In a domain bounded by a closed rectifiable Jordan curve, we obtain estimates for the modulus of a Cauchy-type integral and its derivatives in terms of the contour moduli of smoothness of the integrand and a metric characteristic of the curve.

↓ Abstract

Ukr. Mat. Zh. - 1999νmber=1. - 51, № 6. - pp. 744–752

For*w(u, v), (u, v)*∉ γ (here,*w(x, y), x≥0, y≥0*, is a Wiener field and γ is a certain closed curve on a plane), we construct the best mean-square estimate on the basis of the values of*w(x, y)* for (*x, y*)∈ γ. We also calculate the error of this estimate.

We derive equations that determine second moments of a random solution of a system of Itô linear differential equations with coefficients depending on a finite-valued random semi-Markov process. We obtain necessary and sufficient conditions for the asymptotic stability of solutions in the mean square with the use of moment equations and Lyapunov stochastic functions.

The stability and asymptotic stability of solutions of large-scale linear impulsive systems under structural perturbations are investigated. Sufficient conditions for stability and instability are formulated in terms of the fixed signs of special matrices.

We obtain estimates for the sum of deviations and sum of defects to power 1/2 in terms of the Valiron defect of the derivative at zero. In particular, the Fuchs hypothesis (1958) is verified.

### Optimal stopping times for solutions of nonlinear stochastic differential equations and their application to one problem of financial mathematics

↓ Abstract

Ukr. Mat. Zh. - 1999νmber=1. - 51, № 6. - pp. 804–809

We solve the problem of finding the optimal switching time for two alternative strategies at the financial market in the case where a random process*X* _{ t },*t ∈ [0, T]*, describing an investor's assets satisfies a nonlinear stochastic differential equation. We determine this switching time τ∈[0,*T*] as the optimal stopping time for a certain process*Y* _{ t } generated by the process*X* _{ t } so that the average investor's assets are maximized at the final time, i.e.,*EX* _{ T }.

Romanenko O. Yu., Sharkovsky O. M.

↓ Abstract

Ukr. Mat. Zh. - 1999νmber=1. - 51, № 6. - pp. 810–826

We investigate two classes of essentially nonlinear boundary-value problems by using methods of the theory of dynamical systems and two special metrics. We prove that, for boundary-value problems of both these classes, all solutions tend (in the first metric) to upper semicontinuous functions and, under sufficiently general conditions, the asymptotic behavior of almost every solution can be described (by using the second metric) by a certain stochastic process.

New exact relations are proved for the sojourn probability of a Wiener process between two time-de-pendent boundaries. The proof is based on the investigation of the heat-conduction equation in the domain determined by these functions-boundaries. The relations are given in the form of series.

Ukr. Mat. Zh. - 1999νmber=1. - 51, № 6. - pp. 847–853

For modified risk process with instantaneous reflection at the point $B > 0$ under which the considered process $$\zeta(t) = \zeta_{B, \mu}(t),\; \zeta(0) = u,\; 0 \leq u \leq B,$$ returns in the initial state $u$, we investigate the limit behavior of generating function of the first ruin moment as $u \rightarrow B$ and $B \rightarrow \infty$.
