Abstract

We consider a problem of predicting of the ultimate maximum of the process over a finite interval of time. Mathematically, this problem relates to a particular optimal stopping problem. In this paper we discuss exponential Lévy processes. As the Lévy processes, we discuss α-stable Lévy processes, 0 < α ≤ 2, and generalized hyperbolic Lévy processes. The method of solution uses the representations of these processes as time-changed Brownian motions with drift. Our results generalize results of papers [10] and [24].
