Hedging and risk measurement for option portfolios

Fierli, Francesco ; Barone-Adesi, Giovanni (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2004 ; 2004ECO005.

In the first part of this work we address the problem of parameter misspecification in a generic class of stochastic volatility models. We extend the approach proposed by Avellaneda, Levy and Paràs (1995) (hereafter ALP) by moving from a framework with uncertain volatility to the uncertainty on volatility process parameters. We assume that parameter values of the stochastic volatility model are...

Intracellular vesicle transport in "Arabidopsis thaliana" : functional characterization of the t-SNARE homologue AtSNAP33

Wick, Peter ; Sticher, Liliane (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2002 ; no 1386.

The secretory pathway is a complex endomembrane system essential for all eukaryotic cells. It transports proteins to the extracellular space or to the vacuole. All proteins which are secreted are synthesized at the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and have a signal peptide in common. The signal peptide is necessary for the transport into the lumen of the ER where the correct folding of the protein...

Molecular analysis of the arabidopsis-Phytophthora pathosystem

Si-Ammour, Azeddine ; Mauch, Felix (Dir.) ; Métraux, Jean-Pierre (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2002 ; No 1370.

In order to better understand the Phytophthora-plant interaction, we have developed a new pathosystem: Arabidopsis thaliana-Phytophthora porri. At present, the best studied Phytophthora species is P. infestans which caused the dramatic Irish late blight epidemics 150 years ago. Studying the pathosystem Phytophthora infestans-Solanum tuberosum has certain advantages mainly because potato is an...

EMuds : adaptation in text-based virtual worlds

Robert, Antony ; Courant, Michèle (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 1999 ; no 1272.

This thesis introduces a methodological approach to artificial agent design. In an attempt to solve the symbol grounding problem of artificial intelligence, a new theoretical perspective on the agent-environment relation is explored and experimentation is led to motivate this methodology. From the original idea that in order to ground an agent in an environment, the agent’s representation...

Towards active network management with "Ecomobile", an ecosystem-inspired mobile agent middleware : design, implementation, simulation and application to optical networks

Rossier-Ramuz, Daniel ; Hirsbrunner, Beat (Dir.) ; Scheurer, Rudolf (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2002 ; no 1392.

The future multi-layer optical networks based on wavelength division multiplexing technology will lead to the creation of new value-added optical services, which is bound to transform the traditional passive transport network into an active and intelligent transport layer. The successful deployment of these complex networking services and the possibility of subjecting them to a dynamic control,...
