Modulets indhold, forløb og pædagogik

Læringsmål

Viden

  • know about quantitative software development with a focus on computational finance
  • know about core models & products: stochastic volatility models, vanilla & exotic derivatives
  • know about numerical treatment of stochastic differential equations (SDEs) and partial differential equations (PDEs)
  • know about Monte Carlo foundations and applications
  • know about Fourier transform pricing
  • calibration (applied numerical optimization, market data)

Færdigheder

  • are able to analyse a given model and apply it on market data
  • are able to develop quantitative software in line with the existing practices in the financial industry
  • are able to perform all stages of the verification and validation (V&V) process in quantitative software development – assessing the results obtained from a financial model

Kompetencer

  • are able to independently develop, analyse, and apply quantitative finance models relevant to a financial problem at hand
  • are able to communicate the results of applying the models appropriate to a given financial problem to non-specialists in the financial industry
  • discuss relative strengths and weaknesses of numerical methods (SDEs, PDEs, Fourier Transform) in relation to financial products (derivatives) and tasks (pricing, hedging, calibration)
