Figures and Tables from this paper

Copulas and dependence measurement

Important properties as well as a number of examples are discussed, including Archimedean copulas and the Marshall-Olkin copula, a general tool for assessing the dependence structure of random variables.

The Fourier Copula: Theory & Applications

A new parametric copula family based on Fourier expansions and flexible enough to describe arbitrary dependence structures is introduced and its ability to transform a flexible nonparametric density estimate into a robust parametric model is distinguished.

Transformations of Copulas and Measures of Concordance

A group of transformations mapping the collection of all copulas into itself generates a variety of new copulas; this is of particular interest with regard to asymmetric copulas and may also be useful for proving that certain real functions on the unit square are indeed copulas.

A review of the use of copulas in credit derivatives and the development of alternative methodologies

This dissertation will examine the theory surrounding copulas and their usefulness when applied to modelling credit derivatives, looking at various copulas that have been suggested for the use inCredit derivatives, such as the Gaussian copula, the t-copula and the Archimedean family of copulas.

Valuation of projects with minimum revenue guarantees: A Gaussian copula–based simulation approach

A numerical simulation technique to perform valuations of infrastructure projects with minimum revenue guarantees that offers two important advantages: it is easy to implement and it makes no restrictive assumptions regarding the evolution of the cash flows over time.

Selected Methods for non-Gaussian Data Analysis

This manuscript focuses on the analysis of non-Gaussian distributed data, and the use of higher order multivariate cumulants in computer science is inspired by financial data analysis, especially by the safe investment portfolio evaluation.

Developing a Wide Easy-to-Generate Class of Bivariate Copulas

A wide class of bivariate copulas is constructed in which bivariate random vector generation can be performed easily and two invariant correlation measures and some insights in their application are presented.

Modeling Document Networks with Tree-Averaged Copula Regularization

This paper introduces a new tool, called copula, to separately model the documents and links, so that different copula functions can be applied to capture different correlation patterns.

Copula methods in finance

The author examines the implications of Sklar's theorem in financial applications: toward a non-Black-Scholes world for derivatives pricing, Hedging and Risk Management and the application of VaR bounds to copulas.

An Introduction to Copulas

This book discusses the fundamental properties of copulas and some of their primary applications, which include the study of dependence and measures of association, and the construction of families of bivariate distributions.

Quantitative Risk Management: Concepts, Techniques, and Tools

Because the text uses Excel exclusively, students entering the job market or applying for graduate school cannot claim knowledge of a statistical package—a potentially marketable skill.

Couples coping with a myocardial infarction: a contextual perspective on wives' distress.

Results suggest the need to acknowledge the limitations on adaptation imposed by health and the health care system and there may be tradeoffs between preserving one's own well-being and contributing to a partner's efficacy.
