Generalized integrated processes were introduced by Granger in 1998. From a statistical viewpoint, they extend the fractional autoregressive moving average processes used in time series analysis, and, from a probabilistic viewpoint, they extend the classical random walk to fractional analogues. In this talk, I will give an overview of the little we know and a glimpse of what we would like to know about those processes when they have no stationary solutions. I will explain why I find them interesting both for modeling and theoretical investigations. I will indicate open problems, share questions, doubts and uncertainties.

Part of the talk will be based on some joint work with Bill McCormick.
Questions, remarks and suggestions from the audience are most welcome any time during the talk.
