  1. 1. Optimal timing decisions in financial markets

    Author : Martin Vannestål; Erik Ekström; Luis H. R. Alvarez E.; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; optimal stopping; American options; optimal stopping games; incomplete information; Mathematics; Matematik;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of an introduction and five articles. A common theme in all the articles is optimal timing when acting on a financial market. The main topics are optimal selling of an asset, optimal exercising of an American option, optimal stopping games and optimal strategies in trend following trading. READ MORE

  2. 2. Optimal Stopping and Model Robustness in Mathematical Finance

    Author : Henrik Wanntorp; Johan Tysk; Svante Janson; Boualem Djehiche; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Optimal stopping; model robustness; American options; free boundary problems; hedging; option pricing; Mathematical statistics; Matematisk statistik;

    Abstract : Optimal stopping and mathematical finance are intimately connected since the value of an American option is given as the solution to an optimal stopping problem. Such a problem can be viewed as a game in which we are trying to maximize an expected reward. READ MORE

  3. 3. Optimal Sequential Decisions in Hidden-State Models

    Author : Juozas Vaicenavicius; Erik Ekström; Huyên Pham; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; sequential analysis; optimal stopping; optimal liquidation; drift uncertainty; incomplete information; stochastic filtering;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis consists of five research articles on the general topic of optimal decision making under uncertainty in a Bayesian framework. The papers are preceded by three introductory chapters.Papers I and II are dedicated to the problem of finding an optimal stopping strategy to liquidate an asset with unknown drift. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the optimal stopping time of learning

    Author : Anna Fedyszak-Koszela; Richard Bonner; Dmitrii Silvestrov; Jacek Malec; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; stopping time; MATHEMATICS; MATEMATIK;

    Abstract :  The goal of this thesis is to study the economics of computational learning. Attention is also paid to applications of computational learning models, especially Valiant's so-called `probably approximately correctly' (PAC) learning model, in econometric situations. READ MORE
