• 26. October 2017
Rudower Chaussee 25, Room 1.115, 4 p.m.
Lecturer: Alvaro Cartea (University of Oxford)
We develop the optimal trading strategy for a Foreign Exchange (FX) broker who must liquidate a large position in an illiquid currency pair.
• 26. October 2017
Rudower Chaussee 25, Room 1.115, 5 p.m.
Lecturer: Johannes Ruf (London School of Economics)
The capitalization-weighted cumulative variation $\sum_{i=1}^d \int_0^\cdot \mu_i (t) \dx \langle \log \mu_i \rangle (t)$ in an equity market consisting of a fixed number $d$ of assets with capitaliza
• 19. July 2017
WIAS, Erhard-Schmidt-Saal, Mohrenstraße 39, 10117 Berlin, 6 p.m.
Lecturer: Anton Bovier (Bonn)
Standard stochastic models of adaptive dynamics are based on haploid reproduction schemes. They are sometimes criticised for the difficulty to create genetic diversity.
• 13. July 2017
TU Berlin, Room MA 043, Straße des 17. Juni 136, 10623 Berlin, 4 p.m.
Lecturer: Hamed Amini (University of Miami)
We derive rigorous asymptotic results for the magnitude of contagion in a large financial network and give an analytical expression for the asymptotic fraction of defaults, in terms of network charact
• 13. July 2017
TU Berlin, Room MA 043, Straße des 17. Juni 136, 10623 Berlin, 5 p.m.
Lecturer: Nicole Bäuerle (Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT))
We consider the problem of minimizing a certainty equivalent of the total or discounted cost over a finite time horizon which is generated by a Partially Observable Markov Decision Process (POMDP).
• 5. July 2017
TU Berlin, Room MA 041, Straße des 17. Juni 136, 10623 Berlin, 6 p.m.
Lecturer: Ilya Goldsheid (London)
It is well known that a random walk in random environment on a strip in the environment viewed from the particlesetting is a Markov chain on the set of environments.
• 29. June 2017
TU Berlin, Room MA 043, Straße des 17. Juni 136, 10623 Berlin, 5 p.m.
Lecturer: Johannes Muhle-Karbe (University of Michigan)
In the perturbation analysis of various models with small frictions, a crucial role is played by the risk tolerance of the indirect utility process.
• 29. June 2017
TU Berlin, Room MA 043, Straße des 17. Juni 136, 10623 Berlin, 4 p.m.
Lecturer: Francesca Biagini (LMU München)
We study the concept of financial bubble under model uncertainty. We suppose the agent to be endowed with a family Q of local martingale measures for the underlying discounted asset price.

TU Berlin, Room MA 043, Straße des 17. Juni 136, 10623 Berlin, 5 p.m.
Lecturer: Carlos Oliveira (Universidade de Lisboa & HU Berlin)
This work provides a full characterization of the value function and solution(s) of an optimal stopping problem for a one-dimensional diffusion with an integral criterion.
• 15. June 2017
TU Berlin, Room MA 043, Straße des 17. Juni 136, 10623 Berlin, 4 p.m.
Lecturer: Huyen Pham (Université Paris Diderot)
We study and revisit the optimal control problem of partially observed stochastic systems.
