We present a model of a continuous-time Markov branching process with the infinitesimal generating function defined by the geometric probability distribution. It is proved that the solution of the backward Kolmogorov equation is expressed by the composition of special functions – Wright function in the subcritical case and Lambert-W function in the critical case. We found the explicit form of conditional limit distribution in the subcritical branching reproduction. In the critical case, the extinction probability and probability mass function are expressed as a series containing Bell polynomial, Stirling numbers, and Lah numbers.
In this paper we study the existence of an optimal hedging strategy for the shortfall risk measure in the game options setup. We consider the continuous time Black–Scholes (BS) model. Our first result says that in the case where the game contingent claim (GCC) can be exercised only on a finite set of times, there exists an optimal strategy. Our second and main result is an example which demonstrates that for the case where the GCC can be stopped on the whole time interval, optimal portfolio strategies need not always exist.
In this article, the compound Poisson process of order k (CPPoK) is introduced and its properties are discussed. Further, using mixture of tempered stable subordinators (MTSS) and its right continuous inverse, the two subordinated CPPoK with various distributional properties are studied. It is also shown that the space and tempered space fractional versions of CPPoK and PPoK can be obtained, which generalize the process defined in [Statist. Probab. Lett. 82 (2012), 852–858].
Explicit solutions for a class of linear backward stochastic differential equations (BSDE) driven by Gaussian Volterra processes are given. These processes include the multifractional Brownian motion and the multifractional Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process. By an Itô formula, proven in the context of Malliavin calculus, the BSDE is associated to a linear second order partial differential equation with terminal condition whose solution is given by a Feynman-Kac type formula.
We consider a mixture with varying concentrations in which each component is described by a nonlinear regression model. A modified least squares estimator is used to estimate the regressions parameters. Asymptotic normality of the derived estimators is demonstrated. This result is applied to confidence sets construction. Performance of the confidence sets is assessed by simulations.
We consider the cable equation in the mild form driven by a general stochastic measure. The averaging principle for the equation is established. The rate of convergence is estimated. The regularity of the mild solution is also studied. The orders in time and space variables in the Holder condition for the solution are improved in comparison with previous results in the literature on this topic.
