Mack Galloway (2006-2010)
Research interests include applications of Levy and time-inhomogeneous additive processes to the pricing of exotic options and credit spreads for default swap indices. The H-selfsimilar additive processes of Sato are only recently being recognized for their use in pricing equity options (exponential selfsimilar additive models). The usefulness of these processes extends beyond that of equity ptions, as they may be used to construct new processes in which modeling of price across maturity is involved.
