Hunting an invisible target

An invisible target on the integer line starts at $0$. On each round it either stays put, moves to the left or moves to the right by $1$ with probability $\frac{1}{3}$ each. You are then asked to ...

How to optimally bet on a biased coin?

A number $p$ is drawn uniformly at random from $[0, 1]$. You are then given a biased coin that turns up heads with probability $p$, but the number $p$ is not known to you. You start with a total ...

Kernel of the adjoint of the infinitesimal generator of Levy SDE

Consider S.D.Es driven by a combination of Brownian and non-Brownian Levy noise (like say Gamma). Then we know that the flow of the density of the S.D.E variable is given by the adjoint of the ...

When does the predictable $\sigma$-algebra $\mathcal{P}$ coincide with the optional $\sigma$-algebra $\mathcal{O}$?

The setup of my question is the following: Suppose that we have a measurable space $(\Omega,\mathcal{F})$ and a filtration $\mathbf{F} = (\mathcal{F}_t)_{t \geq 0}$ on it. Let $\mathcal{P}(\mathbf{F})$...

Ergodicity of differentiated processes

Let $S$ be a vector space, and $X$ a jointly-measurable random process/field with two parameters: $$X: [0,\infty)\times\mathbb{R}\times\Omega\to S,$$ i.e. $X_{t,\theta}:\Omega\to S$ are random ...

A conjecture in rate distortion theory and stochastic filtering

Let $(X_t)_{t\in T}$ be a stationary random process with known and fixed law $P_X$ describing a dynamic source. This source is to be encoded real-time by an encoder $e$ into an encoded message $E_t$ ...

In stochastic filtering you are interested in a process called the optimal filter $\pi_t$ which is a probability measure(d stochastic process). You can consider the unnormalized version $V_t$. The ...
Suppose I have signal process $\lambda_t$ following the dynamics \begin{aligned} \zeta_t&=\mu^{\zeta}(t,{\zeta}_t)dt+\sigma^{\zeta}(t,{\zeta}_t)dW^{\zeta}_t\\ \xi_t&=\mu^{\xi}(...
