The Technical collage of Lisbon (UTL) is celebrating this yr its seventy fifth anniversary. Being a jubilee get together, a whole software of occasions came about, together with a two-day Symposium at the learn at UTL. This Symposium addressed the state-of-art in significant components of excellence at UTL. technology, know-how and innovation and how universities and society typically, create, use and disseminate wisdom have received a growing to be signi?cance during the last a long time. UTL without doubt embeds a suitable capability of excellence in several parts of study in uncomplicated and technologies, which bears its improvement at the foundation of a “research college” version. This e-book comprises the edited model of the invited lectures that have been added via sought after researchers at UTL. This booklet brings jointly in a evaluate demeanour a accomplished precis of top of the range study contri- tions throughout uncomplicated and technologies. The contributing papers are prepared round the following significant parts: – Emergent parts (Nanosciences, Quantic Computations and Infor- tion, hazard and Volatility in monetary Markets); – uncomplicated Sciences (Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Materials); – Social Sciences, Economics and administration Sciences; – existence Sciences and Biotechnology; – Engineering and applied sciences – Nature, setting and Sustainability; – Public wellbeing and fitness, foodstuff caliber and defense; – health and wellbeing and recreation Sciences; – Urbanism, Transports, structure, Arts and layout. The transdisciplinary nature of so much parts goals to emphasize a compelling feel of objective within the paintings developed.

One assumes that the distribution of the return for period t , given past information, is rt Ft 1 ~ D P t ,V t2 (1) where D is the conditional distribution, P t is the conditional mean and V t2 Z D rt 1 P t 1 2 , ( Z ! 0 ,D t 0 ) (2) 26 J. Nicolau is the conditional variance. A large error in period t 1 (that is a high value 2 for rt 1 P t 1 ) implies a high value for the conditional variance in the next period. Generally, P t 1 is a weak component of the model since it is difficult to predict the return rt 1 based on a Ft 2 -mensurable stochastic process P t 1 .
