On successful completion of this module students should be able to:
Set up mathematical models for modeling random systems over time (stochastic process modeling).
Apply probability and stochastic process theory to model financial models
Analyse and synthesise mathematical models of financial markets.
The module builds on probability and stochastic processes to introduce continuous time stochastic processes aimed at modelling the stock exchange. We aim to derive the Black-Scholes model of arbitrage option pricing.
Binomial branch/tree models
Binomial Representation theorem
The Wiener Process
The Black-Scholes model
