Description


This book presents recent progress made in stochastic portfolio optimization with asymmetry information, modeled through different filtrations.
The authors apply the theory of the enlargement of filtrations and solve the optimization problem. Two main types of enlargement of filtration are discussed: initial and progressive, using tools from various fields, such as from stochastic calculus and convex analysis, optimal stochastic control and backward stochastic differential equations.
This theoretical and numerical analysis is applied in different market settings to provide a good basis for the understanding of portfolio optimization with different information flow.

Contents
