This paper is concerned with a stochastic linear-quadratic (LQ) optimal control problem on infinite time horizon, with regime switching, random coefficients, and cone control constraint. To tackle the problem, two new extended stochastic Riccati equations (ESREs) on infinite time horizon are introduced. The existence of the nonnegative solutions, in both standard and singular cases, is proved through a sequence of ESREs on finite time horizon. Based on this result and some approximation techniques, we obtain the optimal state feedback control and optimal value for the stochastic LQ problem explicitly. Finally, we apply these results to solve a lifetime portfolio selection problem of tracking a given wealth level with regime switching and portfolio constraint.
AbstractModelling of multiple simultaneous failures in insurance, finance and other areas of applied probability is important especially from the point of view of pandemic-type events. A benchmark limiting model for the analysis of multiple failures is the classical d-dimensional Brownian risk model (Brm), see Delsing et al. (Methodol. Comput. Appl. Probab. 22(3), 927–948 2020). From both theoretical and practical point of view, of interest is the calculation of the probability of multiple simultaneous failures in a given time horizon. The main findings of this contribution concern the approximation of the probability that at least k out of d components of Brm fail simultaneously. We derive both sharp bounds and asymptotic approximations of the probability of interest for the finite and the infinite time horizon. Our results extend previous findings of Dȩbicki et al. (J. Appl. Probab. 57(2), 597–612 2020) and Dȩbicki et al. (Stoch. Proc. Appl. 128(12), 4171–4206 2018).
AbstractThe ruin probability in the classical Brownian risk model can be explicitly calculated for both finite and infinite time horizon. This is not the case for the simultaneous ruin probability in the two-dimensional Brownian risk model. Relying on asymptotic theory, we derive in this contribution approximations for both simultaneous ruin probability and simultaneous ruin time for the two-dimensional Brownian risk model when the initial capital increases to infinity.
