On three filtering problems arising in mathematical finance

  title={On three filtering problems arising in mathematical finance},
  author={Damiano Brigo and Bernard Hanzon},
  journal={arXiv: Computational Finance},
Three situations in which filtering theory is used in mathematical finance are illustrated at different levels of detail. The three problems originate from the following different works: 1) On estimating the stochastic volatility model from observed bilateral exchange rate news, by R. Mahieu, and P. Schotman; 2) A state space approach to estimate multi-factors CIR models of the term structure of interest rates, by A.L.J. Geyer, and S. Pichler; 3) Risk-minimizing hedging strategies under partial…

Time-Series Heston Model Calibration Using a Trinomial Tree
In this work a trinomial tree representing the Heston model variance process is used to estimate the parameters for the Heston stochastic volatility model using historical daily observations of the


An empirical application of stochastic volatility models
This paper studies the empirical performance of stochastic volatility models for twenty years of weekly exchange rate data for four major currencies. We concentrate on the effects of the distribution
An Introduction to Nonlinear Filtering
In this paper we provide an introduction to nonlinear filtering from two points of view: the innovations approach and the approach based upon an unnormalized conditional density. The filtering
Mean-variance hedging of options on stocks with Markov volatilities
We consider the problem of hedging an European call option for a diffusion model where drift and volatility are functions of a Markov jump process. The market is thus incomplete implying that perfect
We construct risk-minimizing hedging strategies in the case where there are restrictions on the available information. the underlying price process is a "d"-dimensional F-martingale, and strategies
Bayesian Analysis of Stochastic Volatility Models
New techniques for the analysis of stochastic volatility models in which the logarithm of conditional variance follows an autoregressive model are developed. A cyclic Metropolis algorithm is used to
Risk Minimizing Hedging Strategies Under Partial Observation
We use stochastic filtering techniques to solve the hedging problem in a financial market, where the price of the underlying risky asset may not be accessible to full observation and evolves
Stochastic Processes and Filtering Theory
This book presents a unified treatment of linear and nonlinear filtering theory for engineers, with sufficient emphasis on applications to enable the reader to use the theory. The need for this book

A State-Space Approach to Estimate and Test Multifactor Cox-Ingersoll-Ross Models of the Term Structure
The objective of this paper is to estimate and test multifactor versions of the Cox-Ingersoll-Ross (CIR) model of the nominal term structure of interest rates. The proposed state-space approach
