  1. 11. The Risk-Free Rate’s Impact on Stock Returns with Representative Fund Managers

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Företagsekonomiska institutionen

    Author : Daniel Gardtman; Simon Svensson; [2013]
    Keywords : Asset Pricing; Agency Problem; Fund Managers; Risk-Free Rate; Risk Aversion; Stock Returns; Business and Economics;

    Abstract : In this thesis, the risk-free rate’s impact on stock market excess returns was examined. Firstly, theoretical arguments were made for that a low risk-free rate might lower the excess return on the stock market, since this increases the incentive for fund managers to increase variance of returns.

  2. 12. Automatic registration of myocardial perfusion images

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematik LTH

    Author : Daniel Svensson; [2012]
    Keywords : Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : Myocardial perfusion is an indicator of heart health that can be used to locate damaged areas of the heart. It can be measured by an imaging modality such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). When measuring myocardial perfusion in a living human we must align images over time to correct for motion caused by breathing. READ MORE

  3. 13. Synthesis and characterization of tetraosmium clusters containing ferrocenyl based diphosphine ligands as potential catalysts in asymmetric hydrogenation

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiska institutionen

    Author : Daniel Svensson; [2012]
    Keywords : Oorganisk kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : The metal cluster [H4Os4(CO)12] was treated with various chiral ferrocenyl diphosphines of the Walphos family. The new compounds; [H4Os4(CO)10{μ -1,2-W001}], [H4Os4(CO)10{μ -1,2-W002}], [H4Os4(CO)10{μ -1,2-W003}] and [H4Os4(CO)10{μ -1,2-W005}] were characterized, and [H4Os4(CO)10{μ -1,2-W001}] was investigated in its enantioselective catalytic properties in the hydrogenation of tiglic acid.

  4. 14. Sesquiterpene lactones from Eupatorium lasiophtalmum

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiska institutionen

    Author : Daniel Svensson; [2012]
    Keywords : Organisk kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : An investigation of Eupatorium lasiophthalmum yielded fourteen sesquiterpene lactones (1-14) including one new epimer (7) and a revision of the reported stereochemistry of 2 is suggested. One known sesquiterpene (15) and one triterpene (16) with a novel skeleton were found. Two known flavonoids (17-18) were also isolated. READ MORE

  5. 15. Estimating and Testing Risk Approaches: A Technical Analysis using Affine Term Structure Models, Monte Carlo Simulation and GARCH Method

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Nationalekonomiska institutionen

    Author : Daniel Svensson; [2011]
    Keywords : Economics; Econometrics; Value-at-Risk; Monte Carlo Simulation; GARCH Method; Business and Economics;

    Abstract : This paper investigates if the Log-Normal Mean-Reverting Ornstein-Uhlenbeck spot price (LNMROU) and the Vasicek (1977) process can forecast Value-at-Risk (VaR) using the Monte Carlo method. The results from LNMROU are validated against Delta-Normal-GARCH (DNG) and Historical Simulation (HS) which are well known approaches for VaR estimations. READ MORE
