Parameter estimation in merton jump diffusion model

Özdemir, Tuğcan Adem
Over the years, jump diffusion models become more and more important. They areused for many purposes in several branches such as economics, biology, chemistry,physics, and social sciences. The reason for prevalent usage of these jump modelsis that they capture stochastic movements and they are sensitive to jump points. It ispossible to measure sudden decreases/increases caused by some reasons such as wars,natural disasters, market crashes or some dramatic news, by jump diffusion models.Recently, US Dollar to Turkish Lira exchange rate has showed dramatic increases/de-creases. It is very difficult to model this exchange rate data with classical modelingmethods. In this thesis, we try to model this data with Merton model which is amongthe well-known jump diffusion models. To obtain true parameter estimation algo-rithm, we simulate a data by using Merton structure. The values of parameters arefound with Maximum Likelihood Estimation (MLE). The initial parameter values insimulated data and the estimated parameter values are compared to control the pa-rameter estimation is true or not. Also, the values of Euler-Maruyama numerical ap-proximation method and analytical solution values are checked whether convergence is good or not. After the true parameter estimation algorithm is found, US Dollarto Turkish Lira exchange rate data is used. This data is between date of 01.02.2019and21.06.2019. By using this data, the parameter estimation is made and predictionis made for between date of23.06.2019and02.07.2019for both Merton Jump Dif-fusion model and Black-Scholes model. Finally, the fitting and forecasting accuracyperformances of them are compared.


Fragility analysis of flat-slab structures
Erberik, Murat Altuğ (2004-06-01)
Flat-slab RC buildings exhibit several advantages over conventional moment-resisting frames. However, the structural effectiveness of flat-slab construction is hindered by its alleged inferior performance under earthquake loading. Although flat-slab systems are widely used in earthquake prone regions of the world, fragility curves for this type of construction are not available in the literature. This study focuses on the derivation of such fragility curves using medium-rise flat-slab buildings with masonry...
Functional Impulses in Exact Stochastic Simulation
Altıntan, Derya; Purutçuoğlu Gazi, Vilda; Uğur, Ömür (2015-08-20)
Jumps which are observed in many population models give rise to fluctuations in the dynamics of systems. Deterministic model which is based on the Impulsive Differential Equations (IDEs) considers these jumps as impulses and defines the dynamics of the system between successive jump times with the Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs). From our previous studies, we have proposed a model which is the complement of IDEs in the sense that both studies consider the jumps as impulses. The main difference betwee...
Optimal posture control for a 7 DOF haptic device based on power minimization
Baser, Ozgur; Konukseven, Erhan İlhan; Balkan, Raif Tuna (2008-06-13)
The aim of this study is to put forward potential advantages of redundant haptic devices. The use of redundancy in haptic devices basically piovides a larger workspace without changing kinematics parameters such as joint variables, joint offsets, effective link lengths and twist angles. Besides an increase in the workspace, redundant manipulators allow appropriate posture selection for different purposes, such as singularity avoidance, obstacle avoidance, inertia minimization, power minimization. These purp...
Nonlinear 3D Modeling and Vibration Analysis of Horizontal Drum Type Washing Machines
Baykal, Cem; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Yazıcıoğlu, Yiğit (2020-01-01)
In this study, a nonlinear 3-D mathematical model for horizontal drum type washing machines is developed considering rotating unbalance type excitation. Nonlinear differential equations of motion are converted into a set of nonlinear algebraic equations by using Harmonic Balance Method (HBM). The resulting nonlinear algebraic equations are solved by using Newton’s method with arc-length continuation. Several case studies are performed in order to observe the effects of orientation angles of springs and damp...
Fuzzy Decision Fusion for Single Target Classification in Wireless Sensor Networks
Gok, Sercan; Yazıcı, Adnan; Coşar, Ahmet; George, Roy (2010-07-23)
With the advances in technology, low cost and low footprint sensors are being used more and more commonly. Especially for military applications wireless sensor networks (WSN) have become an attractive solution as they have great use for avoiding deadly danger in combat. For military applications, classification of a target in a battlefield plays an important role. A wireless sensor node has the ability to sense the raw signal data in battlefield, extract the feature vectors from sensed signal and produce a ...
