Spot power prices are volatile and since electricity cannot be economically stored, familiar arbitrage-based methods are not applicable for pricing power derivative contracts. This paper presents an equilibrium model implying that the forward power price is a downward biased predictor of the future spot price if expected power demand is low and demand risk(More)
The <italic>Constrained Matrix</italic> problem is a core problem in numerous applications in the social and economic sciences, including: the estimation of input-output tables, trade tables, and social/national accounts, the projection of migration flows over space and time, the treatment of census data, the analysis of political voting patterns, and the(More)
In this paper we introduce a general parallelizable computational method for solving a wide spectrum of constrained matrix problems. The constrained matrix problem is a core problem in numerous applications in economics. These include the estimation of input/output tables, trade tables, and social/national accounts, and the projection of migration flows(More)
Motivated by risk management problems with barrier options, we propose a flexible modification of the standard knockout and knock-in provisions and introduce a family of path-dependent options: step options. They are parametrized by a finite knockout (knock-in) rate, ρ. For a down-and-out step option, its payoff at expiration is defined as the payoff of an(More)
