Electronic Communications in Probability http://ecp.ejpecp.org/ <p><strong></strong>The <strong>Electronic Communications in Probability</strong> (ECP) publishes short research articles in probability theory. Its sister journal, the <a href="http://ejp.ejpecp.org/" target="_self">Electronic Journal of Probability</a> (EJP), publishes full-length articles in probability theory. Short papers, those less than 12 pages, should be submitted to ECP first. EJP and ECP share the same editorial board, but with different Editors in Chief.</p><p>EJP and ECP are free access official journals of the <a href="http://www.imstat.org/">Institute of Mathematical Statistics</a> (IMS) and the <a href="http://isi.cbs.nl/BS/bshome.htm"> Bernoulli Society</a>.

Starting solely with the hypothesis that $\theta(p)&gt;0$, we prove that, for any $\alpha&gt;0$, there exists $\kappa&gt;0$ such that, with probability larger than $1-1/n^\alpha$, every pair of sites inside the box $\Lambda(n)$ are joined by a path having at most $\kappa(\ln n)^2$ closed sites.

This has to be made an assumption. Alternatively, one can assume that the matrices are invertible.</p></div></div></div> Sebastian Mentemeier http://ecp.ejpecp.org/article/view/3381 Wed, 19 Mar 2014 02:21:29 -0700 Hedging of game options under model uncertainty in discrete time http://ecp.ejpecp.org/article/view/2714 We introduce a setup of model uncertaintyin discrete time. In this setup wederive dual expressions for the super-replication prices of game options with upper semicontinuous payoffs. We show that the super-replication price is equal to the supremum over a special (non dominated) set of martingale measures, of the corresponding Dynkin games values. This type of results is also new for American options.

We then explain why, as a result, this is an example of a spin system that is always in the "high-temperature regime".
