  1. 1. LEAST -SQUARE MONTE CARLO BASED OPTION PRICING OF EUROPEAN AND BERMUDAN STOCK INDEX OPTIONS

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Oscar Brink Bolin; Joel Ahnvik; [2022]
    Keywords : Option; Monte Carlo *; Least-square *; Black-Scholes; Merton; Heston; Bates; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : On the financial markets, there are a large number of financial instruments. Two of these instruments is the European and Bermudan option, where the Bermudan option can be seen as a discrete version of the American option. Meaning, if one can price the Bermudan option one can also estimate the price of an American option. READ MORE

  2. 2. Preoperative prediction of sentinel nodal status using mammography images

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Malin Hjärtström; Maren Høibø; [2021]
    Keywords : Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in Sweden, accounting for approximately 30 % of the cancer cases. The overall prognosis is good, but worsens if the cancer metastasizes from the primary tumor. READ MORE

  3. 3. Scenario Dose Calculation for Robust Optimization in Proton Therapy Treatment Planning

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematik LTH

    Author : Johan Sundström; [2021]
    Keywords : cancer; radiation therapy; proton therapy; treatment planning; robust optimization; dose calculation algorithms; scenarios; patient setup; range error; organ motion; pencil beam scanning; computational efficiency; range-corrected dose-mapping; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : Robust optimization plays a vital role in proton therapy treatment planning. A monoenergetic beam of protons has a finite range and delivers most of its dose at some specific depth in the patient. This allows the design of treatments that mainly damage the tumor and not any surrounding tissue. READ MORE

  4. 4. Classification of EEG Data Using Convolutional Neural Networks and the Scaled Reassigned Spectrogram

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Karin Pagels; [2021]
    Keywords : Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : Electroencephalography (EEG) is a medical technique for measuring brain activity through several channels connected to the scalp. Interpreting EEG data is a difficult problem because of the large amount of noise contained in the data. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cyclotomic Fields and Fermat's Last Theorem

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematik LTH; Lunds universitet/Matematik (naturvetenskapliga fakulteten)

    Author : Samuel Runyeon Odeberg; [2021]
    Keywords : pure mathematics; number theory; algebra; algebraic number theory; cyclotomic fields; cyclotomic rings; cycltomic integers; Fermat s last theorem; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : Number theory is in a sense among the oldest disciplines of mathematics. A running theme is that many number theoretic problems are very easy to state and understand. However, actually solving these problems often requires much work or some very clever trick. READ MORE
