"On the symmetry between the Root and Rost embeddings and their connection to certain optimal stopping problems";

English abstract:
Recent works by A. Cox and J. Wang have highlighted the connection between the Rost/Root solutions to the Skorokhod Embedding Problem and certain optimal stopping problems. In this talk we present a simple probabilistic argument for this connection (as opposed to the original analytical ones) which furthermore implies an interesting symmetry between the Rost and Root solutions. This is joint work with M. Beiglböck, A. Cox and M. Huesmann.
