About this book

The cooperation and contamination between mathematicians, statisticians and econometricians working in actuarial sciences and finance is improving the research on these topics and producing numerous meaningful scientific results. This volume presents new ideas, in the form of four- to six-page papers, presented at the International Conference eMAF2020 – Mathematical and Statistical Methods for Actuarial Sciences and Finance. Due to the now sadly famous COVID-19 pandemic, the conference was held remotely through the Zoom platform offered by the Department of Economics of the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice on September 18, 22 and 25, 2020.

eMAF2020 is the ninth edition of an international biennial series of scientific meetings, started in 2004 at the initiative of the Department of Economics and Statistics of the University of Salerno. The effectiveness of this idea has been proven by wide participation in all editions, which have been held in Salerno (2004, 2006, 2010 and 2014), Venice (2008, 2012 and 2020), Paris (2016) and Madrid (2018).

This book covers a wide variety of subjects: artificial intelligence and machine learning in finance and insurance, behavioral finance, credit risk methods and models, dynamic optimization in finance, financial data analytics, forecasting dynamics of actuarial and financial phenomena, foreign exchange markets, insurance models, interest rate models, longevity risk, models and methods for financial time series analysis, multivariate techniques for financial markets analysis, pension systems, portfolio selection and management, real-world finance, risk analysis and management, trading systems, and others.

This volume is a valuable resource for academics, PhD students, practitioners, professionals and researchers. Moreover, it is also of interest to other readers with quantitative background knowledge.​

About the editors

Marco Corazza, PhD in "Mathematics for the Analysis of Financial Markets", is an associate professor at the Department of Economics of the Ca' Foscari University of Venice. Among his main research interests are static and dynamic portfolio management theories; trading system models; machine learning applications in finance; bioinspired metaheuristics for optimization; multicriteria methods for economic decision support; nonstandard probability distributions in finance; and port scheduling models and algorithms. He has participated and participates in several research projects, both at the national and international levels. He is an author/coauthor of approximately one hundred thirty scientific publications; some of them have received national and international awards. He is also editor-in-chief of the international scientific journal “Mathematical Methods in Economics and Finance”, editor of Springer books, and has been and is member of the scientific committees of several conferences and of some private companies. His combined academic activity with consulting services.

Manfred Gilli is Professor emeritus at the Geneva School of Economics and Management at the University of Geneva, where he has taught numerical methods in economics and finance. He is also a faculty member of the Swiss Finance Institute, a member of the Advisory Board of Computational Statistics and Data Analysis and a member of the editorial board of Computational Economics. He formerly served as president of the Society for Computational Economics.
