Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will publish original research articles focused on the development and application of stochastic control theory for the analysis of financial and actuarial problems; it also invites the submission of manuscripts that consider new stochastic control tools, as well as models and methods for mathematical finance and actuarial science. Author submissions should be presented in a mathematically rigorous style. Innovative contributions that address key research questions are highly encouraged.

Potential topics of interest include, but is not limited to, the following subjects:

  • Theory and analysis of financial markets;
  • Stochastic optimal strategy;
  • Derivatives research;
  • Theory and analysis of actuarial science;
  • Portfolio selection;
  • Risk management and control;
  • Statistical learning and empirical financial studies based on advanced stochastic control methods;
  • Numerical and stochastic solution techniques for solving problems in finance;
  • Stochastic differential game.
