Course description

This course gives a first introduction to the main ideas and tools from mathematical finance. It aims at a double audience: mathematicians who want to learn the modelling ideas and concepts for finance, and non-mathematicians who need an introduction to the main tools from stochastics used in mathematical finance. The main emphasis will be on ideas, but important results will be given with (sometimes partial) proofs. To illustrate the theory, practical examples and exercises using the statistics software R will be given.
