Thursday, October 30, 2014, 11:00 am, ENG 210
Dr. Pablo Olivares, Department of Mathematics, Ryerson University
speaks on Pricing Basket Contracts by Polynomial Approximations and Discontinuous Models
Abstract: Some results about pricing basket contracts such as spreads and exchange options considering approximation techniques based on Bernstein, Chebyshev and Taylor polynomials. The dynamic of the underlying assets is driven by some classes of Levy models with finite and infinity activity, and stochastic covariance models with Inverse Gaussian subordinators as background noise.
