Conditional Risk Mappings

Abstract: We introduce an axiomatic definition of a conditional convex risk mapping and we derive its properties. In particular, we prove a representation theorem for conditional risk mappings in terms of conditional expectations. We also develop dynamic programming relations for multistage optimization problems involving conditional risk mappings.

Keywords: Risk, Convex Analysis, Conjugate Duality, Stochastic Optimization, Dynamic Programming, Multi-stage Programming.
