Období: 2016 - 2018
The project will develop a new measures of dependence between economic variables, which will allow to study the frequency dependent dznamics of correlations in different quantiles of joint distribution.
Období: 2008 - 2010
The goal of the grant project is the construction and verification of a heterogeneous agent model which will be an extension of the model developed by Brock and Hommes. The new model will include a possibility to change the mood of the investors on the market. This modification will allow changing phases of optimism and pessimism and will enable generation of more realistic financial time series.
