  Along with conventional problems of statistics and probability, the - vestigation of problems occurring in what is now referred to as stochastic theory of optimal control also started in the s and s. One of the most advanced aspects of this theory is the theory of optimal stopping rules, the development of which was considerably stimulated by A. Wald, whose Sequential ~nal~sis' .   Optimal Stopping Rules book. Read reviews from world’s largest community for readers. Although three decades have passed since the first publication of t 4/5(1).

In mathematics, the theory of optimal stopping or early stopping is concerned with the problem of choosing a time to take a particular action, in order to maximise an expected reward or minimise an expected cost. Optimal stopping problems can be found in areas of statistics, economics, and mathematical finance (related to the pricing of American options).

This chapter discusses optimal stopping rules for X n /n and S n / describes two cases: (i) z n = X n /n and (ii) z n = S n / existence of optimal stopping rules for z n = X n /n is established by Chow–: Y.S. Chow, K.K. Lan.   The theory of Optimal Stopping was considerably stimulated by A. Wald ().He showed that – in contrast to the classical methods of the Mathematical Statistics, according to which the decision is taken in a fixed (and nonrandom) time – the methods of the sequential analysis take observations sequentially and the decision is taken, generally speaking, at a random time whose value is.
