Modern portfolio theory (MPT), or mean-variance analysis, is a mathematical framework for assembling a portfolio of assets such that the expected return is maximized for a given level of risk. It is a formalization and extension of diversification in investing, the idea that owning different kinds of financial assets is less risky than owning only one type. 1 Global optimization and the Bayesian approach.- What is global optimization?.- Advantages of the Bayesian approach to global optimization.- 2 The conditions of Bayesian optimality.- Introduction.- Reduction to dynamic programming equations.- The existence of a measurable solution.- The calculation of conditional.
