Abstract:
Longtime correlations in agricultural indices are studied and their behavior is compared to the wellestablished S&P500 index. Hurst exponent and Detrended Fluctuation Analysis (DFA) techniques are used in this analysis. We detected longcorrelations in the agricultural indices and briefly discussed some features specific in comparison to the S&P500 index.

Abstract:
This work is devoted to the study of the statistical properties of financial instruments from developed markets. We performed a new analysis of the behavior of companies corresponding to the DJIA index, and of the index itself, by using a normalized Truncated Levy walk model. We conclude that the Truncated Levy distribution describes perfectly the evolution of the companies and of the index near a crash.

Abstract:
We prove that under minimal conditions the modified Mann and Ishikawa iterations converge when dealing with an asymptotically pseudocontractive map. We give an affirmative answer to the open question from C.E. Chidume and H. Zegeye, Approximate fixed point sequences and convergence theorems for asymptotically pseudocontractive mappings, J. Math. Anal. Appl., 278 (2003), 354366.
