In the first part of this thesis, we are interested in the pricing and hedging of European options. Stochastic Control - in Finance. These problems are moti-vated by the superhedging problem in nancial mathematics. These equations, first introduced by Pardoux and Peng (1990), are useful for the theory of contingent claim valuation, especially cases with constraints and for the theory of recursive utilities, introduced by Duffie and Epstein (1992a, 1992b).

Let G be a Borel subset of a metric space (Z;d Z), and Z t;z a Z-valued controlled process with initial conditions Z t;z(t) = z2Z. such as stochastic integration, Itô's Lemma, 1.1 Stochastic arget in Finance and Insurance In a geometric form, a stochastic target problem can be formulated as follows. The HJB equation corresponds to the case when the controls are bounded while the HJB variational inequality corresponds to the unbounded control case. The remaining part of the lectures focus on the more recent literature on stochastic control, namely stochastic target problems. In Finance.

Since many of the important applications of Stochastic Control are in financial applications, we will concentrate on applications in this field. I have co-authored a book, with Wendell Fleming, on viscosity solutions and stochastic control; Controlled Markov Processes and Viscosity Solutions, Springer-Verlag, 1993 (second edition in 2006), and authored or co-authored several articles on nonlinear partial differential equations, viscosity solutions, stochastic optimal control and mathematical finance.

The purpose of this paper is to review some of these applications together with appropriate solution methodologies and also to discuss the latter in comparison with one another.

The value of a stochastic control problem is normally identical to the viscosity solution of a Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman (HJB) equation or an HJB variational inequality. Stochastic control is a classical topic in applied mathematics and occurs in many practical situations when we have to take decisions under uncertainty. ; Chaînes de Markov et martingales en temps discret, 3ème année, PA Mathématiques Appliquées ().

Stochastic optimization problems arise in decision-making problems under uncertainty, and find various applications in economics and finance. The aim of this talk is to provide an overview on model-based stochastic optimal control and highlight some recent advances in its field. Stochastic control is one of the methods being used to find optimal decision-making strategies in fields such as operations research and mathematical finance. In a continuous time approach in a finance context, the state variable in the stochastic differential equation is usually wealth or net worth, and the controls are the shares placed at each time in the various assets.
