On the Robustness of the Snell envelope

Pierre Del Moral, Peng Hu, Nadia Oudjane, Bruno Remillard We analyze the robustness properties of the Snell envelope backward evolution equation for the discrete time optimal stopping problem. We consider a series of approximation schemes, including cut-off type approximations, Euler discretization schemes, interpolation models, quantization tree models, and the Stochastic Mesh method of Broadie-Glasserman....

Nonzero-sum Stochastic Differential Games with Impulse Controls and Applications to Retail Energy Markets

RR-Fime-16-05 Rene Aïd, Matteo Basei, Giorgia Callegaro, Luciano Campi, Tiziano Vargiolu We consider a singular control problem with regime switching that arises in problems of optimal investment decisions of cash-constrained firms. The value function is proved to be the unique viscosity solution of the associated Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equation. Moreover, we give regularity properties of the...
