Titel: Modelling volatility


This presentation is a short review on time series models for the conditional variance. This area of time series analysis has gained popularity since the 1980's and the number of applications to financial time series has recently been growing very fast. I discuss the general structure of such models and take up special cases of univariate models. I consider the ability of conditional variance models to describe stylized facts frequently found in financial time series. Time permitting, I also take up some modelling issues. Multivariate models of conditional variance will also receive attention.
