Sammanfattning : The first paper introduces a new simulation technique, called semi Markov chain Monte Carlo, suitable for estimating the expectation of a fixed function over a distribution π, Eπf(χ). Given a Markov chain with stationary distribution p, for example a Markov chain corresponding to a Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithm, an embedded Markov renewal process is used to divide the trajectory into different parts.

Sammanfattning : Rainflow cycles are often used in fatigue analysis of materials for describing the variability of applied loads. Therefore, an important characteristic of a random load process is the intensity of rainflow cycles, also called the expected rainflow matrix (RFM), which can be used for evaluation of the fatigue life.

Sammanfattning : This thesis consists of four empirical studies on financial economics. The first chapter contains a short summary of the thesis. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : In this thesis, nonlinearly perturbed stochastic models in discrete time are considered. We give algorithms for construction of asymptotic expansions with respect to the perturbation parameter for various quantities of interest. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Stochastic simulation is a popular method for computing probabilities or expecta- tions where analytical answers are difficult to derive. It is well known that standard methods of simulation are inefficient for computing rare-event probabilities and there- fore more advanced methods are needed to those problems. LÄS MER
