  • Dynamic Asset Allocation in a Conditional Value-at-risk Framework 

    Tan, Lin Zhi (University of ExeterDepartment of Finance, 2013-05-29)
    The thesis first extends the original Black-Litterman model to dynamic asset allocation area by using the expected conditional equilibrium return and conditional covariances based on three volatility models (the DCC model, ...
  • Dynamic configurational anisotropy in nanomagnets 

    Kruglyak, V.V.; Keatley, Paul Steven; Hicken, R.J.; Childress, J.R.; Katine, J.A. (American Physical Society, 2007)
    The angular dependence of ultrafast magnetization dynamics in nanomagnets of square shape was studied by magneto-optical pump-probe measurements. In agreement with micromagnetic simulations, both the number of precessional ...
  • Dynamic control of visible radiation by a liquid crystal filled Fabry-Pérot etalon 

    Jewell, Sharon A.; Cornford, Stephen Leslie; Sambles, J. Roy (American Institute of Physics, 2007)
    A liquid crystal filled Fabry-Pérot etalon has been constructed to control the resonant transmission of electromagnetic radiation over the visible range of the spectrum. This has been achieved through the use of a 1.5 µm ...
  • Dynamic hedge fund portfolio construction 

    Harris, Richard D. F.; Mazibas, Murat (University of Exeter Business School, 2009-11)
    In this paper, we provide further evidence on the use of multivariate conditional volatility models in hedge fund risk measurement and portfolio allocation, using monthly hedge fund index return data for the period 1990 ...
  • Dynamic inundation simulation of storm water interaction between sewer system and overland flows 

    Hsu, Ming-Hsi; Chen, Shiuan‐Hung; Chang, Tsang-Jung (Taylor & Francis / Chinese Institute of Engineers, 2002)
    An improved urban inundation model, coupling a 2D non‐inertia overland flow model with a storm water management model, is adopted to simulate inundation in urban areas. The model computes, not only the overland runoff and ...
  • Dynamic moral hazard and stopping 

    Mason, Robin; Valimaki, Juuso (Wiley-Blackwell, 2013-02-13)
    We propose a simple model of optimal stopping where the economic environment changes as a result of learning. A primary application of our framework is the problem of how optimally to sell an asset, when the demand for ...
  • Dynamic Portfolio Construction and Portfolio Risk Measurement 

    Mazibas, Murat (University of ExeterUniversity of Exeter Business School, 2011-09-12)
    The research presented in this thesis addresses different aspects of dynamic portfolio construction and portfolio risk measurement. It brings the research on dynamic portfolio optimization, replicating portfolio construction, ...
  • Dynamical process of switch-off in a supertwisted nematic cell 

    Yang, Fuzi; Dong, Youmei; Ruan, Lizhen; Sambles, J. Roy (American Institute of Physics, 2004)
    The switch-off dynamics of a 180° supertwisted nematic (STN) are explored in detail by using a convergent beam system and the fully leaky guided-mode technique. From the dynamical guided-mode data and using the Ericksen–Leslie ...
  • Dynamics and Morphodynamic Implications of Chute Channels in Large, Sand-Bed Meandering Rivers 

    Grenfell, Michael Cyril (University of ExeterGeography, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, 2012-07-25)
    Chute channel formation is a key process in the transition from a single-thread meandering to a braided channel pattern, but the physical mechanisms driving the process remain unclear. This research combines GIS and spatial ...
  • Dynamics of among-individual behavioral variation over adult lifespan in a wild insect 

    Fisher, David; David, Morgan; Tregenza, Tom; Rodríguez-Muñoz, Rolando (Oxford University Press, 2015-04-29)
    Investigating patterns of among and within-individual trait variation in populations is essential to understanding how selection shapes phenotypes. Behavior is often the most flexible aspect of the phenotype, and to ...
  • Dynamics of Communicating Climate Change Information: Using Mixed Methods to Examine the Perspectives of Scientists, Communicators and Publics 

    Haddad, Hebba (University of ExeterPsychology, 2014-04-04)
    The communication of anthropogenic climate change presents many challenges, for communicators, scientists, policymakers and publics alike. Particularly difficult is the issue of uncertainty, which can include ambiguity ...
  • Dynamics of coupled cell networks: synchrony, heteroclinic cycles and inflation 

    Aguiar, M.; Ashwin, Peter; Dias, A.; Field, M. (Springer Verlag, 2011)
    We consider the dynamics of small networks of coupled cells. We usually assume asymmetric inputs and no global or local symmetries in the network and consider equivalence of networks in this setting; that is, when two ...
  • Dynamics of filaments of scroll waves 

    Biktashev, V. N.; Biktasheva, I. V. (World Scientific, 2014)
    The following sections are included: A Brief History and Motivation; Wave-Particle Duality of Spiral Waves; Perturbative Dynamics of Scrolls, and Tension of Filaments; Scroll Wave Turbulence; Rigidity of Scroll Filaments: ...
  • The Dynamics of Islam and Modernity in Tajikistan: Contemporary Ismaili Discourse 

    Dildorbekova, Zamira Imatovna (University of ExeterInstitute of Arab and Islamic Studies, 2014-04-24)
    This thesis examines the contemporary religious renewal and discourse on modernity of the Shi‘a Imami Ismaili Muslims of Nizari branch (hereinafter Ismaili) in post-Soviet Tajikistan. These developments are set against ...
  • The Dynamics of Political Support in Emerging Democracies: Evidence from a Natural Disaster in Peru 

    Katz, Gabriel (Oxford University Press, 2015-09-01)
    Scholars have argued that adherence to regime principles in emerging democracies can be threatened by the political system’s inability to respond to critical events like natural disasters. However, little is known about ...
  • Dynamics of Stratospheric Sudden Warming Events: Data Analysis and Modelling 

    Beaumont, Robin Nicholas (University of ExeterMathematics, 2014-05-14)
    The polar vortex is a large scale cyclone located in the middle atmosphere near to the planet’s geographic poles. These vortices form during the hemispheric winter and break down in the spring of the following year. They ...
