By Eckhard Platen, David Heath

A framework for monetary industry modeling, the benchmark strategy extends past ordinary threat impartial pricing conception. It allows a unified remedy of portfolio optimization, spinoff pricing, built-in possibility administration and coverage danger modeling. This publication provides the mandatory mathematical instruments, by means of a radical creation to monetary modeling less than the benchmark procedure, explaining numerous quantitative tools for the reasonable pricing and hedging of derivatives.

These can be highly dependent even if they are uncorrelated. This point is often missed in practice. A simple example is given when X1 is N (0, 1) Gaussian distributed and X2 = √12 ((X1 )2 − 1). 47) the correlation is zero. However, both random variables X1 and X2 are strongly dependent. 4 Joint Distributions and Random Vectors 41 Bivariate Gaussian Density Let A denote the transpose of the vector or matrix A. A matrix A is regular if it is invertible. This is the case if its determinant det(A) is not equal to zero.

22) 26 1 Preliminaries from Probability Theory For a random variable X we say that its density is called positively skewed if βX > 0, negatively skewed if βX < 0 and symmetric if βX = 0. 15), the expression p1 (1 − p1 ) (2p1 − 1). 5 in the two-point distribution. 16), has the form ∞ i−λ √ λ βX = i=0 3 1 λi exp{−λ} = √ , i! 24) which means that the corresponding Poisson distribution is positively skewed. 17) that a U (a, b) uniformly distributed random variable X has zero skewness since ⎛ b βX = ⎝ x− a+b 2 (b−a) √ 12 a ⎞3 ⎠ 1 dx = 0.

As previously mentioned, the skewness βX is the third normalized central moment and the kurtosis κX is the fourth normalized central moment. Obviously, the first normalized central moment is zero and the second normalized central moment equals one. Moments provide important information about the given random variable. Note that the higher order moments need not always provide additional information. For example, the Gaussian distribution is completely characterized by its first two moments, its mean µ and variance σ 2 .
