    Abstract : This thesis consists of three chapters devoted to both empirical and theoretical aspects of option pricing. The first chapter investigates the market for European options on the Swedish OMX index using daily data for the period 1993-2000. READ MORE

  2. 2. Stochastic Modeling for Video Object Tracking and Online Learning: manifolds and particle filters

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Zulfiqar H. Khan; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Bildanalys; Image analysis; Signalbehandling; Signal processing; Visual object tracking; anisotropic mean shift; particle filters; Bayesian tracking; consensus point feature correspondences; online learning of reference object; Riemannian manifold; covariance tracking; Gabor features; Grassmann manifold.;

    Abstract : Classical visual object tracking techniques provide effective methods when parameters of the underlying process lie in a vector space. However, various parameter spaces commonly occurring in visual tracking violate this assumption. READ MORE

  3. 3. Learning for safety: Improvements of Swedish authorities’ toolkits for societal resilience

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Jonas Borell; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]

    Abstract : This thesis suggests improvements of selected parts of the Swedish authorities’ toolkits for societal safety and crisis management; crisis response evaluations, crisis management exercises and organizational risk assessments. The thesis also explores how visualizations of safety culture data can be used to support safety culture development. READ MORE

  4. 4. On the Metric-based Approach to Supervised Concept Learning

    University dissertation from Ronneby : Blekinge Institute of Technology

    Author : Niklas Lavesson; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; classifier evaluation; supervised learning; metric; criteria;

    Abstract : A classifier is a piece of software that is able to categorize objects for which the class is unknown. The task of automatically generating classifiers by generalizing from examples is an important problem in many practical applications. This problem is often referred to as supervised concept learning, and has been shown to be relevant in e.g. READ MORE

  5. 5. Behavior Representation by Growing a Learning Tree

    University dissertation from Linköping, Sweden : Linköping University, Department of Electrical Engineering

    Author : Tomas Landelius; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1993]
    Keywords : Engineering and Technology; Teknik och teknologier; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The work presented in this thesis is based on the basic idea of learning by reinforcement, within the theory of behaviorism. The reason for this choice is the generality of such an approach, especially that the reinforcement learning paradigm allows systems to be designed which can improve their behavior beyond that of their teacher.
