Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue focuses on applications of Markov processes to risk management, queuing theory, inventory theory, mathematical finance, and population dynamics (including epidemics). We invite both theoretical and applied contributions to the fields enumerated below, and exit problems are of special interest.

A few examples (not exclusive) of topics of interest are:

  • Optimal dividends for absorbed or reflected processes, including bankruptcy
  • Reinsurance and reinsurance games
  • Optimal stopping and American options
  • Real options
  • Stability and control of population models

Prof. Dr. Florin Avram
Guest Editor

Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process.
