Current research

I am studying asymptotic expansion for a martingale with mixed normal limit. The expansion formula is written by a certain random symbol specified by the Malliavin calculus. It is applied to approximation of the realized volatility. Nonsynchronous covariance estimator gives various problems in limit theorems and practical applications to highfrequent data analysis. Asymptotic expansion for pricing options is still our research area. Recently we are developing methods for highly precise tail approximation. We are making YUIMA II, an objectoriented large scale Rsoftware for statistical analysis and simulation for stochastic processes.
