MS02: Computational Methods for Finance and Energy Markets

This minisymposium is an activity of the ECMI Special Interest Group (SIG) on Computational Finance. The SIG was launched at ECMI-2014 in Taormina and (together with the ITN-STRIKE network (2013-2016)) organized several sessions of a minisymposium in Computational Finance.

The computational complexity of mathematical models employed in financial mathematics has witnessed a tremendous growth. Advanced numerical techniques are imperative for the most present-day applications in financial industry. The aim of this minisymposium is to present most recent developments of effective and robust numerical schemes for solving linear and nonlinear problems arising from the mathematical theory of pricing financial derivatives and related financial products.
