BSAC Technology Seminar - Radio Frequency Microsystems for 5G and IoT-Inspired Front End Signal Processing

Seminar | July 31 | 12-1 p.m. | 540 Cory Hall

 Prof. Songbin Gong, Assistant Professor, University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign, Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering

 Berkeley Sensor & Actuator Center

5G and IoT have sparked interest in next generation front ends that meet stringent performance, scalability, and power consumption requirements. New RF microsystems that enable signal processing functions with unprecedented performance specifications will be discussed, as well as MEMS resonators, transformers, gyrators, etc. developments, and overcoming bottlenecks to commercialization.

  RSVP online by July 30.

Seminar 217, Risk Management: A Term Structure Model for Dividends and Interest Rates

Seminar | July 31 | 2-3:30 p.m. | 1011 Evans Hall

 Speaker: Damir Filipović, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne

 Consortium for Data Analytics in Risk

Over the last decade, dividends have become a standalone asset class instead of a mere side product of an equity investment. We introduce a framework based on polynomial jump-diffusions to jointly price the term structures of dividends and interest rates. Prices for dividend futures, bonds, and the dividend paying stock are given in closed form.
