The programme "Advanced Mathematical Methods for Finance" is financially supported by the European Science Foundation. It aims at the development and application of advanced mathematical tools in finance. Stochastic analysis, control theory, differential equations, and numerical methods have been increasingly used for financial modeling, analysis and software development in the last decade. In particular, challenging problems arise for which techniques from various fields must be put together to improve numerical approaches and cope with their computational complexity. The use of sophisticated financial instruments, particularly now with the widespread use of derivatives in almost all aspects of modern commerce, makes the development of such mathematical tools of essential importance for financial institutions of all types - including investment and commercial banks, insurance and fund management companies, regulating bodies, corporate and state treasuries, and hedge funds.
The AMaMeF Programme has two main overall goals. The first is the creation and reinforcement of relationships among European research teams in the fields of stochastic analysis, control theory, differential equations, and other relevant mathematical disciplines, with the purpose of undertaking and carrying out highly innovative interdisciplinary and interactive research in mathematical finance and its applications. The second is the cultivation and maintenance of strong and mutually reinforcing links with the financial services industry in the broadest sense, with a view to further enhancing the impact and influence of mathematical research on the financial industry.
