  7. A stochastic PDE model for limit order book dynamics 

    Cont, Rama; Müller, Marvin Sebastian (2019)
    arXiv
    We propose an analytically tractable class of models for the dynamics of a limit order book, described as the solution of a stochastic partial differential equation (SPDE) with multiplicative noise. We provide conditions under which the model admits a finite dimensional realization driven by a (low-dimensional) Markov process, leading to efficient methods for estimation and computation. We study two examples of parsimonious models in this ...

  8. Automatic Programming of Cellular Automata and Artificial Neural Networks Guided by Philosophy 

    Christen, Patrik; Del Fabbro, Olivier (2019)
    arXiv
    Many computer models such as cellular automata have been developed and successfully applied. However, in some cases these models might be restrictive on the possible solutions or their solution is difficult to interpret. To overcome this problem, we outline an approach, the so-called allagmatic method, that automatically creates and programs models with as little limitations as possible but still maintaining human interpretability. We ...

  10. Consumer Myopia in vehicle purchases: Evidence from a natural experiment 

    Gillingham, Kenneth; Houde, Sébastien; van Benthem, Arthur A. (2019)
    Economics Working Paper Series
    A central question in the analysis of fuel-economy policy is whether consumers aremyopic with regards to future fuel costs. We provide the first evidence on consumer valuation of fuel economy from a natural experiment. We examine the short-run equilibrium effects of an exogenous restatement of fuel-economy ratings that affected 1.6 million vehicles. Using the implied changes in willingness-to-pay, we find that consumers act myopically: ...

  12. Falschübersetzungen? 

    Bruderer, Herbert (2019)
    Die automatische Übersetzung natürlicher Sprachen hat in letzter Zeit zwar grosse Fortschritte gemacht, sie ist aber nach wie vor mangelhaft. So gibt es, wie dieser Bericht zeigt, Schwierigkeiten bei der Erkennung von Verbformen (2. Person Einzahl und Mehrzahl, Höflichkeitsform). Das wirkt sich vor allem bei der Übertragung in die Sprachen Französisch, Italienisch und Spanisch aus. Die Programme erkennen zudem offensichtliche Fehler im ...

  13. Measuring Knightian Uncertainty 

    Dibiasi, Andreas; Iselin, David (2019)
    KOF Working Papers
    Uncertainty shapes the trajectory of business cycles and remains a central research topic in Macroeconomics. When studying the impact of uncertainty on the economy, economists use different uncertainty measures. While all indicators approximate uncertainty along some certain dimension, none of the indicators directly captures Knightian Uncertainty. According to Knight, uncertainty represents a situation in which it is no longer possible ...

  14. Perfect Prediction in Minkowski Spacetime: Perfectly Transparent Equilibrium for Dynamic Games with Imperfect Information 

    Fourny, Ghislain (2019)
    The assumptions of necessary rationality and necessary knowledge of strategies, also known as perfect prediction, lead to at most one surviving outcome, immune to the knowledge that the players have of them. Solutions concepts implementing this approach have been defined on both dynamic games with perfect information, the Perfect Prediction Equilibrium, and strategic games with no ties, the Perfectly Transparent Equilibrium. In this ...

  15. Data-driven occupancy schedules for commercial buildings 

    Happle, Gabriel; Fonseca, Jimeno A.; Schlüter, Arno (2019)
    Standard schedules of occupancy are one of the backbones of building energy simulations. Some schedules that are in use today were published 40 years ago and have not been modified ever since. In this work, we aim at reviewing the representativeness of such standard schedules by comparison to a large data set. We extracted popular times data for commercial buildings, which has the same data structure as occupancy profiles, from the Google ...
