Corporate FIN3101 Finance Dr Hassan Naqvi Tutorial 2 Question 1. Peter Pan, who is a risk averse investor, is deciding how to divide his money between two assets, pickles and corn, which have the following characteristics: Expected Return Standard Deviation Pickles 10% 5% Corn 10% 5% If the returns on pickles are independent of those on corn, what will be the composition of his optimal portfolio? Question 2. Macrosoft Ltd. is considering the purchase of a machine to manufacture skis. The cost of this machine is \$200,000 and it will have a four year working life. The pattern of expected net cash flows, E(NCF), from the new machine is (it is now the beginning of year T): End of Year E(NCF) T 50,000 T+1 65,000 T+2 60,000 T+3 60,000 During last the four years, the firm has been manufacturing skis with a less automated machine. This cost \$100,000 and had realizable values and incremental cash flows which, together with the return on market index were as follows: End of Year Market Value Net Cash Flow Market Index T-4 90,000 25,000 0.10 T-3 80,000 40,000 0.20 T-2 70,000 30,000 -0.02 T-1 55,000 25,000 0.04 The risk free rate over this relevant period was 0.02. Should the new machine be purchased? Question 3. Suppose you compare two recommended trading strategies and find that one strategy yields a higher cumulative return than the other. Does this necessarily imply that the higher-return strategy is a superior strategy? Explain.

Complex AlgebraWhen the idea of negative numbers was broached a couple of thousand years ago, they were considered suspect, in some sense &quot;real.&quot; Later, when probably one of the students of Pythagoras discovered not that numbers such as 2 are irrational

Complex VariablesIn the calculus of functions of a complex variable there are three fundamental tools, the same fundamental tools as for real variables. Differentiation, Integration, and Power Series. I'll first introduce all three in the context of comp

Fourier AnalysisFourier series allow you to expand a function on a finite interval as an infinite series of trigonometric functions. What if the interval is infinite? That's the subject of this chapter. Instead of a sum over frequencies, you will have an

Multivariable CalculusThe world is not one-dimensional, and calculus doesn't stop with a single independent variable. The ideas of partial derivatives and multiple integrals are not too different from their single-variable counterparts, but some of the d
