Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper deals with a class of backward stochastic differential equations with Poisson jumps and with random terminal times. We prove the existence and uniqueness result of adapted solution for such a BSDE under the assumption of non-Lipschitzian coefficient. We also derive two comparison theorems by applying a general Girsanov theorem and the linearized technique on the coefficient. By these we first show the existence and uniqueness of minimal solution for one-dimensional BSDE with jumps when its coefficient is continuous and has a linear growth. Then we give a general Feynman-Kac formula for a class of parabolic types of second-order partial differential and integral equations (PDIEs) by using the solution of corresponding BSDE with jumps. Finally, we exploit above Feynman-Kac formula and related comparison theorem to provide a probabilistic formula for the viscosity solution of a quasi-linear PDIE of parabolic type.
