Model-free version of the BDG inequality and its applications

11 October 2018
Rafal Lochowski

In my talk I will briefly introduce model-free approach to mathematical finance, which uses Vovk's outer measure. Then, using pathwise BDG inequality obtained by Beigbloeck and Siorpaes and modification of Vovk's measure, I will present and prove a model-free version of this inequality for continuous price paths. Finally, I will discuss possible applications, like the existence and uniqueness of solutions of SDEs driven by continuous, model-free price paths. The talk will be based on the joint work with Farai Mhlanga and Lesiba Galane (University of Limpopo, South Africa)
