This study initially stemmed from my general interest in incomplete markets, which then shifted more specifically to the issue of unobservable and/or unrepresented state variables and dynamics, before settling on the more general notion of model risk. Also, underlying the obvious academic potential was a more practical focus on how the calibration and the hedging algorithms should be managed and coordinated, in order to mitigate that model risk.
