Weather Derivatives: Modeling and Pricing Weather-Related by Antonis Alexandridis K., Achilleas D. Zapranis

By Antonis Alexandridis K., Achilleas D. Zapranis

​Weather derivatives are monetary tools that may be utilized by corporations or members as a part of a threat administration technique to reduce danger linked to adversarial or unforeseen climatic conditions. simply as conventional contingent claims, a climate by-product has an underlying degree, equivalent to: rainfall, wind, snow or temperature.  approximately $1 trillion of the U.S. economic system is without delay uncovered to weather-related risk.  extra accurately, virtually 30% of the U.S. financial system and 70% of U.S. businesses are laid low with weather.  the aim of this monograph is to behavior an in-depth research of economic items which are traded within the climate industry. proposing a pricing and modeling strategy for climate derivatives written on numerous underlying climate variables can assist scholars, researchers, and pros safely rate climate derivatives, and should offer concepts for successfully hedging opposed to weather-related risk.  This publication will hyperlink the mathematical features of the modeling method of climate variables to the monetary markets and the pricing of climate derivatives.  little or no has been released within the quarter of climate danger, and this quantity will entice graduate-level scholars and researchers learning monetary arithmetic, threat administration, or power finance, as well as traders and execs in the monetary companies undefined. ​

Regression Analysis of Count Data (Econometric Society Monographs)

Scholars in either social and typical sciences frequently search regression easy methods to clarify the frequency of occasions, comparable to visits to a physician, vehicle injuries, or new patents offered. This ebook presents the main complete and updated account of types and strategies to interpret such info. The authors have carried out study within the box for greater than twenty-five years.

Modelling the Riskiness in Country Risk Ratings (Contributions to Economic Analysis)

The significance of state chance is underscored by means of the life of numerous favourite nation danger ranking organisations. those corporations mix information about replacement measures of monetary, monetary and political threat into linked composite probability scores. because the accuracy of such state probability measures is open to question, it is crucial to examine the supplier score structures to let an evaluate of the significance and relevance of enterprise chance scores.

Applied Macroeconometrics

Until eventually the Seventies, there has been a consensus in utilized macroeconometrics, either in regards to the theoretical beginning and the empirical specification of macroeconometric modelling, generally called the Cowles fee procedure. this can be not the case: the Cowles fee strategy broke down within the Nineteen Seventies, changed via 3 well known competing tools of empirical study: the LSE (London college of Economics) strategy, the VAR procedure, and the intertemporal optimization/Real enterprise Cycle strategy.

The rest of the chapter is organized as follows. In Sect. 2 data cleaning and preprocessing methods are discussed. In Sect. 1 methods for filling the missing values are presented, while in Sect. 2 methods for correcting erroneous values are described. Methods for detecting and correcting jumps and discontinuities in the data are presented in Sect. 3. In Sect. 3 the identification and modeling of trends is analyzed. The reasons that trends appear in meteorological data are discussed in Sect. 1. Urbanization effects are explained in Sect.

More precisely, methods for cleaning the data, identifying trends, patterns, and seasonalities are presented. This chapter further examines the impact of El Nin˜o and La Nin˜a in the values of the DATs. Finally, a novel method for selecting the length of the historical data for analysis is analytically described. In Chap. 4, we focus on pricing approaches of temperature derivatives. This chapter reviews in detail the most important and more often cited models proposed in literature to represent the temperature-driving process.
