Tail Behavior of Stopped Lévy Processes with Markov Modulation

Published in Econometric Theory, 2022

This is a follow up paper of Beare & Toda (2022), where we characterize the tail behavior of Markov-modulated Lévy processes that are stopped at state-dependent Poisson rates. In 2018, Brendan gave the project to Won-Ki, who was his student. I joined Won-Ki’s dissertation committee to advise on this project, and we essentially translated the discrete-time results in Beare & Toda (2022) to continuous-time. The CARA-Huggett economy example in Section 4 was recycled from an earlier version of Beare & Toda (2022).
