Risk analysis with Matlab

By Murray Bourne, 23 Aug 2007

An article from MATLAB, Modeling Market Risk Using Extreme Value Theory and Copulas, is a neat example of mathematical modeling.

Using a global equity index portfolio as an example, this article shows how MATLAB, Statistics Toolbox, and Optimization Toolbox enable you to apply this combined approach to evaluate a popular risk metric known as value-at-risk (VaR).

Math classrooms should involve the kind of activities that we see in this article:

  • Using authentic data
  • Modeling (describing real events using mathematical equations)
  • Calculating something that is useful in the real world (in this case, financial risk management)
  • Using math software to do the grunt work

Unfortunately, the recorded Webinar of this topic is nmo longer available.

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
