- Measuring and marking counterparty risk (Eduardo Canabarro, Darrell Duffie, 2003) – addressing counterparty default risk in OTC contracts. Periodically exchanging collateral in the mark-to-market sense reduces this risk, but unlike futures contracts there are no daily-settlements. OTC-traded Credit Default Swaps on subprime mortgages are a classical example of real-world counterparty defaults. Collateral agreements are essential in reducing risks – but they affect liquidity. Dealers use various systems for tracking and estimating PFE (potential future exposure). What are the right tools for modelling PFE for each OTC contract ?
- Option Pricing and the Dirichlet problem (Mark Joshi) – classical “finding function that satisfies boundary conditions of given PDE” on Laplace equation. Introducing potential financial interpretations.
- Kakutani’s fixed point theorem – sufficient conditions for a set-valued function defined on convex, compact subset of Eucledian space to have a fixed point.
