Viscosity solutions of second-order equations, stochastic control and stochastic differential games. (English) Zbl 0825.49042
Stochastic differential systems, stochastic control theory and applications, Proc. Workshop Minneapolis/Minn. 1986, IMA Vol. Math. Appl. 10, 293-309 (1988).
This is an excellent summary of recent results 9up to early 1988) regarding viscosity solutions of second-order, fully nonlinear, partial differential equations, and their connection with stochastic control theory and gives the ideas behind the proofs.
