Abstract

We solve two optimal stopping problems whose payoR functions are the maximum and the minimum of two state variables driven by the Ornstein-Uhlenbeck processes. We consider a class of problems where we obtain analytical solutions. Furthermore, by making use of the analytical results we study some properties of exercise regions including convexity, symmetry, and continuity.
