  2. 2. Predicting Asset Prices with Machine Learning

    University essay from

    Author : Adam Eklund; Valter Trollius; [2020-06-29]
    Keywords : Machine learning; neural networks; OLS regression; asset pricing; financial forecasting; out-of-sample; predictability;

    Abstract : This study examines whether machine learning techniques such as neural networks contain predictability when modeling asset prices and if they can improve on asset pricing prediction compared to traditional OLS-regressions. This is analyzed through measuring and comparing the out-of-sample R2 to find each models’ predictive power. READ MORE

  3. 3. Putting behavioral assays on fish to the test: Are sociality and scototaxis trials relevant in the wild?

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Author : Arno Veenstra; [2020]
    Keywords : Acoustic telemetry; Social network; Sociality; Scototaxis; Migration;

    Abstract : Animal behavior has become a frequently used tool in modern ecology and ecotoxicology, where laboratory behavioral traits are recognized as sensitive endpoints for assessing natural behavior or non-lethal effects of pollutants on animals. Within these research fields, behavioral traits measured in laboratory environments have been used to formulate predictions of ecological consequences that accompany specific behavior. READ MORE

  4. 4. Implied Volatility and Historical Volatility : An Empirical Evidence About The Content of Information And Forecasting Power

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Företagsekonomi; Umeå universitet/Företagsekonomi

    Author : Mohammad Aljaid; Mohammed Diaa Zakaria; [2020]
    Keywords : Implied Volatilty; Mincer–Zarnowitz regression; GARCHModel; Realized Volatility; Predictive Power.;

    Abstract : This study examines whether the implied volatility index can provide further information in forecasting volatility than historical volatility using GARCHfamily models. For this purpose, this researchhas been conducted to forecast volatility in two main markets the United States of America through its wildly used Standard and Poor’s 500 index and its correspondingvolatility index VIX and in Europe through its Euro Stoxx 50 and its correspondingvolatility index VSTOXX.

  5. 5. Benchmarking fission rate simulations through comparison with neutron activation data

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Tillämpad kärnfysik

    Author : Karlsson Peter; [2020]
    Keywords : Neutron activation; Gamma spectroscopy; Fission;

    Abstract : Metal foils were implemented in a measurement of neutron-induced fission at the IGISOL facility in 2016. These foils were activated by a neutron flux during the experiment and measured after the beam was turned off. The radioactive products from the neutron activation were identified in an analysis of γ-ray spectroscopy data. READ MORE
