Stochastic programs without duality gaps
This paper studies dynamic stochastic optimization problems parametrizedby a random variable. Such problems arise in many applications in operations research and mathematical ﬁnance. We give sufficient conditionsfor the existence of solutions and the absence of a duality gap. Our proofuses extended dynamic programming equations, whose validity is established under new relaxed conditions that generalize certain no-arbitrageconditions from mathematical ﬁnance.
