Over the last decade the research area of mathematical finance has become a vibrant field of academic research and an indispensable tool for the financial and insurance industry.
Financial Mathematics has long been a key research area at Humboldt-Universität. The department of mathematics offers an array of undergraduate and graduate courses on mathematical finance and related fields and a variety of research opportunities for students at all levels.
Current research activities at this chair range from theoretical questions in probability theory and optimization arising in modern models of financial markets to quantitative methods for analyzing optimal trading strategies in dark markets.
