Stochastic delay differential equations

Aladağlı, E. Ezgi
In many areas of science like physics, ecology, biology, economics, engineering, financial mathematics etc. phenomenas do not show their effect immediately at the moment of their occurrence. Generally, they influence the future states. In order to understand the structure and quantitative behavior of such systems, stochastic delay differential equations (SDDEs) are constructed while inserting the information that are obtained from the past phenomena into the stochastic differential equations (SDEs). SDDEs become a new interest area due to the their potential to capture reality better. It can be said that SDDEs are in the infancy stage when we consider the SDEs. Some numerical approaches to SDDEs are constructed because obtaining closed form solutions by the help of stochastic calculus is very difficult most of the time and for some equations it is impossible. In recent years, scientist who are interest in economy and finance study option pricing formulation for systems that include time delay which can be stochastic or deterministic. The aim of this thesis is to understand general forms of SDDEs and their solution process for the deterministic time delay. Some examples are provided to see the exact solution process. Moreover, we examine numerical techniques to obtain approximate solution processes. In order to understand effect of delay term, these techniques are used to simulate the solution process for different choices of delay terms and coefficients. In the application part of the thesis, we investigate the stock returns and European call option price when the system is modeled with SDDEs. 


Numerical studies of Korteweg-de Vries equation with random input data
Üreten, Mehmet Alp; Yücel, Hamdullah; Uğur, Ömür; Department of Scientific Computing (2018)
Differential equations are the primary tool to mathematically model physical phenomena in industry and natural science and to gain knowledge about its features. Deterministic differential equations does not sufficiently model physically observed phenomena since there exist naturally inevitable uncertainties in nature. Employing random variables or processes as inputs or coefficients of the differential equations yields a stochastic differential equation which can clarify unnoticed features of physical event...
Boundary value problems for higher order linear impulsive differential equations
Uğur, Ömür; Akhmet, Marat; Taşeli, Hasan; Department of Mathematics (2003)
The theory of impulsive di®erential equations has become an important area of research in recent years. Linear equations, meanwhile, are fundamental in most branches of applied mathematics, science, and technology. The theory of higher order linear impulsive equations, however, has not been studied as much as the cor- responding theory of ordinary di®erential equations. In this work, higher order linear impulsive equations at xed moments of impulses together with certain boundary conditions are investigated...
Asymptotic integration of impulsive differential equations
Doğru Akgöl, Sibel; Ağacık, Zafer; Özbekler, Abdullah; Department of Mathematics (2017)
The main objective of this thesis is to investigate asymptotic properties of the solutions of differential equations under impulse effect, and in this way to fulfill the gap in the literature about asymptotic integration of impulsive differential equations. In this process our main instruments are fixed point theorems; lemmas on compactness; principal and nonprincipal solutions of impulsive differential equations and Cauchy function for impulsive differential equations. The thesis consists of five chapters....
Two studies on backward stochastic differential equations
Tunç, Vildan; Sezer, Ali Devin; Department of Financial Mathematics (2012)
Backward stochastic differential equations appear in many areas of research including mathematical finance, nonlinear partial differential equations, financial economics and stochastic control. The first existence and uniqueness result for nonlinear backward stochastic differential equations was given by Pardoux and Peng (Adapted solution of a backward stochastic differential equation. System and Control Letters, 1990). They looked for an adapted pair of processes {x(t); y(t)}; t is in [0; 1]} with values i...
Stochastic Hybrid Systems of Financial and Economical Processess: Identificatied, Optimized and Controlled
Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm; Yolcu Okur, Yeliz; Yerlikaya Özkurt, Fatma; Kuter, Semih; Özmen, Ayşe; Karimov, Azar(2013-12-31)
This research project will scientifically broaden, deepen and apply a scientific unified approach of both identification and optimal control of Stochastic Differential Equations with Jumps (SHSJs), motivated by and foreseen for purposes of financial mathematics and actuarial sciences. SHSJs and further structured and detailed models are in the scope of our framework, and special interests pursued consisted in a. refinement of Parameter Estimation for SDEs and b. Portfolio Optimization and, as a future exten...
