Participants during the Algebraic Geometry workshop held at the School of Mathematics, College of Biological and Physical Sciences in August 2018

The Nairobi workshops in Algebraic Geometry are organized by two ambitious young algebraic geometers at the University of Nairobi, Dr Jared Ongaro and Dr Damian Maingi, both with recent PhDs supervised by European advisors.  The main objective of the workshops is mentoring research activities in Algebraic Geometry at the School of Mathematics, University of Nairobi.

This research paper forecasts the time-varying weekly beta of ten stocks listed in the Nairobi Securities Exchange 20-Share Index by Bivariate GARCH (1, 1) and Kalman filter methods. A comparison of the forecasting ability of the GARCH model and the Kalman filter method is made. Forecast errors based on the returns on assets are used to evaluate the out-of-sample forecast ability of both methods. Two measures, Mean Absolute Error (MAE) and Mean Squared Error (MSE).

In this study, we investigate the volatility of crude oil prices for the past ten years and then develop a correlation between crude oil prices and historical stock performances of FEA companies. We then use a Student t4 copula to model default probability of the stock prices, since it provides a better fit to market data as compared to the Gaussian copula.

In order to run the company successfully, the fixed and the current assets play a laudable role. Managing the working capital is mandatory because, it has a major significance on profitability and liquidity of the business concern. Usually, it was observed that, if a firm want to take a bigger risk for bumper profits and losses, it minimizes the dimension of its working capital in relation to the revenues it generates. If it is willing to improve its liquidity, that in turn raises the level of its working capital.

The objective of this research is to consider varying unemployment duration in the pricing of unemployment insurance with application to USA data. The study assumes that unemployment duration follows BurrXII mixture distribution while the discount rate to use in the pricing of the scheme will be determined by fitting market data in to the capital asset pricing model.

This project is intended to determine the profitability of App based taxi companies considering their current pricing methods. Taxis are commonly used in towns due to their convenience and comfortability. Unlike other public means of transport, they can be hailed at any time of the day and night and clients can be dropped off at any place. This convenience has caused an increase in the demand for taxi services. As a result, many taxi companies have sprung up. However due to their high costs, taxis were limited to corporations, business individuals and emergency trips.
