Model-free superhedging duality
In a model-free discrete time financial market, we prove the superhedging duality theorem, where trading is allowed with dynamic and semistatic strategies. We also show that the initial cost of the cheapest portfolio that dominates a contingent claim on every possible path $\omega \in \Omega$, might be strictly greater than the upper bound of the no-arbitrage prices. We therefore characterize the subset of trajectories on which this duality gap disappears and prove that it is an analytic set.
