Financial Markets with Informational Asymmetries and Equilibrium

  • Umut Çetin
  • Albina Danilova
Part of the Probability Theory and Stochastic Modelling book series (PTSM, volume 90)


This chapter introduces the setup for the equilibrium models that extends, among others, the works of Kyle and Back. It also contains some key results that will be relevant for the characterisation of the equilibrium. Finally the equilibrium will be derived and discussed in Chaps.  7 and  8.
