  Var - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Var was formed in 1790 of a part of Lower Provence, but in 1860 it was reduced by the transfer of the district of Grasse to the newly formed département of the Alpes-Maritimes, which is why the Var River does not now flow in the département to which it gives its name.
Var is bounded on the north by the département of the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence (the Verdon river forming the boundary), on the east by that of the Alpes-Maritimes, on the south by the Mediterranean Sea, and on the west by the département of the Bouches-du-Rhône.
The Var is a diverse region encompassing mountains, beautiful ocean, plains, and valleys.

 In Defense of VAR
His point is that VAR is useless because it is not perfect (unlike measures in the physical sciences).
If a risk manager imposes a VAR system to penalize traders for the risks they are incurring, traders may have an incentive to "game" their VAR.
Institutions that go through the process of computing their VAR are forced to confront their exposure to financial risks and to set up a proper risk management function.

 VaR and Subadditivity
VaR is also holistic in that it focuses assessment on a complete portfolio and not just the individual positions in it.
VaR is expressed in the simplest and most easily understood unit of measure, namely, “lost money.” Many other measures are expressed in less transparent units, such as average period to cashflow.
The failure of VaR to be subadditive is a fundamental problem because it means, in essence, that VaR has no claim to be regarded as a “proper” risk measure at all.

Dunbar's argument that liquidation was driven by a fear of an increase in the multiplier from 3 to 4 is silly i.e.
In a sense VaR was the culprit, because of its failings: (a) it does not take into account liquidity risk; (b) it ignores distributional stability issues and outlying, catastrophic risks, and the fact that financial risk is not stationary.
The sense in which VaR was a culprit: too many people who look at VaR and think that is how bad it can get - rather than planning what their strategy will be once they have lost two or three times the VaR.

 Cyrus' Blather : Linq Specifiqs - var   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Var certainly is confusing, but only to people who are coming from languages with a variant type.
'var' tell us that this is the first use of a variable and that its type is being inferred at this point.
However, I think that var is better only because it is shorter, and you will run less of a risk of conflicts with current code (because you are introducing a new keyword, you have this problem).

 Dan Fernandez's Blog : LINQ: What is the purpose of var?
If you’ve never heard of var, var is a new way to declare variables in C# 3.0 that uses implicit typing.
The distinction here is that var is not the same as object, or the JavaScript “var” data type as it’s actually strongly typed, but inferred from whatever the value is being assigned.
But since you cannot pass around var and its really really rare that you'll process all your data in the same method where you retrieved it using LINQ you'll anyway be forced to create a class to encapsulate the data to pass it back up to the caller

 Introduction to Value at Risk (VAR) - Part 1
You can see how the "VAR question" has three elements: a relatively high level of confidence (typically either 95% or 99%), a time period (a day, a month or a year) and an estimate of investment loss (expressed either in dollar or percentage terms).
Institutional investors use VAR to evaluate portfolio risk, but in this introduction we will use it to evaluate the risk of a single index that trades like a stock: the Nasdaq 100 Index, which trades under the ticker QQQ.
There are three methods of calculating VAR: the historical method, the variance-covariance method and the Monte Carlo simulation.
