Connections between optimal stopping and singular stochastic control
AbstractWe consider an optimal control problem for an Itô diffusion and a related stopping problem. Their value functions satisfy (d/dx)V=u and an optimal control defines an optimal stopping time. Conversely, we construct an optimal control from optimal stopping times, find a representation of V as an integral of u and describe the optimal state as a reflected process.
