Optimal Stopping Problems in Mathematical Finance

Abstract:  Optimal stopping theory has again become an active area of
research, one of the reasons being their importance for pricing American
options. In this talk two new methods for finding optimal stopping rules
are described. The first method is discrete in nature and may be used to
construct algorithms of simulation type. The second method pertains to
diffusion processes and uses suitable martingales. Applications to
mathematical finance are described.
