More generally, we also derive an error estimate for an asymptotic expansion around a general partially elliptic diffusion and a more general Wiener functional, which is applicable to various important valuation and risk management tasks in the financial business such as the ones for multi-dimensional diffusion and non-diffusion models. In particular, we take the Malliavin calculus approach, and estimate the error bounds for the Malliavin weights of both the coefficient and the residual terms in the expansions by effectively applying the properties of Kusuoka-Stroock functions. Moreover, a numerical experiment under the Heston-type model confirms the effectiveness of our method***by*Akihiko Takahashi & Toshihiro Yamada**CARF-F-346 Beauty Contests and Fat Tails in Financial Markets***by*Makoto Nirei & Tsutomu Watanabe**CARF-F-345 Complexity of Payment Network***by*Hitoshi Hayakawa**CARF-F-344 Safe Asset Shortages and Asset Price Bubbles***by*Kosuke Aoki & Tomoyuki Nakajima & Kalin Nikolov**CARF-F-343 A Polynomial Scheme of Asymptotic Expansion for Backward SDEs and Option pricing***by*Masaaki Fujii**CARF-F-342 We construct a TÃ¶rnqvist daily price index using Japanese point of sale (POS) scannerdata spanning from 1988 to 2013. We find the following. First, the POS based inflation rate tends to be about 0.5 percentage points lower than the CPI inflation rate, although the difference between the two varies over time. Second, the difference between the two measures is greatest from 1992 to 1994, when, following the burst of bubble economy in 1991, the POS inflation rate drops rapidly and turns negative in June 1992, while the CPI inflation rate remains positive until summer 1994. Third, the standard deviation of daily POS inflation is 1.1 percent compared to a standard deviation for the monthly change in the CPI of 0.2 percent, indicating that daily POS inflation is much more volatile, mainly due to frequent switching between regular and sale prices. We show that the volatility in daily inflation can be reduced by more than 2daily inflation rate 0 percent by trimming the tails of product-level price change distributions. Finally, if we measure price changes from one day to the next and construct a chained TÃ¶rnqvist index, a strong chain drift arises so that the chained price index falls to 10-10 of the base value over the 25-year sample period, which is equivalent to an annual deflation rate of 60 percent. We provide evidence suggesting that one source of the chain drift is fluctuations in sales quantity before, during, and after a sale period***by*Kota Watanabe & Tsutomu Watanabe**CARF-F-341 A New Improvement Scheme for Approximation Methods of Probability Density Functions***by*Akihiko Takahashi & Yukihiro Tsuzuki**CARF-F-340 Speculative Attacks with Multiple Targets***by*Junichi Fujimoto**CARF-F-339 The Structure and Evolution of Buyer-Supplier Networks***by*Takayuki Mizuno & Wataru Souma & Tsutomu Watanabe**CARF-F-338 Optimal Hedging for Fund & Insurance Managers with Partially Observable Investment Flows***by*Masaaki Fujii & Akihiko Takahashi**CARF-F-337 Liquidity Preference And Knightian Uncertainty***by*Kiyohiko G.
