We consider the optimal stopping problem v:= supE Bposed by Shiryaev at the International Conference on Advanced Stochastic Optimization Problems organized by the Steklov Institute of Mathematics in September 2012. Here T > 0 is a fixed time horizon, (B)is the Brownian motion, ε ∈ [0,T] is a constant, and Tis the set of stopping times taking values in [ε, T ]. The solution of this problem is characterized by a path dependent reflected backward stochastic differential equation, from which the continuity of ε → vfollows. For large enough ε, we obtain an explicit expression for v, and for small ε we have lower and upper bounds. The main result of the paper is the asymptotics of vas ε ↘ 0. As a by-product, we also obtain Lévy’s modulus of continuity result in the Lsense.
