Ideas:
“  In my research I derive analytic representations for derivatives prices and market scenario evolution. The method relies on a novel application of operator expansion theory. Interest rates, credit intensities and possibly volatilities are assumed stochastic. For a given multi-factor model a pricing kernel is derived, either in closed form or as a power series in the interest rate or credit intensity, exploiting its smallness. This can then be used to derive by standard procedures prices and risk measures for derivative instruments with survival- or default-contingent cash flows.  ”
