  • Stochastic Optimization Algorithms have become essential tools in solving a wide range of difficult and critical optimization problems. Such methods are able to find the optimum solution of a problem with uncertain elements or to algorithmically incorporate uncertainty to solve a deterministic problem. They even succeed in “fighting uncertainty with uncertainty”. This book discusses theoretical aspects of many such algorithms and covers their application in various scientific fields

  • Particle swarm optimization (PSO) is a population based stochastic optimization technique influenced by the social behavior of bird flocking or fish schooling.PSO shares many similarities with evolutionary computation techniques such as Genetic Algorithms (GA). The system is initialized with a population of random solutions and searches for optima by updating generations.

  • Stochastic Optimality Theory (Boersma, 1997) is a widely-used model in linguistics that did not have a theoretically sound learning method previously. In this paper, a Markov chain Monte-Carlo method is proposed for learning Stochastic OT Grammars. Following a Bayesian framework, the goal is finding the posterior distribution of the grammar given the relative frequencies of input-output pairs. The Data Augmentation algorithm allows one to simulate a joint posterior distribution by iterating two conditional sampling steps. ...

  • Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) is the best example of how studies aimed at understanding and modeling the behavior of ants and other social insects can provide inspiration for the development of computational algorithms for the solution of difficult mathematical problems. Introduced by Marco Dorigo in his PhD thesis (1992) and initially applied to the travelling salesman problem, the ACO field has experienced a tremendous growth, standing today as an important nature-inspired stochastic metaheuristic for hard optimization problems....

  • The purpose of this study was to investigate the operation of the Hoabinh reservoir in the Red River Basin of Vietnam, and assess the room for its improvement by application of system analysis and optimal control techniques. The study aimed at establishing a foundation for further research on inter-reservoir regulation of the Basin. Finally, this study provided a testing ground for developing and comparing dierent reservoir optimization methods.

  • We propose WIDL-expressions as a flexible formalism that facilitates the integration of a generic sentence realization system within end-to-end language processing applications. WIDL-expressions represent compactly probability distributions over finite sets of candidate realizations, and have optimal algorithms for realization via interpolation with language model probability distributions. We show the effectiveness of a WIDL-based NLG system in two sentence realization tasks: automatic translation and headline generation. ...

  • This book presents some of the main ideas of game theory. It is designed to serve as a textbook for a one-semester graduate course consisting of about 28 meetings each of 90 minutes. The topics that we cover are those that we personally would include in such a one-semester course. We do not pretend to provide a complete reference book on game theory and do not necessarily regard the topics that we exclude as unimportant. Our selection inevitably reflects our own preferences and interests.

  • This book presents and develops major numerical methods currently used for solving problems arising in quantitative finance. Our presentation splits into two parts. Part I is methodological, and offers a comprehensive toolkit on numerical methods and algorithms. This includes Monte Carlo simulation, numerical schemes for partial differential equations, stochastic optimization in discrete time, copula functions, transform-based methods and quadrature techniques. Part II is practical, and features a number of self-contained cases.

  • Mastering the concepts of probability can cast new light on situations in which randomness and chance appear to rule. With an emphasis on why probability works and how it can be applied, Henk Tijms introduces the reader to the world of probability in an informal way. Lotteries and casino games provide a natural source of motivation, and he carefully discusses these with many worked examples to illustrate the key concepts from probability theory. Henk Tijms has been a professor in Operations Research at the Vrije University in Amsterdam since 1976.

  • In this chapter, we study the mathematical structure of a simple one-period model of a financial market. We consider a finite number of assets. Their initial prices at time t = 0 are known, their future prices at time t = 1 are described as random variables on some probability space. Trading takes place at time t = 0. Already in this simple model, some basic principles of mathematical finance appear very clearly. In Section 1.2, we single out those models which satisfy a condition of market efficiency: There are no trading opportunities which yield a profit without any downside risk.

  • Stochastic Calculus of Variations (or Malliavin Calculus) consists, in brief, in constructing and exploiting natural differentiable structures on abstract probability spaces; in other words, Stochastic Calculus of Variations proceeds from a merging of differential calculus and probability theory. As optimization under a random environment is at the heart of mathematical finance, and as differential calculus is of paramount importance for the search of extrema, it is not surprising that Stochastic Calculus of Variations appears in mathematical finance.

My great thanks go to Martino Bardi, who took careful notes, saved them all these years and recently mailed them to me. Faye Yeager typed up his notes into a first draft of these lectures as they now appear.

  • Continuous-time modeling in finance, though introduced by Louis Bachelier's 1900 thesis on the theory of speculation, really started with Merton's seminal work in the 1970s. Since then, the continuous-time paradigm has proved to be an immensely useful tool in finance and more generally economics. Continuous-time models are widely used to study issues that include the decision to optimally consume, save, and invest, portfolio choice under a variety of constraints, contingent claim pricing, capital accumulation, resource extraction, game theory, and more recently contract theory....

  • This paper develops theory missing in the sizeable literature that uses data envelopment analysis to construct return : risk ratios for investment funds. It explores the production possibility set of the investment funds to identify an appropriate form of returns to scale. It discusses what risk and return measures can justifiably be combined and how to deal with negative risks, and identifies suitable sets of measures. It identifies the problems of failing to deal with diversification and develops an iterative approximation procedure to deal with it.

  • Modern game theory has evolved enormously since its inception in the 1920s in the works of Borel and von Neumann. The branch of game theory known as dynamic games descended from the pioneering work on differential games by R. Isaacs, L. S. Pontryagin and his school, and from seminal papers on extensive form games by Kuhn and on stochastic games by Shapley.
