Computation of portfolio hedging strategies using a reduced Monge-Ampère equation : proceedings of the 20th International Conference on Computing in Economics and Finance, Oslo, June 22-24, 2014

Caboussat, Alexandre

In: Proceedings of the 20th International Conference on Computing in Economics and Finance, Oslo, June 22-24, 2014, 2014, p. 1-13

Fully nonlinear partial differential equations have been used in the literature when deriving models for optimal portfolio hedging under particular market dynamics. More precisely, some models lead to finding the solution of a Monge-Ampère sented to validate the effciency and the robustness of the methods in the stationary case, and a novel computational method is proposed...

Numerical simulation of free surface flows, with multiple liquid phases : proceedings of the 11th World Congress on Computational Mechanics (WCCM XI), 5th European Conference on Computational Mechanics (ECCM V) and 6th European Conference on Computational Fluid Dynamics (ECFD VI), July 20-25, 2014, Barcelona, Spain

Caboussat, Alexandre ; James, Nicolas ; Boyaval, Sébastien ; Picasso, Marco

In: Proceedings of the 11th World Congress on Computational Mechanics (WCCM XI), 5th European Conference on Computational Mechanics (ECCM V) and 6th European Conference on Computational Fluid Dynamics (ECFD VI), July 20-25, 2014, Barcelona, Spain, 2014, p. 5381--5391

We present a numerical framework for the simulation of multiphase flows with free surfaces, thus considering N incompressible liquid phases together with a vacuum. An Eulerian model is favored to track the liquid phases, based on several characteristic functions. The numerical algorithm relies on a time splitting strategy, together with a two-grid discretization method. Numerical experiments are...

The economic performance of Swiss drinking water utilities

Faust, Anne-Kathrin ; Baranzini, Andrea

In: Journal of productivity analysis, 2014, vol. 41, no. 3, p. 383-397

This paper measures the performance in terms of costs of Swiss drinking water utilities accounting for environmental factors. We estimate a translog stochastic variable cost frontier using two different techniques on an unbalanced panel of 141 water distribution utilities over the years 2002–2009, for a total of 745 observations. Results show that exogenous factors have an impact on variable...

Paying enough taxes already? Testing the acceptability of carbon taxes with survey data

Carattini, Stefano ; Baranzini, Andrea

In spite of economist’s claims, climate policy instruments such as carbon taxes are rarely implemented. This paper analyzes the drivers of carbon taxes acceptability in the semi-direct democratic context of Geneva, Switzerland. Based on a sample of more than 300 individuals, we assess the effect on acceptability of socioeconomic characteristics, environmental attitudes, social norms as well as...

Visualizing software structure understandability

Dugerdil, Philippe ; Niculescu, Mihnea

In: Software Engineering Conference (ASWEC), 2014, vol. 23, p. 110-119

Software architecture design is known to be driven by the quality attributes we may want to satisfy. Among them, modifiability plays an important role since software maintenance takes the lion's share in the software development costs. However, to successfully maintain a legacy system, the latter must be sufficiently understood so that the maintenance team will not introduce new bugs when...

Development and tuning of an original search engine for patent libraries in medicinal chemistry

Pasche, Emilie ; Gobeill, Julien ; Kreim, Olivier ; Oezdemir-Zaech, Fatma ; Vachon, Thérèse ; Lovis, Christian ; Ruch, Patrick

In: BMC Bioinformatics, 2014, vol. 15, no. Suppl. 1, p. 1-9

Background. The large increase in the size of patent collections has led to the need of efficient search strategies. But the development of advanced text-mining applications dedicated to patents of the biomedical field remains rare, in particular to address the needs of the pharmaceutical & biotech industry, which intensively uses patent libraries for competitive intelligence and drug...

On a many-to-one shortest paths for a taxi service

Varone, Sacha

Real application involving routing algorithms for moving vehicles needs accurate information, especially for micro mobility. In this note, we describe a reverse bounding Dijkstra algorithm using geographical maps, geographical coordinates of vehicles and pick-up point for a taxi fleet application. The problem that is solved consists in a customer request received by a taxi company, which has to...

Improving data and knowledge management to better integrate health care and research

Cases, Montserrat ; Furlong, Laura I. ; Albanell, Joan ; Altman, Russ B. ; Bellazzi, Riccardo ; Boyer, Scott ; Brand, Angela ; Brookes, Anthony J. ; Brunak, Soren ; Clark, Timothy W. ; Gea, Joaquim ; Ghazal, Peter ; Graf, Norbert ; Guigo, Roderic ; Klein, Teri E. ; Lopez-Bigas, Nuria ; Maojo, Victor ; Mons, Barend ; Musen, Mark ; Oliveira, José L. ; Rowe, Anthony ; Ruch, Patrick ; Shabo, Amnon ; Shortliffe, Edward H. ; Valencia, Alfonso ; van der Lei, Johan ; Mayer, Miguel A. ; Sanz, Ferran

In: Journal of internal medicine, 2013, vol. 274, no. 4, p. 321-328

Medicine is an increasingly data intensive discipline, with a growing need to link individual patient health records to rapidly changing research knowledge for better differential diagnosis, prognosis, and prediction of treatment response. Equally, biomedical research will gain massively from the integrative analysis of clinical and multi-omics information. Capitalizing on these opportunities...

Etude de l'intégration du repas dans l'acquisition des compétences nutritionnelles des enfants avec un diabète de type 1 et leur famille : travail de Bachelor

Gattollliat, Elodie ; Krayenbühl, Sarah ; Hauschild, M (Dir.) ; Depeyre, J. (Codir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute école de santé Genève, 2012.

Le projet a pour but de concevoir et d’intégrer un atelier d’enseignement nutritionnel « autour du repas » dans le dispositif d’éducation thérapeutique de l’HEL. L’objectif est de soutenir l’acquisition des connaissances nutritionnelles en lien avec le diabète ainsi que de développer les compétences des participants en autonomie, gestion du stress, estime et confiance en soi.
