Chu, Long; Kompas, Tom; Grafton, Quentin


We develop a stochastic optimal control framework to address an important class of economic problems where there are discontinuities and a decision maker is able to undertake impulse controls in response to unexpected disturbances. Our contribution is two fold: (1) to develop a linear programming algorithm that produces a consistent approximation of the maximum value and optimal policy functions in the context of stochastic impulse controls; and (2) to illustrate the economic benefits of...[Show more]
