Multifractal Random Walks With Fractional Brownian Motion via Malliavin Calculus
We introduce a Multifractal Random Walk (MRW) defined as a stochastic integral of an infinitely divisible noise with respect to a dependent fractional Brownian motion. Using the techniques of the Malliavin calculus, we study the existence of this object and its properties. We then propose a continuous time model for financial modeling that captures the main properties observed in the empirical data, including the leverage effect. We illustrate our result by numerical simulations.

Load 1TB in less than 1 hour
This project was done using SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition (with SP1 beta) using the BULK INSERT command with 60 parallel input files, each of approximately 16.67 GB. The best time I got was 50 minutes. Hewlett Packard was kind enough to loan me some time one night on the machine they use to do the TPC-C tests. It is an Itanium2 Superdome with 64 1.6GHZ 9M (Madison) CPUs. For the insert tests the system was equipped with 256GB of RAM. The HP SAN configuration is rated at 14GB per second throughput. You can find the specific configurations at http://tpc.org/tpcc/results/tpcc_result_detail.asp?id=103082701. (Note: The configurations at this site may be updated periodically).
