Existence of optimal controls for stochastic Volterra equations

  title={Existence of optimal controls for stochastic Volterra equations},
  author={Andr'es C'ardenas and Sergio Pulido and Rafael Serrano},
We provide sufficient conditions that guarantee the existence of relaxed optimal controls in the weak formulation of control problems for stochastic Volterra equations (SVEs). Our study can be applied to rough processes which arise when the kernel appearing in the controlled SVE is singular at zero. The proof of existence of relaxed optimal policies relies on the interaction between integrability hypotheses on the kernel, growth conditions on the running cost functional and on the coefficients of… 



Existence and optimality conditions for relaxed mean-field stochastic control problems

Necessary conditions for optimality in relaxed stochastic control problems

In this paper, we are concerned with optimal control problems where the system is driven by a stochastic differential equation of the Ito type. We study the relaxed model for which an optimal

Existence of Markov Controls and Characterization of Optimal Markov Controls

Given a solution of a controlled martingale problem it is shown under general conditions that there exists a solution having Markov controls which has the same cost as the original solution. This

Singular Optimal Stochastic Controls I: Existence

We apply the compactification method to study the control problem where the state is governed by an Ito stochastic differential equation allowing both classical and singular control. The problem is

A weak solution theory for stochastic Volterra equations of convolution type

We obtain general weak existence and stability results for stochastic convolution equations with jumps under mild regularity assumptions, allowing for non-Lipschitz coefficients and singular kernels.

On the existence of strict optimal controls for constrained, controlled Markov processes in continuous time

Closedness and convexity conditions are identified under which optimal controls in the class of strict controls exist for a large class of stochastic processes under infinite-horizon discounted,

Compactification methods in the control of degenerate diffusions: existence of an optimal control

This paper concerns the control of a degenerate diffusion. We study the existence of an optimal control for a diffusion which is the solution of the equation [d] where b and σ are continuous

This paper is concerned with linear quadratic control problems of stochastic differential equations (SDEs, in short) and stochastic Volterra integral equations (SVIEs, in short). Notice that for

Malliavin Calculus and Optimal Control of Stochastic Volterra Equations

It is shown that using Malliavin calculus, it is possible to formulate modified functional types of maximum principle suitable for stochastic Volterra (integral) equations, and this principle also applies to situations where the controller has only partial information available to base her decisions upon.

Mean Field Games with Singular Controls

The existence of relaxed solutions to mean eld games (MFGs for short) with singular controls with Skorokhod M1 topology on the space of cadlag functions is established and approximations of solutions results are proved.
