Stochastic differential equations have Taylor expansions in terms of iterated Wiener integrals. The convergence of such expansion depends on the limiting behavior of the order-N iterated integrals as N tends to infinity. Recently, there has been increased interests in processes stopped at a random time. A breakthrough in the study of the iterated integrals of Brownian motion up to the exit time of a domain was included in the work of Lyons-Ni (2012). The paper leaves open an interesting question: what is the sharp rate of decay for the expected iterated integrals up to the exit time. We will review the state of the art in this problem and report some recent progress. Joint work with Ni Hao (UCL).
