## Performance Measures for Algorithmic Trading

September 28, 2016 By natasakrejic Leave a Comment

Automated Order Execution is the dominant way of executing trade orders for the last couple of years at major stock markets. There is a variety of algorithms that are designed to serve different purposes and traders preferences. In Automated Order Execution a computer-based algorithm is used to buy (or sell) a position while attempting to achieve a benchmark specified by the client. Therefore the selected benchmark is used as a measure of trader's performance. It is undoubtedly difficult to define one standard measure for all trade executions as the objectives can be very different. There are … [Read More...]

## Cryptography and cyber-security at NTNU and the mathematics of electronic elections.

August 22, 2016 By celledoni Leave a Comment

(by Kristian Gjøsteen, Professor at NTNU) Cryptography as a practice is very old, dating back at least 2000 years. The birth of modern cryptography can reasonably be set to 1976, when Diffie and Hellman published their seminal paper «New directions in cryptography» containing the first protocol to allow Alice and Bob to communicate securely without first […]
