Callable Swaps, Snowballs, and Videogames: Wilmott Magazine Article
Claudio Albanese 771 Views

Although economically more meaningful than the alternatives, short rate models have been dismissed for financial engineering applications in favor of market models as the latter are more flexible and best suited to cluster computing implementations.

In this paper, we argue that the paradigm shift toward GPU architectures currently taking place in the high performance computing world can potentially change the situation and tilt the balance back in favor of a new generation of short rate models.

The Dynamics of Financial Markets - Mandelbrot's Multifractal Cascades and Beyond: Wilmott Magazine Article
Lisa Borland, Jean-Philippe Bouchaud, Jean-François Muzy & Gilles Zumbach 4231 Views

We discuss how multiplicative cascades and related multifractal ideas might be relevant to model the main statistical features of financial time series, in particular the intermittent, long-memory nature of the volatility. We describe in details the Bacry-Muzy-Delour multifractal random walk. We point out some inadequacies of the current models, in particular concerning time reversal symmetry, and propose an alternative family of multi-timescale models, intermediate between GARCH models and multifractal models, that seem quite promising.
