50788-01 - Vorlesung: Computational and Quantitative Finance 3 KP

Semester Frühjahrsemester 2019
Angebotsmuster Jedes Frühjahrsem.
Dozierende Dietmar Maringer (dietmar.maringer@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt Many topics in finance have strong quantitative components, including analytical, empirical, and numerical aspects. This course focuses on the latter. Topics may include (but are not limited to)
* financial modelling (assets, markets),
* asset pricing (including lattice methods, Monte Carlo methods),
* risk management and portfolio optimization,
* trading strategies (static and dynamic, low- and high-frequency).
There will be a strong hands-on component: We will implement numerous concepts and ideas using Matlab.
Lernziele Being able to implement financial concepts using Matlab and being able to solve quantiative problems in finance.
Literatur Handouts will be provided via Adam.

* A Arratia, Computational Finance: An Introductory Course with R, Atlantis Press 2012.
* P Brandimarte, Numerical Methods in Economics and Finance, Wiley, 2nd ed, 2006.
