Let Z=(Zt)t≥0 be the Rosenblatt process with Hurst index H∈(1∕2,1). We prove joint continuity for the local time of Z, and establish Hölder conditions for the local time. These results are then used to study the irregularity of the sample paths of Z. Based on analogy with similar known results in the case of fractional Brownian motion, we believe our results are sharp. A main ingredient of our proof is a rather delicate spectral analysis of arbitrary linear combinations of integral operators, which arise from the representation of the Rosenblatt process as an element in the second chaos.
