### Complete Markets in Continuous Time

In the standard discrete time economies with a finite number of states, $n$, a complete markets economy is simply an economy with $n$ independent assets (Think Ljunqvist and Sargent Chapter 8). This ...

### Relationship of continuous and discrete time models

I am trying to understand two comments from a colleague. I have no clue about continuous time models. He said something like "just replace $\delta$ with $e^{-rdt}$ the Poisson process becomes a ...

### Matching problem in continuous time

Let's split each period into $n$ intervals. There's a continuum $u$ of unemployed and $v$ of vacancies. During each interval, there is a total of $X/n$ job offers. That means that each unemployed gets ...

### Kolmogorov-Forward-Equation with Entry and Exit

I'll try to ask this question in the most simplistic environment possible, so lets think about a household that can consume and save. After some cumbersome work, we have solved for the optimal savings ...

### Finding optimal path in continuous time

I have the following optimal control problem $$\max_{c_t,l_t} \int_0^{\infty} [ln(c_t)+\theta ln(1-l_t)]e^{-pt}dt$$ st. $$\dot{k_t}=k_t^{1/2}l_t^{1/2}-c_t-\beta l_t$$ $$k_0>0$$ I do big part of ...

### Solow model, time and steady state

Suppose we have a Solow model: $$Y(t)=C(t)+I(t)$$ $$I(t)=sY(t)$$ $$\dot K=I(t)-δK(t)$$ With a given Cobb-Douglas: $$Y(t)=Z(t)K^aL^{1-a}$$ $$y(t)=Y(t)/L(t)$$ $$k(t)=K(t)/L(t)$$  y=...

### Computing the continuous time survival rate

We have a population of people with different age $a$, time is indexed with $t$. There is a rate at which people die, $d(a, t)$. For simplicity, ignore births. I want to compute the evolution of the ...

### Forward-Looking HJB: Rewrite as PDV

We live in continuous time. Let there be some discount rate $D(t)$, which consists of a discount rate, and some death probability. $V(t)$ contains the flow value of, say, being alive. If you are alive,...
