  journal={SIAM J. Financial Math.},
The original Kelly criterion provides a strategy to maximize the long-term growth of winnings in a sequence of simple Bernoulli bets with an edge, that is, when the expected return on each bet is positive. The objective of this work is to consider more general models of returns and the continuous time, or high frequency, limits of those models. 

On Solving Robust Log-Optimal Portfolio: A Supporting Hyperplane Approximation Approach

This paper proposes a supporting hyperplane approximation approach that allows us to reformulate a class of distributional robust logoptimal portfolio problems into a linear program, which can be solved very efficiently.
