"On the symmetry between the Root and Rost embeddings and their connection to certain optimal stopping problems";
Talk: Skorokhod embeddings, Martingale Optimal Transport and their applications, University of Oxford, UK (invited); 2016-03-16.

English abstract:
Recent works by Cox & Wang and Cox, Obloj & Touzi 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 relationship/symmetry between the Rost and Root solutions. This is joint work with M. Beiglböck, A. Cox and M. Huesmann.
