Optimal stopping for a diffusion with jumps


  • Ernesto Mordecki

    () (Centro de MatemÂtica, Eduardo Acevedo 1139, C.P. 11200, Montevideo, Uruguay Manuscript)


In this paper we give the closed form solution of some optimal stopping problems for processes derived from a diffusion with jumps. Within the possible applications, the results can be interpreted as pricing perpetual American Options under diffusion-jump information.
