On asymptotic relations between singular and constrained control problems of one-dimensional diffusions
We study the asymptotic relations between certain singular and constrained control problems for one-dimensional diffusions with both discounted and ergodic objectives. By constrained control problems we mean that controlling is allowed only at independent Poisson arrival times. We show that when the underlying diffusion is recurrent, the solutions of the discounted problems converge in Abelian sense to those of their ergodic counterparts. Moreover, we show that the solutions of the constrained problems converge to those of their singular counterparts when the Poisson rate tends to infinity. We illustrate the results with drifted Brownian motion and Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process.
