Title: BSEs, BSDEs, and fixed points.

Abstract: In this presentation, we will generalize BSDEs into Backward Stochastic Equations (BSEs):

Y_t+F_t(Y,M)+M_t=\xi+F_T(Y,M)+M_T

Then, we will show that there is a one-to-one correspondence between the solutions of the above BSE and the fixed points of the mappings determined by \xi and F. Using Banach fixed point theorem and Krasnoselskii fixed point theorem, we will show the existence and the uniqueness of solution for BSEs and BSDEs. In particular, novel existence results will be provided for (solution) path-dependent BSDEs and multidimensional quadratic mean-field BSDEs. This is a joint work with Patrick Cheridito.
