The signature of a path \gamma is a sequence whose n-th term is the order-n iterated integrals of \gamma. It arises from solving multidimensional linear differential equations driven by \gamma. We are interested in relating the path properties of \gamma with its signature. If \gamma is C1, then an elegant formula of Hambly and Lyons relates the length of \gamma to the tail asymptotics of the signature. We show an analogous formula for the multidimensional Brownian motion,with the quadratic variation playing a similar role to the length. In the proof, we study the hyperbolic development of Brownian motion and also obtain a new subadditive estimate for the asymptotic of signature, which may be of independent interest. As a corollary, we strengthen the existing uniqueness results for the signatures of Brownian motion.
