Limit Theorem for Controlled Backward SDEs and Homogenization of Hamilton–Jacobi–Bellman Equations

Limit Theorem for Controlled Backward SDEs and Homogenization of Hamilton–Jacobi–Bellman... We prove a convergence theorem for a family of value functions associated with stochastic control problems whose cost functions are defined by backward stochastic differential equations. The limit function is characterized as a viscosity solution to a fully nonlinear partial differential equation of second order. The key assumption we use in our approach is shown to be a necessary and sufficient assumption for the homogenizability of the control problem. The results generalize partially homogenization problems for Hamilton–Jacobi–Bellman equations treated recently by Alvarez and Bardi by viscosity solution methods. In contrast to their approach, we use mainly probabilistic arguments, and discuss a stochastic control interpretation for the limit equation. Applied Mathematics and Optimization Springer Journals
