Preprint
We consider a multi-period stochastic control problem where the multivariate driving stochastic factor of the system has known marginal distributions but uncertain dependence structure. To solve the problem, we propose to implement the nonparametric adaptive robust control framework. We aim to find the optimal control against the worst-case copulae...
Chapter
In this paper we study a class of risk-sensitive Markovian control problems in discrete time subject to model uncertainty. We consider a risk-sensitive discounted cost criterion with finite time horizon. The used methodology is the one of adaptive robust control combined with machine learning.
Preprint
We investigate optimal execution problems with instantaneous price impact and stochastic resilience. First, in the setting of linear price impact function we derive a closed-form recursion for the optimal strategy, generalizing previous results with deterministic transient price impact. Second, we develop a numerical algorithm for the case of nonli...

We consider a discrete time stochastic Markovian control problem under model uncertainty. Such uncertainty not only comes from the fact that the true probability law of the underlying stochastic process is unknown, but the parametric family of probability distributions which the true law belongs to is also unknown. We propose a nonparametric adapti...

Article
In this paper, we study a class of time-inconsistent terminal Markovian control problems in discrete time subject to model uncertainty. We combine the concept of the sub-game perfect strategies with the adaptive robust stochastic control method to tackle the theoretical aspects of the considered stochastic control problem. Consequently, as an impor...

In this paper we propose a new methodology for solving a discrete time stochastic Markovian control problem under model uncertainty. By utilizing the Dirichlet process, we model the unknown distribution of the underlying stochastic process as a random probability measure and achieve online learning in a Bayesian manner. Our approach integrates opti...

Preprint
Full-text available
We investigate the adaptive robust control framework for portfolio optimization and loss-based hedging under drift and volatility uncertainty. Adaptive robust problems offer many advantages but require handling a double optimization problem (infimum over market measures, supremum over the control) at each instance. Moreover, the underlying Bellman...

Full-text available
In this paper we propose a new methodology for solving an uncertain stochastic Markovian control problem in discrete time. We call the proposed methodology the adaptive robust control. We demonstrate that the uncertain control problem under consideration can be solved in terms of associated adaptive robust Bellman equation. The success of our appro...

Full-text available
Assuming that one-step transition kernel of a discrete time, time-homogenous Markov chain model is parameterized by a parameter $\theta\in \boldsymbol \Theta$, we derive a recursive (in time) construction of confidence regions for the unknown parameter of interest, say $\theta^*$. The key step in this construction is derivation of a recursive schem...

We present an arbitrage free theoretical framework for modeling bid and ask prices of dividend paying securities in a discrete time setup using theory of dynamic acceptability indices. In the first part of the paper we develop the theory of dynamic subscale invariant performance measures, on a general probability space, and discrete time setup. We...
