Copyright © 1999 – 2006 Investment Analytics Forecasting Financial Markets – Nonlinear Dynamics Slide: 4 Pareto-Levy Distributions ¾ Levy (1935) generalized Pareto’s law ± Described family of fat-tailed, high-peak pdf’s ¾ Pareto-Levy density functions ± Ln[f(t)] = i δ t- γ |t| α (1+i β (t/|t|)tan( απ /2) ± Parameters α is measure of peakedness β is measure of skewness (range +/- 1) γ is scale parameter δ is location parameter of the mean
