High Dimensional Nonlinear Diffusion Stochastic Processes

This paintings is dedicated to high-dimensional (or large-scale) diffusion stochastic methods (DSPs) with nonlinear coefficients. those strategies are heavily linked to nonlinear Ito's stochastic traditional differential equations (ISODEs) and with the space-discretized types of nonlinear Ito's stochastic partial integro-differential equations.

Selected Topics On Continuous-Time Controlled Markov Chains And Markov Games

They shape a category of stochastic keep an eye on difficulties within which a unmarried decision-maker needs to optimize a given aim functionality. This publication can be serious about Markov video games, the place decision-makers (or gamers) attempt to optimize their very own target functionality.

For more details, see Ref. [55]. 3. Let X and Y be two random variables with quantile functions F−1 and G−1 , respectively, and finite means. Then, X ≤icx Y if, and only if, 1 p 1 F−1 (u) du ≤ p G−1 (u) du, for all p ∈ (0, 1). 2), we see that X ≤icx Y if, and only if, TVaR[X; p] ≤ TVaR[Y; p], for all p ∈ (0, 1), which is equivalent to CTE[X; p] ≤ CTE[Y; p], for all p ∈ (0, 1), in the continuous case, and they provide additional interpretations in the context of risk theory. Another characterization of the increasing convex order, which will be used later, is the following.

Proof. 15). 17) and, taking derivatives on the previous expression with respect to x, we get the result. 16). 16) implies the mean residual life order. Next, the inverse implication is proved. Let us suppose that X ≤mrl Y. 18) for all x ≤ y such that F(x), G(x) > 0, which concludes the proof. 2), we have X ≤hr Y ⇒ X ≤mrl Y. 18), we have X ≤mrl Y ⇒ X ≤icx Y. According to we have seen up to this point, notice that the verification of the mean residual life requires the evaluation of the incomplete integrals of the survival functions.

Therefore, to sum up, if k2 ≤ k1 and a1 k1 /(a1 − 1) ≤ a2 k2 /(a2 − 1), when the equalities do not hold at the same time, then X ≤icx Y, but X ≤st Y or X ≥st Y. 5 shows a particular example of this situation. 6, it is possible to establish a set of sufficient conditions for the increasing convex order in terms of the density functions. 7. Let X and Y be two continuous random variables with density functions f and g, respectively, and finite means such that E[X] ≤ E[Y]. If S− (g − f ) = 2 with the sign sequence +, −, +, then X ≤icx Y.
