    In this short paper, in order to price occupation-time options, such as (double-barrier) step options and quantile options, we derive various joint distributions of a mixed-exponential jump-diffusion process and its occupation times of intervals. read more...

    In this paper, we investigate Parisian ruin for a L\'evy surplus process with an adaptive premium rate, namely a refracted L\'evy process. More general Parisian boundary-crossing problems with a deterministic implementation delay are also considered. Our main contribution is a generalization of the result in Loeffen et al. (2013) for the probability of Parisian ruin of a standard L\'evy insurance risk process. Despite the more general setup considered here, our main result is as compact and has a similar structure. Examples are provided. read more...

    In the literature, researchers have widely addressed the portfolio optimization problem with various stock price models, and by choosing different kinds of optimization criteria. Models driven by Jump processes seem to provide a flexible class of models which capture statistical and economical properties of market data. In particular, we consider a portfolio optimization problem, without any consumption and transaction cost, where the market consisting of stock prices is modelled by a multi dimensional jump diffusion process with semi-Markov modulated coefficients. We study risk sensitive portfolio optimization on finite time horizon. We address the above mentioned problem by using a probabilistic approach to establish the existence and uniqueness of the classical solution of corresponding Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman (HJB) equation. We also implement a numerical scheme to see the behavior of solutions for different values of initial portfolio wealth, maturity and risk of aversion parameter. read more...

    Market Microstructure is the investigation of the process and protocols that govern the exchange of assets with the objective of reducing frictions that can impede the transfer. In financial markets, where there is an abundance of recorded information, this translates to the study of the dynamic relationships between observed variables, such as price, volume and spread, and hidden constituents, such as transaction costs and volatility, that hold sway over the efficient functioning of the system. read more...

    We consider a singular control problem with regime switching that arises in problems of optimal investment decisions of cash-constrained firms. The value function is proved to be the unique viscosity solution of the associated Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equation. read more...

    In this work we give a comprehensive overview of the time consistency property of dynamic risk and performance measures, with focus on discrete time setup. The two key operational concepts used throughout are the notion of the LM-measure and the notion of the update rule that, we believe, are the key tools for studying the time consistency in a unified framework. read more...

    Despite much scientific evidence, a large fraction of the American public doubts that greenhouse gases are causing global warming. We present a simulation model as a computational test-bed for climate prediction markets. Traders adapt their beliefs about future temperatures based on the profits of other traders in their social network. We simulate two alternative climate futures, in which global temperatures are primarily driven either by carbon dioxide or by solar irradiance. These represent, respectively, the scientific consensus and a hypothesis advanced by prominent skeptics. We conduct sensitivity analyses to determine how a variety of factors describing both the market and the physical climate may affect traders' beliefs about the cause of global climate change. Market participation causes most traders to converge quickly toward believing the "true" climate model, suggesting that a climate market could be useful for building public consensus. read more...
