The use of
mathematical tools in financial engineering ranging from partial
differential equations to stochastic analysis and numerical methods has
been growing steadily during the past few decades. On the one hand, the
mathematical tools and results have impacted the way financial
phenomena are modeled and understood, and how risk is assessed and
managed. On the other hand, the financial industry has been presenting
a number of mathematical and computational challenges to researchers.
We will precede the conference with two days of minicourses. The minicourses will be aimed at both practioners and students.
