  • Title: On a positivity preserving numerical scheme for jump-extended CIR process: the alpha-stable case
  • Abstract:
​We propose a positivity preserving implicit Euler-Maruyama scheme for a jump-extended Cox-Ingersoll-Ross (CIR) process where the jumps are governed by compensated spectrally positive alpha-stable process for alpha belonging to (1,2). Different to the existing positivity preserving numerical schemes for jump-extended CIR or CEV models, the model considered here has infinite activity jumps. We calculate, in this specific model, the strong rate of convergence and give some numerical illustrations. Jump extended models of this type were initially studied in the context of branching processes and was recently introduced to the financial mathematics literature to model sovereign interest rates, power and energy markets.

  • Title: Some interesting insurance work: Distribution Choice in Non-life Insurance Risk Model with Statistical Learning Method & Optimal Insurance under Third Degree Risk
(Xiaoshan Su emlyon business school)
  • Abstract: 
​The former work treats a distribution selection problem as a classification problem for claim frequency and claim severity in non-life insurance risk model, and trains machine learning classifier to predict most likely distribution for real data. The training of classifier uses a simulation training sample that is generated under a two-level hierarchical structure. The first level is to generate enough pieces of parameter sets for all competitive distributions, and for each piece of parameter set in each distribution, the second level is to simulate a large size of sample and compute the respective values of descriptive statistic variables, which forms a record of training sample by combination with the corresponding distribution label. Then, the cross-validation method compares the performance of commonly used classifiers, including decision tree, k-nearest neighbour classifier, neural network, support vector classifier, bagging, boosting and random forest, etc. Both of numerical experiments and empirical studies show decision tree and bagging, boosting and random forest that use decision tree as weak learners, perform better than other classifiers and also than traditional fitting measures. The latter work investigates the optimal insurance design of considering a wide coverage of insured including risk-averter and risk-lovers, by assuming that the insured is third degree risk averse. Under expected value premium principle, we show that the optimal insurance form is a change-loss insurance or a dual change-loss insurance, which depends on the coefficient-variance of the ceded loss. The insurer with a mean-variance preference has a strong motive to issue these two kinds of insurance contracts.

  • Title: Pricing Defaultable Participating Contracts with Regime Switching and Jump Risk
(Xiaoshan Su emlyon business school Joint work with Professor Olivier Le Courtois and Professor Francois Quittard Pinon)
  • Abstract:
This paper provides a regime switching jump diffusion framework for pricing defaultable participating life insurance contracts. This framework assumes the value of underlying asset portfolio evolves as a geometric regime switching double exponential jump diffusion and default happens when its value crosses a level with regard to initial policyholder premium. The flexible regime switching double exponential jump diffusion model gives the semi-closed form formula for the price of the life insurance contract and the price can be obtained by further computation using numerical two-sided Laplace inversion method. The Euler summation technique is used to speed up the convergence rate of two-dimensional Laplace inversion method in Cai and Shi (2015) and the ”worst state” is defined to help control the discretion and truncation errors of numerical two-sided Laplace inversion in the regime switching case. An illustration concludes the paper and addresses the respective impacts of different risk sources on the price of the life insurance contracts.

  • Title: Structural Pricing of CoCos and Deposit Insurance with Regime Switching and Jumps
(Xiaoshan Su emlyon business school Joint work with Professor Olivier Le Courtois)
  • Abstract:
In this article, we construct a structural model with jumps and regime switching to price banks’ contingent convertible debt (CoCos) and deposit insurance. We use an Esscher transform that is applicable to regime switching double exponential jump diffusions to move from the historical world to the risk-neutral world. Further, we define and implement a matrix Wiener-Hopf factorization associated with the latter processes, allowing us to price the various components of a bank’s balance sheet. Thus, we obtain valuation formulas for the bank’s equity, debt, deposits, CoCos, and deposit insurance. We also show in an illustration the respective effects of the jump risk and of regime switching on the values of all of a bank’s balance sheet components.

日時:        2018年7月3日(火) 15:00~16:00

タイトル:   Recent progress in the Delzant classification of almost-toric systems

講演者:    Christophe Wacheux (IBS Center for Geometry and Physics, POSTECH)

アブストラクト:
Almost-toric systems are a special class of integrable Hamiltonian systems with properties of almost-periodicity of the flow (all but one component of the moment map yield a circle action), and restriction on the nature of the singularities (only elliptic and focus-focus singularities are authorized). 
In this talk, I will explain the classification program for these systems that started almost ten years ago, and the progress that have been made until very recently.
