In Excel, MATLAB or other useable statistics package, the final project deliverable must:
Be able to calculate long-run means of data provided.
Be able to calculate the speed of mean-reversion of data provided.
Be able to calculate the standard deviation of data provided.
Be able to calculate the correlation coefficient between Brownian motion for provided data and other parameters.
Be able to calculate the rest of the parameters specific to the model
There is one variable that is specifically of concern in this project. The variable is a free variable estimated from data, for which we do not know the formula or calculation. We understand the variables from which it is derived, but do not have a full understanding of their relationship. Programmer should be able to implement a randomization search in which they, using different variables, search for the optimal solution. We can provided expected output, and believed input variables.
I will provide more details upon bidding, along with the academic document you need to evaluate your ability to complete this project. I can provide the entire final calculated outputs (i.e. the expected output), and your final calculations in excel must match these calculated outputs, otherwise the model will be deemed incomplete. The model must also be able to take data input to calculate the data inputs for different data sets. YOU MUST HAVE A FINANCE, STATISTICS AND EXTENSIVE MATH BACKGROUND TO COMPLETE THE PROJECT. DO NOT APPLY IF YOU DO NOT MEET THIS REQUIRMENT.
If the project is delivered successfully I will send payment for services rendered. I will not send partial payment for and incomplete project, your bid is considered acceptance of this stipulation. This project will be billed hourly at a rate of 20/hr, with a maximum of 50 hours allowable, please considered these project parameters when bidding.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
The platform can be any statisitics package executable on Windows XP Service Pack 2, with the ability to output functions to Access or a *.mdb file.
