We show that the canonical decomposition (comprising both the Meyer–Yoeurp and the Yoeurp decompositions) of a general X-valued local martingale is possible if and only if X has the UMD property. More precisely, X is a UMD Banach space if and only if for any X-valued local martingale M there exist a continuous local martingale Mc, a purely discontinuous quasi-left continuous local martingale Mq, and a purely discontinuous local martingale Ma with accessible jumps such that M = Mc + Mq + Ma. The corresponding weak L1-estimates are provided. Important tools used in the proof are a new version of Gundy’s decomposition of continuous-time martingales and weak L1-bounds for a certain class of vector-valued continuous-time martingale transforms.
