Which textbooks and online courses would you recommend to learn :

  • stochastic optimization
  • mean field games applied to quantitative finance.

My goal would be to read research articles like the ones written by Dr Emma Hubert I am familiar with stochastic calculus. I may prefer an online course, with corrected exercises, instead of a textbook. There are several textbooks. Which one could provide an introduction ?

Some textbooks :

  • Fleming H. and M. Soner (1993). Controlled Markov processes and viscosity solutions. Springer

  • Oksendal B. and A. Sulem (2006). Applied Stochastic Control Of Jump Diffusions. Springer

  • Dimitri P. Bertsekas (1995). Dynamic programming and optimal control. Athena Scientific
