Abstract

The problem of finding minimax sequential estimation procedures for stochastic processes is considered. It is assumed that in addition to the loss associated with the error of estimation a cost of observing the process is incurred. A class of minimax sequential procedures is derived explicitly for a one-parameter exponential family of stochastic processes. The minimax sequential procedures are presented in some special models, in particular, for estimating a parameter of exponential families of diffusions, for estimating the mean or drift coefficients of the class of Ornstein-Uhlenbeck processes, for estimating the drift of a geometric Brownian motion and for estimating a parameter of a family of counting processes. A class of minimax sequential rules for a compound Poisson process with multinomial jumps is also found.
