Large portfolio losses by Amir Dembo ( Book )
10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: This paper provide a large-deviations approximation of the tail distribution of total financial losses on a portfolio consisting of many positions. Applications include the total default losses on a bank portfolio, or the total claims against an insurer. The results may be useful in allocating exposure limits, and in allocating risk capital across different lines of business. Assuming that, for a given total loss, the distress caused by the loss is larger if the loss occurs within a smaller time period, we provide a large-deviations estimate of the likelihood that there will exist a sub-period of the future planning period during which a total loss of the critical severity occurs. Under conditions, this calculation is reduced to the calculation of the likelihood of the same sized loss over a fixed initial time interval whose length is a property of the portfolio and the critical loss level
Large deviations and applications : the finite dimensional case by Amir Dembo ( Book )
4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
These notes, which form the first chapter of a forthcoming book, are intended to serve as lecture notes on the topic of large deviations and applications for students whose background and interests are in applications which involve finite dimensional spaces. Although narrow in their scope, these notes present a good deal of the methods available for more general situations. A glaring omission is the method of sub-additivity, which will be discussed in another chapter in the book. Another deficiency of these notes is the sketchy bibliography and historical notes. We hope to correct this in the book
Maximum a-posteriori estimation of random fields : elliptic Gaussian fields observed via a noisy channel by Amir Dembo ( Book )
2 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An extension of the "prior density for path" (Onsager-Machlup functional) is defined and shown to exist for Gaussian fields generated by solutions of elliptic Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) driven by white noise. This functional is then used to define and solve the MAP estimation of such fields observed via nonlinear noisy sensors. Existence results and a representation of the estimator are derived for this model

Competing particle systems and their applications by Mykhaylo Shkolnikov ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The following dissertation studies several classes of competing particle systems, which are of importance in statistical physics and mathematical finance. Two main examples are systems which go by the names rank-based market models and volatility-stabilized market models in stochastic portfolio theory. Motivated by the applications, we analyze the behavior of the ordered particles, the shape of the invariant distributions for the processes of spacings between consecutive particles, the global behavior of the particle systems as the number of particles becomes large, as well as the corresponding systems of infinitely many particles
Bounds on the symmetric binary cut-off rate for dispersive gaussian channels by Shlomo Shamai ( Book )

Permutations with interval restrictions by Olena Bormashenko ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This thesis studies the problem of the random transposition walk on permutations with interval restrictions. The mixing time of this Markov chain is explored, and a number of different cases are considered. For the case of bounded interval restrictions, a polynomial bound for the mixing time is achieved. For a specific example of bounded interval restrictions called Fibonacci permutations, the correct order of the mixing time is derived. An example of a family of interval restriction matrices for which the random walk mixes in exponential time is provided, showing that the walk in general does not mix in polynomial time. The case of one-sided interval restrictions is also studied, and cut-off is shown for a large class of one-sided interval restriction matrices. Furthermore, examples are provided in which chi-squared cut-off occurs, while total variation mixing occurs significantly earlier without cut-off. Finally, a coupling argument showing the correct order mixing time for the random transposition walk on the whole symmetric group is presented. This is achieved via projection to conjugacy classes and then a path coupling argument

Mixing time of Markov chains on finite and compact lie groups by Yunjiang Jiang ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This thesis studies the mixing time of three Markov chains on non-abelian groups. The first is a Metropolis Markov chain on the symmetric groups, initially introduced by Hanlon and Diaconis, and the last two are random walks on the special orthogonal groups, known as Rosenthal's walk and Kac's walk respectively. Using input from representation theory and symmetric function theory, it is shown that cut-off phenomena occur under total variation distance for the Hanlon-Diaconis chain and Rosenthal's walk. For the Kac random walk, a combination of functional-analytic and probabilistic techniques are used to establish the first polynomial order upper bound for its mixing time
