Mathematics and Finance: from Theory to Practice - 2006

IMPA, Rio de Janeiro, de 30/10 até 01/11 

The use of sophisticated 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. The conference aims at showing the applications of theoretical advances to practitioners, with a special focus to Brazil.
