Three Essays On Structural Models, Xinghua Zhou 2018 The University of Western Ontario

Three Essays On Structural Models, Xinghua Zhou

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

My thesis includes three papers on contingent claims valuation of corporate securities using structural models of credit risk. Our study focuses on structural models and their applications in estimating damages in security class actions, option pricing and warrant pricing. Securities class actions typically involve some misrepresentation by a firm that overstates its true value. In securities class actions econometric models are used to assess damages to shareholders. However, studies on measuring damages for debt-holders are limited. My first paper uses a modified Merton framework to measure the impact of misrepresentation on the value of other components (e.g., debt, warrants ...


Algorithmic Trading With Prior Information, Xinyi Cai 2018 Washington University in St. Louis

Algorithmic Trading With Prior Information, Xinyi Cai

Arts & Sciences Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Traders utilize strategies by using a mix of market and limit orders to generate profits. There are different types of traders in the market, some have prior information and can learn from changes in prices to tweak her trading strategy continuously(Informed Traders), some have no prior information but can learn(Uninformed Learners), and some have no prior information and cannot learn(Uninformed Traders). In this thesis. Alvaro C, Sebastian J and Damir K \cite{AL} proposed a model for algorithmic traders to access the impact of dynamic learning in profit and loss in 2014. The traders can employ the ...

Mathematical Modeling Of Fish Populations In Lake Ontario Using Differential Equations, Emily Kralles 2018 The College at Brockport

Mathematical Modeling Of Fish Populations In Lake Ontario Using Differential Equations, Emily Kralles

Senior Honors Theses

The purpose of this research is to use mathematical models to study the connection between the rainbow trout fish population and the lamprey population in Lake Ontario. These species have a parasite/host relationship. The lamprey, a destructive and invasive species, give the rainbow trout scars and wounds that hinder their life spans. I chose to use models that are traditionally used for predator/prey relationships. It is an acceptable method because by definition predation includes parasitism [8]. Besides, mathematical models will only take the most dominant features into account.

The predator/prey model quantifies what happens when the predators ...


A Computational Model Of Team-Based Dynamics In The Workplace: Assessing The Impact Of Incentive-Based Motivation On Productivity, Josef Di Pietrantonio 2018 Duquesne University

A Computational Model Of Team-Based Dynamics In The Workplace: Assessing The Impact Of Incentive-Based Motivation On Productivity, Josef Di Pietrantonio

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Large organizations often divide workers into small teams for the completion of essential tasks. In an effort to maximize the number of tasks completed over time, it is common practice for organizations to hire workers with the highest level of education and experience. However, despite capable workers being hired, the ability of teams to complete tasks may suffer if the workers' individual motivational needs are not satisfied.

To explore the impact of incentive-based motivation on the success of team-based organizations, we developed an agent-based model that stochastically simulates the proficiency of 100 workers with varying abilities and motive profiles to ...

Examples Of Solving The Wave Equation In The Hyperbolic Plane, Cooper Ramsey 2018 Liberty University

Examples Of Solving The Wave Equation In The Hyperbolic Plane, Cooper Ramsey

Senior Honors Theses

The complex numbers have proven themselves immensely useful in physics, mathematics, and engineering. One useful tool of the complex numbers is the method of conformal mapping which is used to solve various problems in physics and engineering that involved Laplace’s equation. Following the work done by Dr. James Cook, the complex numbers are replaced with associative real algebras. This paper focuses on another algebra, the hyperbolic numbers. A solution method like conformal mapping is developed with solutions to the one-dimensional wave equation. Applications of this solution method revolve around engineering and physics problems involving the propagation of waves. To ...


Properties And Convergence Of State-Based Laplacians, Kelsey Wells 2018 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Properties And Convergence Of State-Based Laplacians, Kelsey Wells

Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research Papers in Mathematics

The classical Laplace operator is a vital tool in modeling many physical behaviors, such as elasticity, diffusion and fluid flow. Incorporated in the Laplace operator is the requirement of twice differentiability, which implies continuity that many physical processes lack. In this thesis we introduce a new nonlocal Laplace-type operator, that is capable of dealing with strong discontinuities. Motivated by the state-based peridynamic framework, this new nonlocal Laplacian exhibits double nonlocality through the use of iterated integral operators. The operator introduces additional degrees of flexibility that can allow better representation of physical phenomena at different scales and in materials with different ...


Characterization Of Volcanic Terrains Using Lidar Reflectivity: A Statistical Approach, Michael Barber 2018 Indiana University of Pennsylvania

Characterization Of Volcanic Terrains Using Lidar Reflectivity: A Statistical Approach, Michael Barber

Theses and Dissertations (All)

In recent decades, lidar has revolutionized topographic mapping of the Earth and planets through the use of digital elevation models (DEMs). However, the return amplitudes of the reflected laser pulses, typically collected as part of a lidar dataset, have seldom beenused as a means of identifying and characterizing volcanic surface features such as lava flows, rafted tephra and agglutinate, and pyroclastic deposits consisting of tephra and ashfall. Here, we find an effective process for remotely characterizing volcanic terrains using a simple but rigorous cluster analysis of lidar return amplitudes and DEM data to define the parameters for a self-organizing mapping ...


