In order to avoid destructive results of financial bubbles which affect the entire economy, it is important to develop an early-warning signalling. By using optimization-supported tools, we introduce a new method for an early-warning signalling which approaches the bubble concept geometrically by determining and evaluating ellipsoids. We generate a volume-based index via minimum-volume covering ellipsoid clustering method, and to visualize these ellipsoids, we utilize Radon transform from the theory of the Inverse Problems. The analyses were conducted for US, Japan and China stock markets. In our study, we observe that when the bubble-burst time approaches, the volumes of the ellipsoids gradually decrease and, correspondingly, the figures obtained by Radon transform become more "brilliant", i.e., more strongly warning.

Early warning on stock market bubbles via ellipsoidal clustering and inverse problems
Kürüm, Efsun; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm; İyigün, Cem; Department of Financial Mathematics (2014)
When a financial bubble bursts, not only a large number of people suffer directly in society, but it also affects the entire economy. Therefore, it is important to develop an early warning using mathematics-supported tools that aims at a detection of bubbles. We introduce a new method which approaches the bubble concept geometrically by determining and evaluating ellipsoids. In fact, we generate a volume-based index via minimum-volume covering ellipsoid clustering method, and in order to visualize these ell...
Memorandum on a new financial architecture and new regulations

The financial crisis is global and is deeply rooted in a decade-long misuse of the financial market for rent-seeking. The financial industry has largely abandoned its role as a service industry, supposedly charging reasonable fees for the services of spreading risk and allocating capital and credit. Instead it provides a market for corporate control –mergers and acquisitions– and a casino for betting on or hedging practically any kind of risk –the derivatives market–.
Optical Fiber Technology to Monitor Slope Movement
Arslan Kelam, Arzu; Mert, Eker Arif; Akgün, Haluk (2014-09-19)
Recently, awareness about hazards caused by landslides and the importance given to the concept of risk management has been continuously increasing. As a consequence, early warning systems have gained much more importance in terms of risk management. Different instrumentation techniques such as inclinometers, tilt meters, extensometers and ground based LIDAR systems have been used to monitor landslides and/or slopes. All these techniques have their own advantages and disadvantages, but the optical fiber syst...
Managing financial instability in emerging markets: A Keynesian perspective
Akyüz, Yılmaz (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (Ankara, Turkey), 2008-6)
The Keynesian analysis of financial instability as developed by Hyman Minsky provides considerable insights into understanding the nature and dynamics of boom-bust cycles driven by international capital flows in emerging markets. Its main policy conclusion that financial control rather than macroeconomic policy holds the key to financial stability is equally valid. There is, however, need to develop a new approach to financial control and place greater emphasis on managing capital inflows than has hitherto ...
