A complete characterization of the possible joint distributions of the maximum and terminal value of uniformly integrable martingale has been known for some time, and the aim of this paper is to establish a similar characterization for continuous martingales of the joint law of the minimum, final value, and maximum, along with the direction of the final excursion. We solve this problem completely for the discrete analogue, that of a simple symmetric random walk stopped at some almost-surely… 
Existence and regularity of law density of a pair (diffusion, first component running maximum)
Duality for three robust hedging problems-finite strikes and maturities with tradeable exotics, or given joint/ marginal laws for the minimum and the terminal price
We establish (quasi-sure) duality for three robust hedging problems, by adapting the proof of the main result in Guo,Tan&Touzi[GTT15]. In all cases we consider superhedging for a general


The joint law of the maximum and terminal value of a martingale
SummaryIn this paper, we characterise the possible joint laws of the maximum and terminal value of a uniformly-integrable martingale. We also characterise the joint laws of the maximum and terminal
The maximum maximum of a martingale constrained by an intermediate law
Abstract. Let (Mt) be any martingale with M0≡ 0, an intermediate law M1∼μ1, and terminal law M2∼μ2, and let M¯2≡ sup0≤t≤2Mt. In this paper we prove that there exists an upper bound, with respect to
The maximum maximum of a martingale
Let (M t )0≤t≤1 be any martingale with initial law M0 ~ μ0 and terminal law M1 ~ μ1 and let S≡sup0≤t≤1M t . Then there is an upper bound, with respect to stochastic ordering of probability measures,
A Stochastic Control Approach to No-Arbitrage Bounds Given Marginals, with an Application to Lookback Options
This work provides a dual formulation which converts the superhedging problem into a continuous martingale optimal transportation problem, and shows that this formulation allows to recover previously known results about Lookback options.
Robust pricing and hedging of double no-touch options
This work establishes model-independent bounds on the price of double no-touch options based on the prices of more liquidly traded options (call and digital call options) and discusses two natural extensions of the notion of arbitrage, weak arbitrage and weak free lunch with vanishing risk which are needed to establish equivalence between the lack of Arbitrage and the existence of a market model.
We develop a theory of robust pricing and hedging of a weighted variance swap given market prices for a finite number of co‐maturing put options. We assume the put option prices do not admit
Robust Hedging of Barrier Options
This article considers the pricing and hedging of barrier options in a market in which call options are liquidly traded and can be used as hedging instruments. This use of call options means that
