This work provides a full characterization of the value function and solution(s) of an optimal stopping problem for a one-dimensional diffusion with an integral criterion.
The results hold under very weak assumptions, namely, the diffusion is assumed to be a weak solution of a stochastic differential equation satisfying the Engelbert-Schmidt conditions, while the (stochastic) discount rate and the integrand are required to satisfy only general integrability conditions.
