Stochastic Processes for Finance

Engineering students interested in a survey of the mathematical theory of probability and statistics should consider the pair STAT W3105: Probability theory and W3107: Statistical inference. Students seeking a quicker overview that focuses more on probability theory should consider SIEO W4150. STAT W4105 and W4107 are the equivalent of W3105 and W3107, respectively; but graduate students may not register for W3105 and W3107. STAT W4109 (6 pts) covers the same material as W3105 and W3107 in a single semester. STAT W4315: Linear regression models takes W3105 and SEAS 2009–2010 W3107 as prerequisites; like other advanced ...
Instead of dealing with only one possible reality of how the process might evolve under time (as is the case, for example, for solutions of an ordinary differential equation ), in a stochastic or random process there is some indeterminacy in its future evolution described by probability distributions. This means that even if the initial condition (or starting point) is known, there are many possibilities the process might go to, but some paths may be more probable and others less. In the simplest possible case ( discrete time ), a stochastic process amounts to a sequence of random variables known as a time series (for example, see
2010 IAFE Annual Conference Recap | Quant Network
So yesterday I attended the International Association of Financial Engineers Annual Conference. It was truly an amazing event. Some of the greatest minds in the world presented. The speakers included, Andrew Lo, Richard Roll, John Hull, Mark Flannery, and many others. The event was held at Goldman Sachs building on New Slip in the financial district of New York City. Here is a recap of few of the talks and what went on majorly. Thanks to Stefan and Vladimir, Baruch MFE Current Students/Alumni for showing up. Also, thanks to the upcoming students, Billy, Amanda, William and David for coming too. This event was sponsored by Quant ... market research, surveys and trends

Stochastic Calculus - can anyone recommend good books for a ...
To be honest i didnt pay that much attention in math, and it was more computational stuff - pdes etc than any stochastic/statistical stuff. I have done 2 probability courses in my engineering degree, with themes that touch on stochastics (and lots of computation with matlab). I am currently reading "Elementary Stochastic Calculus" by Thomas Mikosch (, but still finding i need to take too many intellectual leaps of faith. Ideally i'd like to be reading something like "Concepts and Practice of Mathematical Finance" by Joshi ( Short of actually going back to school, do ...
Where can I find which quantitative/technical skills are hot, and ...
I'm starting to plan for a career after college in a quantitative/technical field, such as quantitative finance or software. As I plan out what classes I will take for the rest of college, and what things I will learn in my spare time, it would be extremely useful to know what the most promising and valuable technical skills are. I have many different math, computer science, and engineering classes to choose from, and want to know what will be most useful and versatile when I finish college and want to get an industry job. (One indicator is that at my school, I have worked around some research groups who seem to be ...
