Seminar in Mathematical Modelling in Finance and Science
0.5 Credit

This seminar course is designed to develop the capacity to abstract salient features of problems in financial mathematics and the scientific disciplines, and to develop, analyse, and interpret models. Problems from financial mathematics and science, using undergraduate mathematics in modelling and analysis, are studied in detail. Commonality of mathematical methods and structures across disciplines is emphasized. Students work individually and in groups, and produce both written and oral reports on their projects.