The Advection-Diffusion Equation And The Enhanced Dissipation Effect For Flows Generated By Hamiltonians, Michael Kumaresan 2018 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

The Advection-Diffusion Equation And The Enhanced Dissipation Effect For Flows Generated By Hamiltonians, Michael Kumaresan

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

We study the Cauchy problem for the advection-diffusion equation when the diffusive parameter is vanishingly small. We consider two cases - when the underlying flow is a shear flow, and when the underlying flow is generated by a Hamiltonian. For the former, we examine the problem on a bounded domain in two spatial variables with Dirichlet boundary conditions. After quantizing the system via the Fourier transform in the first spatial variable, we establish the enhanced-dissipation effect for each mode. For the latter, we allow for non-degenerate critical points and represent the orbits by points on a Reeb graph, with vertices representing ...


Automatic Construction Of Scalable Time-Stepping Methods For Stiff Pdes, Vivian Montiforte 2018 The University of Southern Mississippi

Automatic Construction Of Scalable Time-Stepping Methods For Stiff Pdes, Vivian Montiforte

Master's Theses

Krylov Subspace Spectral (KSS) Methods have been demonstrated to be highly scalable time-stepping methods for stiff nonlinear PDEs. However, ensuring this scalability requires analytic computation of frequency-dependent quadrature nodes from the coefficients of the spatial differential operator. This thesis describes how this process can be automated for various classes of differential operators to facilitate public-domain software implementation.


Classifying Textual Fast Food Restaurant Reviews Quantitatively Using Text Mining And Supervised Machine Learning Algorithms, Lindsey Wright 2018 East Tennessee State University

Classifying Textual Fast Food Restaurant Reviews Quantitatively Using Text Mining And Supervised Machine Learning Algorithms, Lindsey Wright

Undergraduate Honors Theses

Companies continually seek to improve their business model through feedback and customer satisfaction surveys. Social media provides additional opportunities for this advanced exploration into the mind of the customer. By extracting customer feedback from social media platforms, companies may increase the sample size of their feedback and remove bias often found in questionnaires, resulting in better informed decision making. However, simply using personnel to analyze the thousands of relative social media content is financially expensive and time consuming. Thus, our study aims to establish a method to extract business intelligence from social media content by structuralizing opinionated textual data using ...


Harmonic Functions And Harmonic Measure, David McDonald 2018 University of Connecticut

Harmonic Functions And Harmonic Measure, David Mcdonald

Honors Scholar Theses

The purpose of this thesis is to give a brief introduction to the field of harmonic measure. In order to do this we first introduce a few important properties of harmonic functions and show how to find a Green’s function for a given domain. Following this we calculate the harmonic measure for some easy cases and end by examining the connection between harmonic measure and Brownian motion.


Ultra-High Dimensional Statistical Learning, Yanxin Xu 2018 College of William and Mary

Ultra-High Dimensional Statistical Learning, Yanxin Xu

Undergraduate Honors Theses

Advancements in information technology have enabled scientists to collect data of unprecedented size as well as complexity. Nowadays, high-dimensional data commonly arise in diverse fields as biology, engineering, health sciences, and economics. In this project, we consider both linear and non-parametric models with variable selection in the high-dimensional setting by assuming that only a small number of index coefficients influence the conditional mean of the response variable. Both the numerical results and the real data application demonstrate that the proposed approach selects the correct model with a high frequency and estimates the model coefficients accurately even for moderate sample size ...


The Computational Study Of Fly Swarms & Complexity, Austin Bebee 2018 Linfield College

The Computational Study Of Fly Swarms & Complexity, Austin Bebee

Senior Theses

A system is considered complex if it is composed of individual parts that abide by their own set of rules, while the system, as a whole, will produce non-deterministic properties. This prevents the behavior of such systems from being accurately predicted. The motivation for studying complexity spurs from the fact that it is a fundamental aspect of innumerable systems. Among complex systems, fly swarms are relatively simple, but even so they are still not well understood. In this research, several computational models were developed to assist with the understanding of fly swarms. These models were primarily analyzed by using the ...


Extending The Applicability Of The Lagrange Multipliers Method, Ashley Case 2018 The College at Brockport

Extending The Applicability Of The Lagrange Multipliers Method, Ashley Case

Senior Honors Theses

In this work we studied the use of the Lagrange Multipliers Method. We proved that substitutions can result in the ability to use this method when the method had previously failed. We also look at situations where this is not the case, and the method fails to maximize or minimize the function. In such cases, we will discuss what to do from there.
