Reflected and Doubly Reflected Backward Stochastic Differential Equations with Time-Delayed Generators

  • Monia KaroufEmail author


In this paper, we study reflected backward stochastic differential equations with two reflecting barriers and time-delayed generators (delay RBSDEs for short). We consider the case of Brownian noise as well as the case of Brownian and Poisson noise. For both cases, we show the existence and uniqueness of the solution and give a comparison theorem.
