A model for Long-term Irreversible Capital Investment

We consider a model for a company’s project where an economic indicator (such as a price) measures how favourable market conditions are for the company’s products. Depending on the state of the indicator, the investor can increase the project’s capital until  default or bankruptcy time is reached, however decreasing capital is not allowed. The problem consists of determining the strategies which optimal profit once the cost of investment is discounted. Mathematically, this model is a singular stochastic control problem which, under suitable assumptions, admits explicit solutions.

Tuesday 17 March - Yavor Stoev| (LSE)
