Using Girsanov transformation, we derive a new link from stochastic differential equations of Markovian type to nonlinear parabolic equations of Burgers-KPZ type, in such a manner that the obtained Burgers-KPZ equation characterizes the path-independence property of the density process of Girsanov transformation for the stochastic differential equation. Our assertion also holds for SDEs on a connected differential manifold.
