Financial markets form the source of a vast number of challenging computational problems. These are not only intellectually challenging from the point of view of computational modelling, but the financial sector is also an employer of a significant fraction of graduates of Computer Science, Software Engineering, Artificial Intelligence and Data Science.
This module covers two aspects of the use of computational processing in Finance,
- The use of computation in the analysis of finance algorithmic instruments. This includes the use of statistical analysis and machine learning.
- The computation and programming concepts behind cryptocurrencies.
