The analysis makes use of nearly optimal Lyapunov functions. In this continuation, we remove the main limiting assumption of Part I by an inductive procedure as well as establish a lower bound which shows that our construction is radially sharp. We also prove a version of Peskir’s [7] generalized Tanaka formula adapted to patching together Lyapunov functions. This greatly simplifies the analysis used in previous works.
