Calibration alternatives to logistic regression and their potential for transferring the statistical dispersion of discriminatory power into uncertainties in probabilities of default
This paper compares four calibration approaches to linear logistic regression in credit risk estimation and proposes two new single-parameter families of differentiable functions as candidates for this regression.
Risk Awards 2023: Doctoral dissertation outlines more efficient way to simulate rough volatility models
Annual recalibration of Simm could catapult some energy firms over relief thresholds
Rough vol models are calibrated and fitted to SPX and Vix smiles
New technique can improve use of adjoint algorithmic differentiation in calibration problems
A local volatility model based on the Bass construction and alternative to Dupire-style models is introduced
In this paper the authors formulate the one-dimensional RMQ and d-dimensional PMQ algorithms as standard vector quantization problems by deriving the density, distribution and lower partial expectation functions of the random variables to be quantized at…
This paper compares two methods to calibrate two popular models that are widely used for stochastic volatility modeling (ie, the SABR and Heston models) with the time series of options written on the Nasdaq 100 index to examine the regularization effect…
Optimal transport theory offers a data-driven way to calibrate derivatives pricing models
Volatility models and SPX/VIX joint dynamics are calibrated using optimal transport theory
Calibration of rating grades to point-in-time and through-the-cycle levels of probability of default
The paper argues for the need for and importance of the dual calibration of a probability of default (PD) model (ie, calibration to both point-in-time and through-the-cycle PD levels.)
This paper presents a backtesting framework for a probability of default model, assuming that the latter is calibrated to both point-in-time and through-the-cycle levels.
A new solution to calibrate derivatives with multiple strikes is proposed
This paper calibrates a perpetual-debt structural model (PDSM) by using Moody’s historical credit ratings.
This work presents an efficient computational framework for pricing a general class of exotic and vanilla options under a versatile stochastic volatility model.
Calibration of local-stochastic and path-dependent volatility models to vanilla and no-touch options
In this paper, the authors consider a large class of continuous semi-martingale models and propose a generic framework for their simultaneous calibration to vanilla and no-touch options.
