This project focuses on the construction of complex networks of financial markets’ linkages around the world. First, several measures of associations will be considered, describing different aspects of market relationships. Second, suitable subgraphs will be identified, in order to create a suitable network representation capturing main dependencies between markets. Finally, the network...

The project addresses the disconnection issue of the current financial and economic agent- based research. A complex agent-based economic model with an integrated financial sector will be suggested and a focus will be devoted to its econometric estimation. This interconnection will allow an overall study of the economic system under realistic assumptions about the behavior of economic agents. The...

The project focuses on analysis of specific aspects of cryptoassets (cryptocurrencies), specifically on three main branches of research. First, we study the cryptoassets pricing mechanisms, mainly with respect to their fundamental factors such as number of users, number of transactions, traded volume, and others. The core models will be constructed utilizing the quantity theory of money and...

The recent availability of large digital finance datasets brings new challenges to quantitative finance. Many of the classical financial econometric or optimization models become inappropriate or intractable when applied to digital finance data. Vast quantities of information available in every moment require improvement of the classical methodology, in order to understand correctly the...

The goal of this Project is to study arbitrage opportunities on limit order markets with boundedly rational agents. To this end, we aim to construct a model of a market with boundedly rational liquidity providers (market makers), liquidity takers (institutional/retail investors) and arbitragers (high frequency traders), and examine pay-offs of the arbitragers depending on the market's...

Multi-objective stochastic programming problems correspond to economic situations in which economic process is simultaneously influenced by a random environment and a decision parameter selected with respect to multi-objective optimization problem depending on the probability measure. In applications very often the actual probability measure is a little perturbed, has to be replaced by empirical...

The project focuses on utilization of multifractal framework in finance and financial economics. Specifically, we focus on three main branches of research. First, we examine how occurrence of financial extreme events translates into multifractal properties of the time series. For this purpose, we utilize the cusp catastrophe theory and the log-periodic power-law model. Second, we study usefulness...

The project will develop a new measures of dependence between economic variables, which will allow to study the frequency dependent dznamics of correlations in different quantiles of joint distribution. Although the previous literature is helpful in uncovering the origins of dependence at one of these dimensions in manz important economic problems, there exists no methodology being able to...

The aim of this project is to model optimal dynamic behaviour of a risk-averse European carbon-emitting steel producer, to design and implement an algorithm solving the corresponding multi-stage optimisation problem and apply the model to a real-life steel company. A linear combination of mean profit and conditional value at risk will serve as a decision criterion; decision variables will...

This project extensively examines the effect of financial sector development and financial risks on both long-term economic growth as well as short-term economic fluctuations during the current financial crisis. First, we extend previous research on the effect of financial development on economic growth by considering multidimensionality of financial system in a fuller manner and by employing the...
