Model Spaces of Regularity Structures for Space-Fractional SPDEs

We study model spaces, in the sense of Hairer, for stochastic partial differential equations involving the fractional Laplacian. We prove that the fractional Laplacian is a singular kernel suitable to apply the theory of regularity structures. Our main contribution is to study the dependence of the model space for a regularity structure on the three-parameter problem involving the spatial dimension, the polynomial order of the nonlinearity and the exponent of the fractional Laplacian. The goal is to investigate the growth of the model space under parameter variation. In particular, we prove several results in the approaching subcriticality limit leading to universal growth exponents of the regularity structure. A key role is played by the viewpoint that model spaces can be identified with families of rooted trees. Our proofs are based upon a geometrical construction similar to Newton polygons for classical Taylor series and various combinatorial arguments. We also present several explicit examples listing all elements with negative homogeneity by implementing a new symbolic software package to work with regularity structures. We use this package to illustrate our analytical results and to obtain new conjectures regarding coarse-grained network measures for model spaces.

In this article we consider static Bayesian parameter estimation for partially observed diffusions that are discretely observed. We work under the assumption that one must resort to discretizing the underlying diffusion process, for instance using the Euler-Maruyama method. Given this assumption, we show how one can use Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) and particularly particle MCMC [Andrieu, C. Read More


In this short note we provide a new way of constructing the subcritical and critical Gaussian multiplicative chaos (GMC) measures corresponding to the 2D Gaussian free field (GFF). The constructions are based on the theory of local sets of the Gaussian free field and are reminiscent of the constructions of multiplicative cascades using stopping lines. As a special case we recover E. Read More


In this paper, we extend the optimal securitization model of Pag\`es [41] and Possama\"i and Pag\`es [42] between an investor and a bank to a setting allowing both moral hazard and adverse selection. Following the recent approach to these problems of Cvitani\'c, Wan and Yang [12], we characterize explicitly and rigorously the so-called credible set of the continuation and temptation values of the bank, and obtain the value function of the investor as well as the optimal contracts through a recursive system of first-order variational inequalities with gradient constraints. We provide a detailed discussion of the properties of the optimal menu of contracts. Read More


We prove the optimal strong convergence rate of a fully discrete scheme, based on a splitting approach, for a stochastic nonlinear Schr\"odinger (NLS) equation. The main novelty of our method lies on the uniform a priori estimate and exponential integrability of a sequence of splitting processes which are used to approximate the solution of the stochastic NLS equation. We show that the splitting processes converge to the solution with strong order $1/2$. Read More


We consider a large market model of defaultable assets in which the asset price processes are modelled as Heston stochastic volatility models with default upon hitting a lower boundary. We assume that both the asset prices and their volatilities are correlated through systemic Brownian motions. We are interested in the loss process that arises in this setting and consider the large portfolio limit of the empirical measure for this system. Read More


Stochastic fractionally dissipative quasi-geostrophic type equation on $R^d$ with a multiplicative Gaussian noise is considered. We prove the existence of a martingale solution. The construction of the solution is based on the classical Faedo-Galerkin approximation, the compactness method, and the Jakubowski version of the Skorokhod Theorem for nonmetric spaces. Read More

Suppose Xt is either a regular exponential type Levy process or a Levy process with a bounded variation jumps measure. The distribution of the extrema of Xt play a crucial role in many financial and actuarial problems. This article employs the well known and powerful Riemann-Hilbert technique to derive the characteristic functions of the extrema for such Levy processes. Read More


Consider a surplus process which both of collected premium and payed claim size are two independent compound Poisson processes.

More precisely, it provides two mixture exponential approximations for ruin probability of such double stochastic compound poisson process. Read More
