  • Writer's Block - Unreal Blog
    lazy I was working on a few plugins and web applications during this time Such work always starts off small but ends up taking up an inordinate amount of time as most programmers know But it was fun learning the relatively new techniques of the twitter bootstrap framework and responsive design I called it relatively new because in the fast moving world of the web nothing stays new for long In fact some of my clients have already started calling my designs dated What can I say I myself am a bit dated these days Another reason for staying away from blogging is the fact that this Unreal Blog was becoming far too diverse not focused at all in its theme So I am starting up two new blogs WP for WordPress plugin development and blogging related subjects and Ads EZ for e commerce advertising and other web related applications Unreal Blog will focus mainly on physics and philosophy with occasional forays into conspiracy theories and such That brings me back to the theme of this blog Just before I decided to maintain radio silence I had two streams of posts one on 911 Conspiracy Theories and the other on the Existence of God In the coming days I will wrap up these two topics and move on to something lighter Or something more philosophical And Unreal Photo by FindYourSearch Share this Click to share on Reddit Opens in new window Click to share on Voat Opens in new window Click to share on Facebook Opens in new window Click to share on Twitter Opens in new window Click to share on LinkedIn Opens in new window Click to share on Google Opens in new window Click to share on Tumblr Opens in new window Click to share on Pinterest

  • Risk - Wiley FinCAD Webinar - Unreal Blog
    mathematical concept of probability But even in finance you have one kind of risk that is always negative it is Operational Risk My professional interest right now is in minimizing the operational risk associated with trading and computational platforms How do you measure Risk Measuring risk ultimately boils down to estimating the probability of a loss as a function of something typically the intensity of the loss and time So it s like asking What s the probability of losing a million dollars or two million dollars tomorrow or the day after The question whether we can measure risk is another way of asking whether we can figure out this probability function In certain cases we believe we can in Market Risk for instance we have very good models for this function Credit Risk is different story although we thought we could measure it we learned the hard way that we probably could not The question how effective the measure is is in my view like asking ourselves What do we do with a probability number If I do a fancy calculation and tell you that you have 27 3 probability of losing one million tomorrow what do you do with that piece of information Probability has a reasonable meaning only a statistical sense in high frequency events or large ensembles Risk events almost by definition are low frequency events and a probability number may have only limited practical use But as a pricing tool accurate probability is great especially when you price instruments with deep market liquidity Innovation in Risk Management Innovation in Risk comes in two flavors one is on the risk taking side which is in pricing warehousing risk and so on On this front we do it well or at least we think we are doing it well and innovation in pricing and modeling is active The flip side of it is of course risk management Here I think innovation lags actually behind catastrophic events Once we have a financial crisis for instance we do a post mortem figure out what went wrong and try to implement safety guards But the next failure of course is going to come from some other totally unexpected angle What is the role of Risk Management in a bank Risk taking and risk management are two aspects of a bank s day to day business These two aspects seem in conflict with each other but the conflict is no accident It is through fine tuning this conflict that a bank implements its risk appetite It is like a dynamic equilibrium that can be tweaked as desired What is the role of vendors In my experience vendors seem to influence the processes rather than the methodologies of risk management and indeed of modeling A vended system however customizable it may be comes with its own assumptions about the workflow lifecycle management etc The processes built around the system will have to adapt to these assumptions This is not a bad thing

    teleological argument comes from a potentially wilful distortion of the anthropic principle The next one that Dr Craig puts forward is the origin of morality which has no grounding if you assume that atheism is true Continue reading atheism craig Debates god hitchens Debates Philosophy Physics Atheism Christian God or Lack Thereof April 21 2015 manoj Prof William Lane Craig is way more than a deist he is certainly a theist In fact he is more than that he believes that God is as described in the scriptures of his flavor of Christianity I am not an expert in that field so I don t know exactly what that flavor is But the arguments he gave do not go much farther than the deism He gave five arguments to prove that God exists and he invited Hitchens to refute them Hitchens did not at least not in an enumerated and sequential fashion I plan to do here Continue reading atheism craig Debates god hitchens Philosophy Atheism Is There a God April 13 2015 manoj Recently I have been listening to some debates on atheism by Christopher Hitchens as recommended by a friend Although I agree with almost everything Hitchens says said rather because he is no longer with us I find his tone bit too flippant and derisive for my taste much like The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins I am an atheist as those who have been following my writings may know Given that an overwhelming majority of people do believe in some sort of a supreme being at times I feel kind of compelled to answer the question why I don t believe in one Continue reading atheism Debates god hitchens tony blair Debates Quantitative Finance The Wilmott Magazine Risk Wiley FinCAD Webinar October 11 2011 manoj This post is an edited version of my responses in a Webinar panel discussion organized by Wiley Finance and FinCAD The freely available Webcast is linked in the post and contains responses from the other participants Paul Wilmott and Espen Huag An expanded version of this post may later appear as an article in the Wilmott Magazine What is Risk When we use the word Risk in normal conversation it has a negative connotation risk of getting hit by a car for instance but not the risk of winning a lottery In finance risk is both positive and negative At times you want the exposure to a certain kind of risk to counterbalance some other exposure at times you are looking for the returns associated with a certain risk Risk in this context is almost identical to the mathematical concept of probability But even in finance you have one kind of risk that is always negative it is Operational Risk My professional interest right now is in minimizing the operational risk associated with trading and computational platforms How do you measure Risk Measuring risk ultimately boils down to estimating the probability of a loss as a function of something typically the
