Computational Methods for Jump Processes

From Monday 7th of July 2014 (lunch time) to Wednesday 9th of July (afternoon).

Diffusion and jump diffusion models are used to describe a large variety of stochastic phenomena in both natural and social sciences from finance and credit risk to neurobiology and chemistry. However, designing efficient inference and simulation procedures for diffusions and jump diffusions is a very challenging task. Some elementary properties of these models, such as transition probabilities, are not available in closed form. Consequently, exact simulation of diffusion trajectories and diffusion bridges is highly nontrivial. Models that account for jumps add another layer of complication.

The aim of this workshop is to highlight the recent advances in the estimation and the simulation of jump diffusions. All aspects of inference for stochastic processes will be considered:

  • Series approximation based methods.
  • Spectral/generator based simulation and estimation methods for jump processes.
  • Perfect simulation of jump processes.
  • Sequential Monte Carlo methods.
