SMRI Seminar: Guo -- Stochastic Optimal Transport in Financial Mathematics

SMRI Seminar 

’Stochastic Optimal Transport in Financial Mathematics’ 
Ivan Guo (Monash University) 

Online via Zoom 
Tuesday 22nd February 3:00-4:00pm (AEDT) 


Abstract: In recent years, the field of optimal transport has attracted the attention of
many high-profile mathematicians with a wide range of applications.  In this talk we
will discuss some of its recent applications in financial mathematics, particularly on
the problems of model calibration, robust finance and portfolio optimisation.  Classical
topological duality results are extended to probabilistic settings, connecting
stochastic control problems with non-linear partial differential equations and providing
interesting practical interpretations in finance.  We will also look at how numerical
methods, including machine learning algorithms, can be implemented to solve these
