Calculation Of A Class Of Gaussian Integrals: Derivation Of Payoff At Expiry For European Option

Article in Press

This work deals with the calculation of a class of Gaussian integral of the form ?_0^???d? exp?[(-(x-??)^2)/4?+???] ?, where ?=±1. Completing the squares of the exponential and changing variables led to the solution e^?(x+??) ?(? (x+2??)/?2?) where ? denotes the cumulative standard normal distribution function. An equation which corresponds to payoff at expiry for European option was derived.

Quasi-Newton methods are among the most practical and efficient iterative methods for solving unconstrained optimization problem . These methods accelerate the steepest-descent technique for function minimization by using computational history to generate a sequence of approximations to the inverse of the Hessian matrix. Among those Quasi-Newton methods we focus on two different update formulas, which use line search...

Yelli - a new extraction optimization approach to Frequent 2-itemsets

Article in Press

In this paper, we propose a new optimization approach to the APRIORI reference algorithm (AGR 94) for 2-itemsets (sets of cardinal 2). The approach used is based on two-item sets. We start by calculating the 1-itemets supports (cardinal 1 sets), then we prune the 1-itemsets that are not frequent and keep only those that are frequent (ie those that have the itemsets whose values are greater than or equal to a fixed minimum...
