Strassen’s classical martingale coupling theorem states that two random vectors are ordered in the convex (resp. increasing convex) stochastic order if and only if they admit a martingale (resp. submartingale) coupling. By analysing topological properties of spaces of probability measures equipped with a Wasserstein metric and applying a measurable selection theorem, we prove a conditional version of this result for random vectors conditioned on a random element taking values in a general measurable space. We provide an analogue of the conditional martingale coupling theorem in the language of probability kernels, and discuss how it can be applied in the analysis of pseudo-marginal Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithms. We also illustrate how our results imply the existence of a measurable minimiser in the context of martingale optimal transport.

Heino, Joonas (International Statistical Institute; Bernoulli Society for Mathematical Statistics and Probability, 2018)We show that a uniform measure density condition implies game regularity for all 2 < p < ∞ in a stochastic game called “tug-of-war with noise”. The proof utilizes suitable choices of strategies combined with estimates for ...
Cox, Sonja; Geiss, Stefan (Springer, 2021)We consider decoupling inequalities for random variables taking values in a Banach space X. We restrict the class of distributions that appear as conditional distributions while decoupling and show that each adapted process ...
Environmentally-induced noise dampens and reddens with increasing trophic level in a complex food web Kuparinen, Anna; Perälä, Tommi; Martinez, Neo D.; Valdovinos, Fernanda S. (Blackwell, 2019)Stochastic variability of key abiotic factors including temperature, precipitation and the availability of light and nutrients greatly influences species’ ecological function and evolutionary fate. Despite such influence, ...
Geiss, Christel; Labart, Céline; Luoto, Antti (International Statistical Institute, 2020)In this paper, we consider the random walk approximation of the solution of a Markovian BSDE whose terminal condition is a locally Hölder continuous function of the Brownian motion. We state the rate of the L2-convergence ...
