2nd IMA Conference on Mathematics in Finance

Date 18 – 19 June 2015
Location 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:

Computational Finance

  • high dimensional problems,
  • simulation techniques,
  • PDE methods

Energy Markets

  • market regulation and monitoring,
  • competition and investment,
  • commodity pricing and risk management


  • credit risk modelling
  • liquidity risk
  • counterparty risk

Operations Research

  • game theory
  • network optimisation
  • revenue management

Real Options

  • competition,
  • optimal investment

Invited Speakers

Rui Carvalho (University of Cambridge)
Tim Johnson (Heriot-Watt University)
Christoph Reisinger (University of Oxford)
Alex Weissensteiner (Technical University of Denmark)
