Jump-diffusion calibration using Differential Evolution

David Ardia, Juan David Ospina & Juan David Giraldo Gomez

Abstract The estimation of a jump-diffusion model via Differential Evolution is presented. Finding the maximum likelihood estimator for such processes is a tedious task due to the multimodality of the likelihood function. The performance of the Differential Evolution algorithm is compared with standard optimization techniques.
