Abstract

We consider multiple optimal stopping rules for a finite (with horizon N) sequence of independent random variables. We are interested in finding a stopping rule which maximises the expected sum of k, 1 < k < N, observations. The optimal stopping rule and the value of the game are obtained. This result can be applied in the house-selling problem and in behavioural ecology problems.
