In general it is not possible to reduce impulse control to optimal stopping, because the choice of the first intervention time \(\tau _1\) and the first impulse \(\zeta _1\) will influence the next and so on. However, if we allow only (up to) a fixed finite number n of interventions, then the corresponding impulse control problem can be solved by solving iteratively n optimal stopping problems.
