    • A pricing model for yield contracts 

      Aase, Knut K. (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2002)
      An economic model is proposed for a combined price futures and yield futures market. The innovation of the paper is a technique of transforming from quantity and price to a model of two genuine pricing processes. This is ...
    • A pricing model for yield contracts 

      Aase, Knut K. (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2002)
      An economic model is proposed for the analysis of quantum and revenue hedges, and prices of contingent claims on revenue and quantum are presented and discussed. In particular we discuss how one can use futures, and futures ...
    • Pricing of rate of return guarantees on multi-period assets 

      Lindset, Snorre (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2001-06)
      The basis for this paper is the pricing of multi-period rate of return guarantees. These guarantees can typically be found in life insurance and pension contracts. We derive closed form solutions, expressed by the cumulative ...

      With greater penetration of renewable generation, the uncertainty faced in electricity markets has increased substantially. Conventionally, generators are assigned a pre-dispatch quantity in advance of real time, based on ...
    • Probabilistic cost efficiency and bounded rationality in the newsvendor model 

      Ubøe, Jan; Andersson, Jonas; Jörnsten, Kurt; Lillestøl, Jostein; Sandal, Leif Kristoffer (Doctoral dissertation;41/14, Working paper, 2014-12)
      In this paper we establish a link between probabilistic cost efficiency and bounded rationality in the newsvendor model. This establishes a framework where bounded rationality can be examined rigorously by statistical ...
    • Product quality, competition, and multi-purchasing 

      Anderson, Simon P.; Foros, Øystein; Kind, Hans Jarle (Discussion paper;2012:9, Working paper, 2012-08)
      In a Hotelling duopoly model, we introduce quality that is more appreciated by closer consumers. Then higher common quality raises equilibrium prices, in contrast to the standard neutrality result. Furthermore, we allow ...

      We have collected odds and results from 7 474 horse races in Norway and Sweden for a period of approximately 1.5 years. Based on the odds from the win game, we construct a profitable betting strategy for the corresponding ...
    • The propagation of financial extremes 

      Chollete, Lorán (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2008-07)
      What drives extreme economic events? Motivated by recent theory, and events in US subprime markets, we begin to open the black box of extremes. Specifically, we extend standard economic analysis of extreme risk, allowing ...
    • The propagation of financial extremes: an application to subprime market spillovers 

      Chollete, Lorán (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2007-12)
      What drives extreme and rare economic events? Motivated by recent theory, and events in US subprime markets, we begin to open the black box of extremes. Specifically, we build a taxonomy of extremes, then extend standard ...

      Levy, Haim; De Giorgi, Enrico; Hens, Thorsten (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2003-10)
      Under the assumption of normally distributed returns, we analyze whether the Cumulative Prospect Theory of Tversky and Kahneman (1992) is consistent with the Capital Asset Pricing Model. We find that in every financial ...
