About this book

The interaction between mathematicians, statisticians and econometricians working in actuarial sciences and finance is producing numerous meaningful scientific results. This volume introduces new ideas, in the form of four-page papers, presented at the international conference Mathematical and Statistical Methods for Actuarial Sciences and Finance (MAF), held at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (Spain), 4th-6th April 2018.

The book covers a wide variety of subjects in actuarial science and financial fields, all discussed in the context of the cooperation between the three quantitative approaches. The topics include: actuarial models; analysis of high frequency financial data; behavioural finance; carbon and green finance; credit risk methods and models; dynamic optimization in finance; financial econometrics; forecasting of dynamical actuarial and financial phenomena; fund performance evaluation; insurance portfolio risk analysis; interest rate models; longevity risk; machine learning and soft-computing in finance; management in insurance business; models and methods for financial time series analysis, models for financial derivatives; multivariate techniques for financial markets analysis; optimization in insurance; pricing; probability in actuarial sciences, insurance and finance; real world finance; risk management; solvency analysis; sovereign risk; static and dynamic portfolio selection and management; trading systems.

This book is a valuable resource for academics, PhD students, practitioners, professionals and researchers, and is also of interest to other readers with quantitative background knowledge.

Marco Corazza has a PhD in "Mathematics for the Analysis of Financial Markets" and is an associate professor at the Department of Economics of the Ca' Foscari University of Venice (Italy). His main research interests include static and dynamic portfolio management theories; trading system models; machine learning applications in finance; bio-inspired optimization techniques; multi-criteria methods for economic decision support; port scheduling models and algorithms; and non-standard probability distributions in finance. He has participated in several research projects, at both the national and international level, and is the author/coauthor of one hundred and twenty scientific publications, some of which have received national and international awards. He is also editor-in-chief of the international scientific journal "Mathematical Methods in Economics and Finance", and is a member of the scientific committees of several conferences and of some private companies. His combines his academic activities with consulting services.

María Durbán is a professor of Statistics at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (Spain). Her main areas of research are non-parametric regression, smooth mixed models and regression models for spatio-temporal data. She has numerous publications in these topics and their application in areas such as epidemiology, economics, and environmental sciences. She has been part of many scientific committees of international conferences. 

Aurea Grané is a professor of Statistics at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (Spain).
