The transdisciplinary nature of so much components goals to emphasize a compelling experience of objective within the paintings developed.

Under some conditions both solutions are stationary (with known stationary densities). To appreciate the differences between the Wiener process (the unbounded RW) and the bounded RW, we simulate one trajectory for both processes in the period t  >0 , 20 @ with X 0 100 . We considered k 2 , D 1 D 2 2 , W 100 and V 4 . The paths are presented in figure 2. In the neighbourhood of W 100 the function a x is (approximately) zero, so X behaves as a Wiener process (or a random walk in continuous-time).

Volatility clustering is a typical phenomenon in financial time series. ” A measurement of this fact is that, while returns themselves are uncorrelated, absolute returns rt or their squares display a positive, significant and slowly decaying autocorrelation function: Corr rt , rt W ! 0 for IJ ranging from a few minutes to several weeks. Periods of high volatility lead to extreme values (and thus to a leptokurtic distribution). Figure 1 shows a typical time series of returns. Any econometric model for returns should capture these general features of financial time series data.
