Land and Stock Bubbles, Crashes and Exit Strategies In Japan Circa 1990 and in 2013
The book gives in-depth analysis of historical background and the current economic relations between Russia and Japan.
In this work we discuss complex dynamics arising in a model describing behavior of an encapsulated bubble contrast agent oscillating close to an elastic wall. We demonstrate presence of three coexisting attractors in the system. We propose an efficient numerical procedure based on the continuation method that can be used to locate the area of coexistence of these attractors in the parameters space. We provide area of coexistence of three attractors obtained by means of the proposed procedure.
In this paper, the authors apply a continuous-time stochastic process model developed by Shiryaev and Zhutlukhin for optimally stopping random price processes that appear to be bubbles, defined as price increases that are largely based on the expectation of higher and higher future prices. Futures traders, such as George Soros, attempt to trade such markets, trying to exit near the peak from a starting long position. The model applies equally well to the question of when to enter and exit a short position. In this article, the authors test the model in two technology markets. These include the price of Apple computer stock from various times in 2009–2012 after the local low of March 6, 2009, plus a market in which the generally very successful bubble trader George Soros lost money by shorting the NASDAQ-100 stock index too soon in 2000. The model provides good exit points in both situations; these would have been profitable to speculators who employed the model.
Game-theoretic model of Minsky’s tension is proposed. This model illustrates logic of actions for potential sellers in the context of «animal spirit» of confidence realization and herding behavior for situation when sufficient mass of players has doubts about further market price rise in a period from the end of euphoria until the beginning of panic. The logic of behavior for potential sellers and features of the way «animal spirit» of confidence influences them are revealed.
We consider certain spaces of functions on the circle, which naturally appear in harmonic analysis, and superposition operators on these spaces. We study the following question: which functions have the property that each their superposition with a homeomorphism of the circle belongs to a given space? We also study the multidimensional case.
We consider the spaces of functions on the m-dimensional torus, whose Fourier transform is p -summable. We obtain estimates for the norms of the exponential functions deformed by a C1 -smooth phase. The results generalize to the multidimensional case the one-dimensional results obtained by the author earlier in “Quantitative estimates in the Beurling—Helson theorem”, Sbornik: Mathematics, 201:12 (2010), 1811 – 1836.
