  • Python Language Companion to Introduction to Applied Linear Algebra: Vectors, Matrices, and Least Squares 

    Leung, Jessica; Matsypura, Dmytro (2019-11-13)
    This Python Language Companion is drafted as a supplement to the book Introduction to Applied Linear Algebra: Vectors, Matrices, and Least Squares written by Stephen Boyd and Lieven Vandenberghe (referred to here as VMLS). ...
  • Predicting China’s Monetary Policy with Forecast Combinations 

    Pauwels, Laurent (Business Analytics., 2019-05-14)
    China’s monetary policy is unconventional and constantly evolving as a result of its rapid economic development. This paper proposes to use forecast combinations to predict the People’s Bank of China’s monetary policy ...
  • Fundamental Moments 

    Imbs, Jean; Pauwels, Laurent (Business Analytics., 2019-05-08)
    Global trade can give rise to global hubs, centers of activity whose influence on the global economy is large enough that local disturbances have consequences in the aggregate. This paper investigates the nature, existence, ...
  • A New Family of Copulas, with Application to Estimation of a Production Frontier System 

    Amsler, Christine; Prokhorov, Artem; Schmidt, Peter (Business Analytics., 2019-03-25)
    In this paper we propose a new family of copulas for which the copula arguments are uncorrelated but dependent. Specifically, if w1 and w2 are the uniform random variables in the copula, they are uncorrelated, but w1 is ...
  • Moment Redundancy Test with Application to Efficiency-Improving Copulas 

    Hao, Bowen; Prokhorov, Artem; Qian, Hailong (Business Analytics., 2019-03-25)
    Moment redundancy as defined by Breusch et al. (1999) is a testable hypothesis. We propose a simple test of the hypothesis in the context of copula-based pseudo-maximum likelihood estimation considered by Prokhorov and ...
