Given a bounded domain formula15 and two integro-differential operators formula17 of the form formula19 we study the fully nonlinear Bellman equation
with Dirichlet boundary conditions. Here, formula21 are nonnegative functions. We prove the existence of a nonnegative function formula23 which satisfies (0.1) almost everywhere. The main difficulty arises through the nonlocality of formula27 and the absence of regularity near the boundary.
