C source code and research paper from rentech

No joke. C source code from a employee in 2001 in Rentech. I also found a bunch of research papers from another researcher at the firm. This is of James Simmons fame

As a tip, just follow these research names of RenTech via Linked In. This shows what kind of projects they worked on before joining the hedge fund.

Some RenTech employees come MIT, Harvard, Yale, and Stanford. Just so you know. See some these links here:

Embracing Downside Risk

Equity index option pricing is examined in detail in this paper. The authors conclude that most of the empirical equity risk premium relates to compensation for taking on downside risk; therefore, downside risk is something to be embraced.

Adding Alpha by Subtracting Beta: A Case Study on how Quant Tools can Improve a Portfolio’s Returns by Axioma

A ‘real world’ portfolio is used to illustrate how fundamental managers can use quantitative tools to identify and lessen potential issues in their portfolio, thereby improving their realized returns.

An Asset Allocation Primer: Connecting Markowitz, Kelly and Risk Parity by PIMCO

Start of Something Big: Demystifying the Source of Large Alpha in Small Caps by QMA

Active small-cap managers continue to outperform. QMA posits that capturing alpha in small caps is largely the result of inefficiencies that create pronounced mispricings that diligent managers can exploit on a regular basis.

Path Integral & Asset Pricing quant paper

Path Integral & Asset Pricing quant paper

Another research paper from SSRN

http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2506430

Abstract:

We give a pragmatic/pedagogical discussion of using Euclidean path integral in asset pricing. We then illustrate the path integral approach on short-rate models. By understanding the change of path integral measure in the Vasicek/Hull-White model, we can apply the same techniques to “less-tractable” models such as the Black-Karasinski model. We give explicit formulas for computing the bond pricing function in such models in the analog of quantum mechanical “semiclassical” approximation. We also outline how to apply perturbative quantum mechanical techniques beyond the “semiclassical” approximation, which are facilitated by Feynman diagrams.

Quant analysus math researcb paper for Phynance

Quant analysus math  researcb paper for Phynance

New research paper from SSRN

http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2433826

Abstract:

These are the lecture notes for an advanced Ph.D. level course I taught in Spring ’02 at the C.N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics at Stony Brook. The course primarily focused on an introduction to stochastic calculus and derivative pricing with various stochastic computations recast in the language of path integral, which is used in theoretical physics, hence “Phynance”. I also included several “quiz” problems (with solutions) comprised of (pre-)interview questions quantitative finance job candidates were sometimes asked back in those days.

YinYang Volatility Bands correct with new Paper

YinYang Volatility Bands working with new Paper

Yin-yang_volatility – CFRI Journal

From the author of this indicator:

thanks for your interest in my YinYang Volatility bands.
Your code looks correct.
However, in real applications, your “direct” may have wipsaws, so you could add a moving average on your “d” before calculating “direct”.
For your information, that paper of mine was formally published as
 
 Heping Pan (2012): Yin-Yang Volatility in Scale Space of Price-Time – A Core Structure of Financial Market Risk. China Finance Review International, CFRI 2.4, 377-405.
 
(this is an English journal). This paper is attached.
 
     Best wishes
     Pan Heping
I will post this Matlab source code to my Quant Elite members soon. I also need to thank Dr Ernie Chan for getting me to this point as well. He is an amazing resource to have around.
