Applied Mathematics Colloquium: Stochastic Control under Model Uncertainty in Quantitative Finance



  • Time:10:30-11:30
  • Date: 2019.11.19, Tuesday
  • Venue: MB537
  • Speaker: Professor Chao Zhou, Department of Mathematics, National University of Singapore


After the last financial crisis, model uncertainty attracted academics’ and practitioners’ attention. New theories have been established to deal with model uncertainty. In this talk, I will present my contribution to several problems due to model uncertainty in Quantitative Finance. Moreover, I will provide the necessary background to understand the results.
