Functionals of Multidimensional Diffusions with Applications by Jan Baldeaux, Eckhard Platen

By Jan Baldeaux, Eckhard Platen

This examine monograph offers an creation to tractable multidimensional diffusion types, the place transition densities, Laplace transforms, Fourier transforms, primary options or functionals might be got in particular shape. The booklet additionally offers an creation to using Lie symmetry staff equipment for diffusions, which permits to compute a variety of functionals. along with the well known technique on affine diffusions it provides a unique method of affine procedures with purposes in finance. Numerical equipment, together with Monte Carlo and quadrature tools, are mentioned including aiding fabric on stochastic procedures. purposes in finance, for example, on credits threat and credits valuation adjustment are incorporated within the publication. The functionals of multidimensional diffusions analyzed during this publication are major for lots of components of software past finance. The ebook is aimed toward a large readership, and develops an intuitive and rigorous figuring out of the maths underlying the derivation of particular formulation for functionals of multidimensional diffusions.​
