound of the asymptotic behavior of local oscillations of paths of Hermite processes of any rank N, which, among other things, shows that these paths are nowhere differentiable functions.
