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].
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.
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.
