  1. 1. Some Extensions of Fractional Ornstein-Uhlenbeck Model Arbitrage and Other Applications

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Statistics, Stockholm University

    Author : José Igor Morlanes; Stockholms universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; fractional Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process; insider information; simulation embedding method; jump times; least-squares estimator; likelihood process; Ito calculus; Malliavin calculus; stochastic calculus; statistik; Statistics;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis endeavors to extend probability and statistical models using stochastic differential equations. The described models capture essential features from data that are not explained by classical diffusion models driven by Brownian motion.New results obtained by the author are presented in five articles.

  2. 2. The Finite Element Method for Fractional Order Viscoelasticity and the Stochastic Wave Equation

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology and University of Gothenburg

    Author : Fardin Saedpanah; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; finite element method; continuous Galerkin method; linear viscoelasticity; fractional calculus; fractional order viscoelasticity; weakly singular kernel; stability; a priori error estimate; a posteriori error estimate; stochastic wave equation; additive noise; Wiener process; strong convergence.;

    Abstract : This thesis can be considered as two parts. In the first part a hyperbolic type integro-differential equation with weakly singular kernel is considered, which is a model for dynamic fractional order viscoelasticity. In the second part, the finite element approximation of the linear stochastic wave equation is studied. READ MORE

  3. 3. Dynamic analyses of structures with applied rubber

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology and University of Gothenburg

    Author : Magnus Alvelid; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Viscoelasticity; Series expansion; Finite; Fractional calculus; Optimization;

    Abstract : The aim with the present thesis has been to develop efficient, practical and accuratemethods in order to model rubber in dynamic analyses, with emphasis on passive constrainedlayer damping materials. A fractional order viscoelastic constitutive model ismapped onto experimental data from a measurement standard using a vibrating beamtechnique. READ MORE

  4. 4. Parabolic equations with low regularity

    University dissertation from Department of Mathematics, Lund University

    Author : Magnus Fontes; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1996]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Matematik; Mathematics; Galerkin approximation.; low regularity; variational method; Hilbert transformation; fractional calculus; parabolic equations; quasilinear;

    Abstract : In this work we study a variational method for treating parabolic equations that yields new results for non-linear equations with low regularity on source and boundary data. We treat mainly strongly parabolic quasilinear equations and systems in divergence form. READ MORE
