Sampling from Unknown Transition Densities of Diffusion processes.

In this paper, we introduce a new method of sampling from transition densities of diffusion processes including those unknown in closed forms by solving a partial differential equation satisfied by

Generative Modeling with Denoising Auto-Encoders and Langevin Sampling

It is shown that both DAE and DSM provide estimates of the score of the Gaussian smoothed population density, allowing the machinery of Empirical Processes to apply to the homotopy method of arXiv:1907.05600.

On the Convergence of Higher Order Hedging Schemes: The Delta-Gamma Case

It is found that the delta-gamma strategy produces higher convergence rates than the usual delta strategy.

Endogenous Completeness of Diffusion Driven Equilibrium Markets

We study the existence of dynamic equilibria with endogenously complete markets in continuous-time, heterogenous agents economies driven by diffusion processes. Our main results show that under



First Passage Densities and Boundary Crossing Probabilities for Diffusion Processes

We consider the boundary crossing problem for time-homogeneous diffusions and general curvilinear boundaries. Bounds are derived for the approximation error of the one-sided (upper) boundary crossing

Comparison theorem and estimates for transition probability densities of diffusion processes

We establish several comparison theorems for the transition probability density pb(x,t,y) of Brownian motion with drift b, and deduce explicit, sharp lower and upper bounds for pb(x,t,y) in terms of

Some remarks on the Rayleigh process

The transition p.d.f. for a one-dimensional Rayleigh process in the presence of an absorption condition or a zero-flux condition in the origin is obtained in closed form. The first-passage-time
