M389: Introduction to Quantitative Analysis in Splash 2018 (Apr. 07, 2018)
In the competitive capital markets, millions of people have made a great deal of money in their own but different ways. Some of those used their splendid mathematical skills to build model and algorithms and stood out from others. In my course, I will teach you some really awesome strategies that are used in Quantitative Finance. However you don't need any financial knowledge because all models is abstracted into pure math problems. Instead of directly teaching, I will motivate you to think of the problem by yourself and give you hints. This will help you formulate your own strategy of breaking the seemingly difficult problems.
