Publisher: New York University 2003
Number of pages: 121
An introduction to those aspects of partial differential equations and optimal control most relevant to finance. PDE’s naturally associated to diffusion processes: the forward and backward Kolmogorov equations and their applications. Linear parabolic equations: fundamental solution, boundary value problems, maximum principle, transform methods. Dynamic programming and optimal control: Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equation, verification arguments, optimal stopping. Applications to finance will be distributed throughout the course.
