Abstract [en]

This thesis treats a range of stochastic methods with various applications, most notably in finance. It is comprised of five articles, and a summary of the key concepts and results these are built on.

The first two papers consider a jump-to-default model, which is a model where some quantity, e.g. the price of a financial asset, is represented by a stochastic process which has continuous sample paths except for the possibility of a sudden drop to zero. In Paper I prices of European-type options in this model are studied together with the partial integro-differential equation that characterizes the price. In Paper II the price of a perpetual American put option in the same model is found in terms of explicit formulas. Both papers also study the parameter monotonicity and convexity properties of the option prices.

The third and fourth articles both deal with valuation problems in a jump-diffusion model. Paper III concerns the optimal level at which to exercise an American put option with finite time horizon. More specifically, the integral equation that characterizes the optimal boundary is studied. In Paper IV we consider a stochastic game between two players and determine the optimal value and exercise strategy using an iterative technique.

Paper V employs a similar iterative method to solve the statistical problem of determining the unknown drift of a stochastic process, where not only running time but also each observation of the process is costly.

Abstract [en]

We study the perpetual American put option in a general jump-to-default model, deriving an explicit expression for the price of the option.

We find that in some cases the optimal stopping boundary vanishes and thus it is not optimal to exercise the option before default occurs. Precise conditions for when this situation arises are given.

Furthermore we present a necessary and sufficient condition for convexity of the option price, and also show that a nonincreasing intensity is sufficient, but not necessary, to have convexity.

From this we also get conditions for when option prices are monotone in the model parameters.

Abstract [en]

The price of the American put option is frequently studied as the solution to an associated free-boundary problem. This free boundary, the optimal exercise boundary, determines the value of the option. In spectrally negative models the early exercise premium representation for the value of the option gives rise to an integral equation for the boundary. We study this integral equation and prove that the optimal exercise boundary is the unique solution and thus that the equation characterizes the free boundary. In a spectrally positive model, this approach does not give an equation for the boundary. We instead find lower and upper bounds for the true boundary which can be found by solving related equations.

Abstract [en]

This paper presents a study of a general two-player optimal stopping game in a jump-diffusion model. An iterative scheme to find the value of this game is derived, specifically the value is shown to be the limit of a sequence of stopping games for a related diffusion but with a running reward. Furthermore the convergence is uniform and exponential. The special case of a cancellable put option is studied.

Abstract [en]

We consider the sequential testing of two simple hypotheses for the drift of a Brownian motion when each observation of the underlying process is associated with a positive cost. In this setting where continuous monitoring of the underlying process is not feasible, the question is not only whether to stop or to continue at a given observation time, but also, if continuing,how to distribute the next observation time. Adopting a Bayesian methodology, we show that the value function can be characterized as the unique fixed point of an associated operator, and that it can be constructed using an iterative scheme. Moreover, the optimal sequential distribution of observation times can be described in terms of the fixed point.
