From the mathematical perspective considered in this tutorial, risk management is a procedure for shaping a risk distribution. Popular functions managing risk are valueat-risk (VaR) and conditional value-at-risk (CVaR). The problem of choice between VaR and CVaR, especially in financial risk management, has been quite popular in academic literature. Reasons affecting the choice between VaR and CVaR are based on the differences in mathematical properties, stability of statistical estimation… Expand
