Reinforcement learning (RL) is an area of Machine Learning (ML) concerned with learning how a software-defined agent should act in an environment to maximize the rewards. Similar to many ML methods, RL suffers from the curse of dimensionality, the exponential increase in solution space with the increase in problem dimensions. Learning the...

Ferrofluid bearings provide a cheap and passive alternative to contactless bearings such as magnetic bearings and fluid bearings. The absence of stick-slip and the low viscous friction make them interesting for high precision applications. Despite the theoretical models available in literature, the number of design rules for ferrofluid bearings...

The purpose of this thesis is to compare the Hull-White short rate model to the Cheyette short rate model. The Cheyette short rate model is a stochastic volatility model, that is introduced to improve the fit of the implied volatility skew to the market skew. Both models are implemented with piecewise constant parameters to match the term...
