Introduction to the Mathematics of Finance

You may wish to visit the module list for information on current teaching. A stochastic process is a mathematical model for phenomena unfolding dynamically and unpredictably over time.

This module studies two classes of stochastic process particularly relevant to financial phenomena: The module develops the properties of these processes and then explores their use in R.j.willimas.


A key problem considered is that of the pricing of a financial derivative such as an option giving the right to buy or sell a stock at a particular price at a future time. What is such an option worth now?

Martingales and stochastic integration are shown to give powerful solutions to such questions. There are no prerequisites for this module.
