2nd IMA Conference on Mathematics in Finance
Date: 18 - 19 June 2015 Location: Chancellors Hotel and Conference Centre, University of Manchester
The purpose of the conference is to bring together academics and practitioners interested in mathematical modelling in finance. We invite researchers whose research work contains a strong Mathematical element to attend. We have included a broad range of topics with the aim to expose participants to models, ideas and techniques that they may not be aware of, and to foster future collaborations.
In recent years many of the underpinning assumptions of classical Mathematical Finance have been under attack, and now efficient markets can no longer be assumed by default. The result is that many more complex real world interactions need to be taken into account, meaning that the techniques and models from other areas such as Real Options and Operations Research will be important for the future of Mathematics in Finance.
We invited papers on the following themes:
- high dimensional problems,
- simulation techniques,
- PDE methods
- market regulation and monitoring,
- competition and investment,
- commodity pricing and risk management
- credit risk modelling
- liquidity risk
- counterparty risk
- game theory
- network optimisation
- revenue management
- optimal investment
