Stochastics and Finance: Jie Fan -- From mimicking to local Brownian motions

Dear All, 

You are kindly invited to attend the next Stochastic and Finance seminar.  On Tuesday
July 7 at 2pm (Sydney time) Jie Fan will give a talk via Zoom.  

Zoom link: 
Meeting ID: 985 6399 4179 

Speaker: Jie Fan (Monash University) 
Title: From mimicking to local Brownian motions
Motivated by questions from finance, we are interested in constructing new
processes from existing ones while preserving certain desired properties.  For instance,
constructing martingales with given marginal distributions allows us to have alternative
(and hopefully better) models for asset price while retaining the (European) option
prices.  In this talk, I will review some results on constructing martingales with given
marginal distributions, and introduce local Brownian motions, which are processes that
behave locally like a Brownian motion. 

Please feel free to forward this message to anyone who might be interested in this

Kind regards,
