Dynamic programming for stochastic target problems, Viscosity solutions and hedging in markets with Portfolio constraints and large investors


  • Rafael Serrano


The purpose of this expository article is to present a self-contained overview of some results on the characterization of the optimal value function of a stochastic target problem as (discontinuous) viscosity solution of a certain dynamic programming PDE and its application to the problem of hedging contingent claims in the presence of portfolio constraints and large investors.
