Department of Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 119
When drawing a graph in the plane, we may have to allow edges to cross each other. The crossing number of a graph is the smallest number of crossings required to draw the graph. The crossing number is a measure of the non-planarity of a graph, and it has become a central tool in graph drawing. In... read more

A very interesting class of stochastic processes was introduced in 1971 by Alan Hawkes. These processes, called now Hawkes processes, are meant to model self-exciting and mutually-exciting random phenomena that evolve in time. The self-exciting phenomena are modeled as univariate Hawkes processes,... read more

In a crisis when faced with insolvency, banks can issue shares/sell their treasury stock in the stock market and borrow money in order to raise funds. We propose a simple model to find the maximum amount of new funds the bank can raise in this way. To do this we incorporate market confidence of the... read more
