  1. 1. Entropy, information theory and spatial input-output analysis

    Author : David F. Batten; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Commodity flows; dynamic analysis; entropy; information theory; input-output analysis; probability distributions; regional and interregional modelling;

    Abstract : Interindustry transactions recorded at a macro level are simply summations of commodity shipment decisions taken at a micro level. The resulting statistical problem is to obtain minimally biased estimates of commodity flow distributions at the disaggregated level, given various forms of aggregated information. READ MORE

  2. 2. On Robust Distributed Control of Transportation Networks

    Author : Gustav Nilsson; Institutionen för reglerteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Traffic Signal Control; Distributed Control; Routing; Transportation Networks; Network Flows;

    Abstract : With the ever-growing traffic demands, the transportation networks are getting more and more congested. While expanding these networks with more roads is both costly and in many cities not even feasible, the rapid development of new sensing and communication techniques has made it possible to perform control of transportation networks in real-time.

    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Option pricing; approximation; stochastic volatility; implied volatility; perturbation; Malliavin calculus; commodities; swaption; swap; HJM model;

    Abstract : This PhD thesis consists of three separate papers. The common theme is methods to calculate analytical approximations for prices of different contingent claims under various model assumptions. The first two papers deals with approximations of standard European options in stochastic volatility models. READ MORE
