Linear Algebra

Matrix can operate on a vector

How does zero matrix operate?

How does unit matrix operate?

CF1

Linear Algebra

Transposition of a matrix

A symmetric matrix is A=AT

for example a variance-covariance matrix.

CF1

Linear Algebra

- Matrix multiplication corresponds to a consecutive application of each operator.
- Note that it is not commutative! ABBA.
- Unit matrix does not change a vector.
- An inverse matrix is such that AA-1=I.

CF1

Linear Algebra

- Determinant of a matrix ...
- A matrix can be inverted if det(A)0
- Rank of a matrix
- Matrix as a system of linear equations Ax=b.
- Uniqueness and existence of a solution.
- Trace tr(A) – sum of diagonal elements.

CF1

Linear Algebra

- Change of coordinates C-1AC.
- Jordan decomposition.
- Matrix power Ak.
- Matrix as a quadratic form (metric) xTAx.
- Markov process.
- Eigenvectors, eigenvalues Ax=x, optimization.

CF1

Simple Exercises

- Show an example of ABBA.
- Construct a matrix that inverts each vector.
- Construct a matrix that rotates a two dimensional vector by an angle .
- Construct a covariance matrix, show that it is symmetric.
- What is mean and variance of a portfolio in matrix terms?

CF1

Examples

- Credit rating and credit dynamics.
- Variance-covariance model of VaR.
- Can the var-covar matrix be inverted
- VaR isolines (the ovals model).
- Prepayment model based on types of clients.
- Finding a minimum of a function.

CF1

Calculus

- Function of one and many variables.
- Continuity in one and many directions.
- Derivative and partial derivative.
- Gradient and Hessian.
- Singularities, optimization, ODE, PDE.

CF1

Variance-Covariance

For a short time period , the changes in the value are distributed approximately normal with the following mean and variance:

CF1

Weighted Variance covariance

Covariance on day i based on last M days.

It is important to check that the resulting

matrix is positive definite!

CF1

Positive Quadratic Form

For every vector x a we have x.A.x > 0

Only such a matrix can be used to define a norm.

For example, this matrix can not have negative diagonal elements. Any variance-covariance matrix must be positive.

CF1

Positive Quadratic Form

Needs["LinearAlgebra`MatrixManipulation`"];

ClearAll[ positiveForm ];

positiveForm[ a_?MatrixQ ] := Module[{aa, i},

aa = Table[

Det[ TakeMatrix[ a, {1, 1}, {i, i}] ],

{i, Length[a]}];

{ aa, If[ Count[ aa, t_ /; t < 0] > 0, False, True]}

];

CF1

Stochastic (transition) Matrix

Used to define a Markov chain (only the last state matters).

A matrix P is stochastic if it is non-negative and sum of elements in each line is 1.

One can easily see that 1 is an eigenvalue of any stochastic matrix.

What is the eigenvector?

CF1

Stochastic (transition) Matrix

Theorem: P0 is stochastic iff (1,1,…1) is an eigenvector with an eigenvalue 1 and this is the maximal eigenvalue.

If both P and PT are stochastic, then P is called double stochastic.

CF1

Cholesky decomposition

The Cholesky decomposition writes a symmetric positive definite matrix as the product of an uppertriangular matrix and its transpose.

In MMA CholeskyDecomposition[m]

Generating Random Samples

We need to sample two normally distributed variables with correlation .

If we can sample two independent Gaussian variables x1 and x2 then the required variables can be expressed as

CF1

Generating Random Samples

We need to sample n normally distributed variables with correlation matrix ij, ( >0).

Sample n independent Gaussian variables x1…xn.

ContourPlot[ x^2+y^3, {x,-2,2}, {y,- 2,2}]

ContourPlot[ x^2+y^3, {x,-2,2}, {y,- 2,2}], Contours->{1 ,-0.5}, ContourShading->False];

ContourPlot[ x^2+y^3, {x,-2,2}, {y,- 2,2}], Contours->{1 ,-0.5}, ContourShading->False];

Example

Consider a portfolio with two risk factors and benchmark duration of 6M.

The VaR limit is 3 bp. and you have to make two decisions:

a – % of assets kept in spread products

q – duration mismatch

we assume that all instruments (both treasuries and spread) have the same duration T+q months.

CF1

risk one can increase duration

(in this case).

q - duration

mismatch

a (% of spread)

Position 2M, and

10% spread

5% weekly VaR=2.2 bp

weekly VaR limit 3 bp

time

Finite DifferencesFollowing P. Wilmott, “Derivatives”

Typically equal time and S (or logS) steps.

CF1

Finite Differences

Time step t

asset step S

(i,k) node of the grid is t = T - kt, iS

0 i I, 0 k K

assets value at each node is

note the direction of time!

CF1

Boundary conditions Call

For example a Call option

For large S the Call value asymptotes to

S-Ee-r(T-t)

CF1

Explicit scheme

Stability problems related to step sizes.

These relationships should guarantee stability.

Note that reducing asset step by half we must reduce the time step by a factor of four.

CF1

Explicit scheme

Advantages

easy to program, hard to make a mistake

when unstable it is obvious

coefficients can be S and t dependent

Disadvantages

there are restrictions on time step, which may cause slowness.

CF1

Crank-Nicolson scheme

Theoretically this equation can be solved as

In practice this is inefficient!

CF1

LU decomposition

M is tridiagonal, thus M=LU, where L is lower triangular, and U is upper triangular.

In fact L has 1 on the diagonal and one subdiagonal only, U has a diagonal and one superdiagonal.

CF1

LU decomposition

Very fast, especially when M is time independent.

Disadvantages:

Needs a big modification for American options

CF1

Other methods

- SOR successive over relaxation
- Douglas scheme
- Three time-level scheme
- Alternating direction method
- Richardson Extrapolation
- Hopscotch method
- Multigrid methods

CF1

Multidimensional case

Fixed t layer

S

These values are used

to calculate space derivatives

r

Note additional boundary conditions.

CF1

Euler Scheme

CF1

Siegel’s paradox

Consider two currencies X and Y. Define S an exchange rate (the number of units of currency Y for a unit of X).

The risk-neutral process for S is

By Ito’s lemma the process for 1/S is

CF1

Siegel’s paradox

The paradox is that the expected growth rate of 1/S is not ry - rX, but has a correction term.
