In this thesis we study a class of Backward Stochastic Differential Equations (BSDE) with superlinear driver process f adapted to a filtration F = fFt; t 2 [0; T]g supporting at least a d dimensional Brownian motion and a Poisson random measure on Rm n f0g in a deterministic time interval [0; T]. The superlinearity of f allows terminal conditions that can take the value +1 with positive probability. Such terminal conditions are called “singular.” A terminal condition is said to be Markovian if it is a deterministic function of a Markov process.The first goal of the present thesis is to construct solutions to the class of BSDE we work with when they are coupled with singular non-Markovian terminal conditions. We consider the following class of terminal conditions: 1 = 1 1f 1 Tg + A 1f 1>Tg where 1 is any stopping time with a bounded density in a neighborhood of T and 2 = 1 1AT +A 1Ac T where At, t 2 [0; T] is a decreasing sequence of events adapted to the filtration F that is continuous in probability at T (equivalently, AT = f 2 > Tg where 2 is any stopping time such that P( 2 = T) = 0). In this setting we prove that the minimal supersolutions of the BSDE are in fact solutions, i.e., they are continuous at time T and attain almost surely their terminal values. Let X be a d-dimensional diffusion process driven by the Brownian motion and with strongly elliptic covariance matrix. The second goal of the present thesis is to derive density formulas for the first exit time of X from a vii time varying domain. The existence of these densities show that such exit times can be used as 1 and 2 to define the terminal conditions 1 and 2: We also discuss the implications of our results in stochastic optimal control.

Continuity problem for backward stochastic differential equations with singular nonmarkovian terminal conditions and random terminal times
Samuel, Sharoy Augustine; Sezer, Ali Devin; Department of Financial Mathematics (2021-7)
We study a class of nonlinear BSDEs with a superlinear driver process f adapted to a filtration F and over a random time interval [0, S] where S is a stopping time of F. The filtration is assumed to support at least a d-dimensional Brownian motion as well as a Poisson random measure. The terminal condition ξ is allowed to take the value +∞, i.e., singular. Our goal is to show existence of solutions to the BSDE in this setting. We will do so by proving that the minimal supersolution to the BSDE is a so luti...
Boundary value problems for higher order linear impulsive differential equations
Uğur, Ömür; Akhmet, Marat (2006-07-01)
In this paper higher order linear impulsive differential equations with fixed moments of impulses subject to linear boundary conditions are studied. Green's formula is defined for piecewise differentiable functions. Properties of Green's functions for higher order impulsive boundary value problems are introduced. An appropriate example of the Green's function for a boundary value problem is provided. Furthermore, eigenvalue problems and basic properties of eigensolutions are considered.

Oscillation of second-order nonlinear differential equations with nonlinear damping
Tiryaki, A; Zafer, Ağacık (2004-01-01)
This paper is concerned with the oscillation of a class of general type second-order differential equations with nonlinear damping terms. Several new oscillation criteria are established for such a class of differential equations under quite general assumptions. Examples are also given to illustrate the results.
Periodic solutions and stability of differential equations with piecewise constant argument of generalized type
Büyükadalı, Cemil; Akhmet, Marat; Department of Mathematics (2009)
In this thesis, we study periodic solutions and stability of differential equations with piecewise constant argument of generalized type. These equations can be divided into three main classes: differential equations with retarded, alternately advanced-retarded, and state-dependent piecewise constant argument of generalized type. First, using the method of small parameter due to Poincaré, the existence and stability of periodic solutions of quasilinear differential equations with retarded piecewise constant...
Linear-linear basis functions for MLFMA solutions of magnetic-field and combined-field integral equations
Ergül, Özgür Salih (2007-04-01)
We present the linear-linear (LL) basis functions to improve the accuracy of the magnetic-field integral equation (MFIE) and the combined-field integral equation (CFIE) for three-dimensional electromagnetic scattering problems involving closed conductors. We consider the solutions of relatively large scattering problems by employing the multilevel fast multipole algorithm. Accuracy problems of MFIE and CFIE arising from their implementations with the conventional Rao-Wilton-Glisson (RWG) basis functions can...
