  1. 1. Numerical analysis for random processes and fields and related design problems

    Författare :Konrad Abramowicz; Oleg Seleznjev; Krzysztof Podgórski; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; stochastic processes; random fields; approximation; numerical integration; Hermite splines; piecewise linear interpolator; local stationarity; point singularity; stratified Monte Carlo quadrature; Asian option; Monte Carlo pricing method; Lévy market models; Mathematical statistics; Matematisk statistik; Mathematical Statistics; matematisk statistik;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis, we study numerical analysis for random processes and fields. We investigate the behavior of the approximation accuracy for specific linear methods based on a finite number of observations. Furthermore, we propose techniques for optimizing performance of the methods for particular classes of random functions. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Accurate Finite Difference Methods for Option Pricing

    Författare :Jonas Persson; Lina von Sydow; Per Lötstedt; Johan Tysk; Jari Toivanen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Finite differences; Option pricing; Adaptive methods; Numerical Analysis; Numerisk analys;

    Sammanfattning : Stock options are priced numerically using space- and time-adaptive finite difference methods. European options on one and several underlying assets are considered. These are priced with adaptive numerical algorithms including a second order method and a more accurate method. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Essays in Quantitative Finance

    Författare :Patrik Karlsson; Nationalekonomiska institutionen; []

    Sammanfattning : This thesis contributes to the quantitative finance literature and consists of four research papers.Paper 1. This paper constructs a hybrid commodity interest rate market model with a stochastic local volatility function that allows the model to simultaneously fit the implied volatility of commodity and interest rate options.

  4. 4. Modelling Weather Dynamics for Weather Derivatives Pricing

    Författare :Emanuel Evarest Sinkwembe; Martin Singull; Xiangfeng Yang; Fredrik Berntsson; Erik Lindström; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis focuses on developing an appropriate stochastic model for temperature dynamics as a means of pricing weather derivative contracts based on temperature. There are various methods for pricing weather derivatives ranging from simple one like historical burn analysis, which does not involve modeling the underlying weather variable to complex ones that require Monte Carlo simulations to achieve explicit weather derivatives contract prices, particularly the daily average temperature (DAT) dynamics models.
