  2. 2. Risk contribution and its application in asset and risk management for life insurance

    University essay from KTH/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Jesper Sundin; [2016]
    Keywords : Risk contribution; capital allocation; Value-at-Risk; elliptical distri-bution; multivariate log-normal distribution; kernel estimation;

    Abstract : In risk management one important aspect is the allocation of total portfolio risk into its components. This can be done by measuring each components' risk contribution relative to the total risk, taking into account the covariance between components. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modelling Low Dimensional Neural Activity

    University essay from KTH/Beräkningsvetenskap och beräkningsteknik (CST)KTH/Beräkningsbiologi, CB

    Author : Emil Wärnberg; [2016]
    Keywords : neural networks; low dimensional; neural; activity; neural engineering framework; NEF; nef; artificial neural network; ann; dimensionality; log-normal; log; normal; distribution; synaptic; geometric; connectivity;

    Abstract : A number of recent studies have shown that the dimensionality of the neural activity in the cortex is low. However, what network structures are capable of producing such activity is not theoretically well understood. READ MORE

  4. 4. Unsupervised Change Detection Using Multi-Temporal SAR Data : A Case Study of Arctic Sea Ice

    University essay from KTH/Geodesi och geoinformatik

    Author : Linda Fröjse; [2014]
    Keywords : sea ice; the Arctic; Kittler-Illingworth; generalized Gaussian distribution; log-normal distribution; ERS; ENVISAT; SAR; ASAR; havsis; Arktis; Kittler-Illingworth; generaliserad normaldistribution; lognormal distribtion; ERS; ENVISAT; SAR; ASAR;

    Abstract : The extent of Arctic sea ice has decreased over the years and the importance of sea ice monitoring is expected to increase. Remote sensing change detection compares images acquired over the same geographic area at different times in order to identify changes that might have occurred in the area of interest. READ MORE

  5. 5. Empirical evaluation of a Markovian model in a limit order market

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Matematiska institutionen

    Author : Filip Trönnberg; [2012]
    Keywords : Markovian model; limit order book; limit order market; stock; stock market; price dynamics; log-normal; distribution; exponential; Weibull; Markovian queuing system; empirical data; financial assets; trading; trader; high; frequency; trading; order book; order flow; HFT; Joint probability density function; bid queue; ask queue;

    Abstract : A stochastic model for the dynamics of a limit order book is evaluated and tested on empirical data. Arrival of limit, market and cancellation orders are described in terms of a Markovian queuing system with exponentially distributed occurrences. READ MORE
