    We study the notion of Nash equilibrium in a general nonzero-sum impulse game for two players. The main mathematical contribution of the paper is a verification theorem which provides, under some regularity conditions, the system of quasi-variational inequalities identifying the value functions and the optimal strategies of the two players. read more...

    Eurostat estimates that in 2015 carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from fossil fuel combustion increased by 0.7% in the European Union (EU), compared with the previous year. CO2 emissions are a major contributor to global warming and account for around 80% of all EU greenhouse gas emissions. They are influenced by factors such as climate conditions, economic growth, size of the population, transport and industrial activities. Various EU energy efficiency initiatives aim to reduce emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases.read more...

    We present a novel method for extracting cancer signatures by applying statistical risk models (this http URL) from quantitative finance to cancer genome data. Using 1389 whole genome sequenced samples from 14 cancers, we identify an "overall" mode of somatic mutational noise. We give a prescription for factoring out this noise and source code for fixing the number of signatures. We apply nonnegative matrix factorization (NMF) to genome data aggregated by cancer subtype and filtered using our method. The resultant signatures have substantially lower variability than those from unfiltered data. Also, the computational cost of signature extraction is cut by about a factor of 10. We find 3 novel cancer signatures, including a liver cancer dominant signature (96% contribution) and a renal cell carcinoma signature (70% contribution). Our method accelerates finding new cancer signatures and improves their overall stability. Reciprocally, the methods for extracting cancer signatures could have interesting applications in quantitative finance.

    We pose an optimal control problem arising in a perhaps new model for retirement investing. Given a control function $f$ and our current net worth as $X(t)$ for any $t$, we invest an amount $f(X(t))$ in the market. We need a fortune of $M$ "superdollars" to retire and want to retire as early as possible. We model our change in net worth over each infinitesimal time interval by the Ito process $dX(t)= (1+f(X(t))dt+ f(X(t))dW(t)$. We show how to choose the optimal $f=f_0$ and show that the choice of $f_0$ is optimal among all nonanticipative investment strategies, not just among Markovian ones.

    We introduce a bootstrap procedure for high-frequency statistics of Brownian semistationary processes. More specifically, we focus on a hypothesis test on the roughness of sample paths of Brownian semistationary processes, which uses an estimator based on a ratio of realized power variations. Our new resampling method, the local fractional bootstrap, relies on simulating an auxiliary fractional Brownian motion that mimics the fine properties of high frequency differences of the Brownian semistationary process under the null hypothesis. We prove the first order validity of the bootstrap method and in simulations we observe that the bootstrap-based hypothesis test provides considerable finite-sample improvements over an existing test that is based on a central limit theorem. This is important when studying the roughness properties of time series data; we illustrate this by applying the bootstrap method to two empirical data sets: we assess the roughness of a time series of high-frequency asset prices and we test the validity of Kolmogorov's scaling law in atmospheric turbulence data.

    Using a bondholder who seeks to determine when to sell his bond as our motivating example, we revisit one of Larry Shepp's classical theorems on optimal stopping. We offer a novel proof of Theorem 1 from from \cite{Shepp}. Our approach is that of guessing the optimal control function and proving its optimality with martingales. Without martingale theory one could hardly prove our guess to be correct.

    Chinese consumers were increasingly optimistic about the car buying environment in April but were less likely to act on this assessment as plans to buy a car over the next 12 months continued the downward movement seen since the start of the year. Meanwhile, a fall in expected running costs helped boost overall sentiment towards the sector.   The MNI China Car Purchase Indicator, a composite indicator designed to gauge overall conditions in the car market, rose 6% to 96.9 in April from 91.4 in March. The gain in the indicator, which is made up of two components, was driven by a combination of a decrease in consumers’ expectations for fuel costs, as well as an improvement in the assessment of the current buying conditions for cars. The Price of Gasoline component fell to 115.2 in April from 120.6 in March, with most consumers still expecting the price of fuel to increase in the coming months while the Car Purchase Expectations component edged up 5.5% to 109.1 in April, the second consecutive rise and the highest outturn since October 2010.   The improved sentiment towards the car market was not matched by actual ownership levels or planned purchases. The level of car ownership fell to 37.6% in April from 44.2% in March and there did not appear to be any plans to revise up this figure, with the proportion of consumers planning to buy a car in the next 12 months falling to 11.7% in April from 13.9% previously. Other detail in the report suggests uncertain economic prospects may have played a role, with 61.4% of respondents who thought it was a good time to buy a car putting it down to low prices rather than brighter income prospects or supportive policies.   Having continued to edge higher since March, the percentage of respondents with a car loan rose notably to 9.4% in April from 4.1% in March. Moreover, those with higher incomes (over CNY 96,000) were more likely to use leverage in April.   Of those still planning to buy a car, the planned budget of Chinese families gravitated towards the more expensive bands in April with the cheaper options falling out of favour. The largest percentage of responses went to the most expensive tier –over CNY 200,000– while there was a scale back in the mid-range of CNY 100,000 – CNY 140,000, which commanded the next highest proportion of responses. The second most expensive tier, CNY 150,000 – CNY 190,000, continued to gain more popularity between March and April. Download Report - English

    The Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA), together with Hawkamah, the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) Institute for Corporate Governance, and the Middle East Investor Relations Society (MEIRS), organised an outreach event last week on topics of Corporate Governance and investor relations. Panelists from each of these groups covered key topics, provided market insight and answered questions at the event. The event was targeted at representatives of companies listed on the DIFC markets, companies considering a listing, advisors and legal professionals advising firms on listing in the DIFC, investment bankers representing the buy-side for such listings, as well as investor relations professionals. Over 60 stakeholders attended the event.read more...
