On the adiabatic limit of Hadamard statesSep 10 2016We consider the adiabatic limit of Hadamard states for free quantum Klein-Gordon fields, when the background metric and the field mass are slowly varied from their initial to final values. If the Klein-Gordon field stays massive, we prove that the adiabatic ... More

Long-distance quantum key distribution with imperfect devicesOct 30 2012Apr 08 2013Quantum key distribution over probabilistic quantum repeaters is addressed. We compare, under practical assumptions, two such schemes in terms of their secure key generation rates per quantum memory. The two schemes under investigation are the one proposed ... More

Valuation of contingent convertible catastrophe bonds - the case for equity conversionApr 21 2018Within the context of the banking-related literature on contingent convertible bonds, we comprehensively formalise the design and features of a relatively new type of insurance-linked security, called a contingent convertible catastrophe bond (CocoCat). ...

Measurement-device-independent quantum key distribution with ensemble-based memoriesJul 30 2014Nov 25 2014Quantum memories are enabling devices for extending the reach of quantum key distribution (QKD) systems. The required specifications for memories are, however, often considered too demanding for available technologies. One can change this mindset by introducing ... More

What does past correlation structure tell us about the future? An answer from network filteringMay 28 2016We discovered that past changes in the market correlation structure are significantly related with future changes in the market volatility. By using correlation-based information filtering networks we device a new tool for forecasting the market volatility ... More

Risk diversification: a study of persistence with a filtered correlation-network approachOct 21 2014The evolution with time of the correlation structure of equity returns is studied by means of a filtered network approach investigating persistences and recurrences and their implications for risk diversification strategies. We build dynamically Planar ... More

Bootstrapping topology and systemic risk of complex network using the fitness modelSep 28 2012We present a novel method to reconstruct complex network from partial information. We assume to know the links only for a subset of the nodes and to know some non-topological quantity (fitness) characterising every node. The missing links are generated ... More

Low Complexity Indoor Localization in Wireless Sensor Networks by UWB and Inertial Data FusionMay 07 2013Precise indoor localization of moving targets is a challenging activity which cannot be easily accomplished without combining different sources of information. In this sense, the combination of different data sources with an appropriate filter might improve ... More
