Workshop : "Computational Finance"


    Period : August 10(Mon) - 12(Wed), 2009
    Place :
Room 110, Building No.3, Faculty of Science, Kyoto University
    Program : http://elis.sigmath.es.osaka-u.ac.jp/~kohatsu/program.txt
    Organizer : Arturo Kohatsu-Higa (Osaka University)
    The aim of the workshop is to review recent advances in the area of numerical methods for financial problems and stochastic differential equations and its numerical analysis. As an important subtopic of the workshop we will devote some discussion on the Kusuoka scheme, cubature method on Wiener space and rough path analysis.
    This activity is sponsored by the International Research Project on Mathematical Finance of RIMS, 2009, and they are sponsored by the Ito Research Division of Mathematical Analysis, supported by Nomura Holdings, Inc.
    This activity is a satellite workshop of the "Stochastic Analysis for and from Finance", Kyoto 2009 (August 3-7). There will be another satellite workshop on Mathematical Finance (August 13-15) organized by Prof. Jun Sekine.
