Quickest search over Brownian channels
In this paper we resolve an open problem proposed by Lai, Vincent Poor, Xin, and Georgiadis [Quickest search over multiple sequences. IEEE Trans. Inf. Theory 57(8) (2011), pp. 5375–5386]. Consider a sequence of Brownian motions with unknown drift equal to one or zero, which may be observed one at a time. We give a procedure for finding, as quickly as possible, a process which is a Brownian motion with non-zero drift. This original quickest search problem, in which the filtration itself is dependent on the observation strategy, is reduced to a single filtration impulse control and optimal stopping problem, which is in turn reduced to an optimal stopping problem for a reflected diffusion, which can be explicitly solved.
