  2. 2. Games and Probabilistic Infinite-State Systems

    Author : Sven Sandberg; Parosh Abdulla; Luca de Alfaro; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; program verification; model checking; determinacy; strategy improvement; infinite games; parity games; mean payoff games; stochastic games; Büchi games; reachability games; limiting average; limiting behavior; Markov chains; infinite-state systems; lossy channel systems; vector addition systems; noisy Turing machines; Computer science; Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Computer programs keep finding their ways into new safety-critical applications, while at the same time growing more complex. This calls for new and better methods to verify the correctness of software. We focus on one approach to verifying systems, namely that of model checking. READ MORE

    Abstract : Games on graphs have become an indispensable tool in modern computer science. They provide powerful and expressive models for numerous phenomena and are extensively used in computer- aided verification, automata theory, logic, complexity theory, computational biology, etc. READ MORE

  5. 5. Some aspects of optimal switching and pricing Bermudan options

    Author : Ali Hamdi; Boualem Djehiche; Henrik Hult; Luis Alvarez; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of four papers that are all related to the Snell envelope. In the first paper, the Snell envelope is used as a formulation of a two-modes optimal switching problem. The obstacles are interconnected, take both profit and cost yields into account, and switching is based on both sides of the balance sheet. READ MORE
