In a variety of applications in finance and insurance, most temporal risk-and-return optimization problems may be formulated in terms of optimal stopping problems for a given trading strategy of an investor and the underlying financial asset price process. Depending on the nature of the problem, it may be reduced to finding a critical value (optimal stopping boundary) of the underlying asset price beyond which it is optimal to exercise the trading strategy at the first instance that the asset price process crosses the boundary. This is a first passage problem, which has attracted considerable attention over the years since the seminal work of D. A. Darling and A. J. F. Siegert (Annals of Mathematical Statistics, 24(4), p. 624-639, 1953). Recent developments in modern probability theory allow one to obtain analytical solutions or approximate solutions to some first passage problems.
In this Special Issue, entitled “First Passage Problems in Finance and Insurance”, I would like to invite you to submit your latest research paper for publication in the “Risks” journal. This Issue will provide an outlet for researchers to present up-to-date mathematical methods and applications in finance and insurance. High-quality research papers in areas related to first passage problems are welcome. Papers may address theoretical, numerical or practical issues in these areas.
