The course consists of a detailed description of continuous and discrete dynamical systems. We shall combine the introduction to the general theory with the consideration of bifurcations and chaos, the most important subtopics. The analysis of appropriate mechanical, physical, economic and biological models is an essential part of almost every lecture of the course. To support the course numerical and computational toolbox will be used.

This course is a fundamental course for any kind of graduate program since its focus is on the scientific research methods. It provides an introduction to the research design as well as ethical issues in scientific research. More specifically, the course provides students with an integrated framework for doing research. Students will gain methodological skills which will assist them in applying to the research process, such as defining the research questions, design and define the research methods, survey design, data inquiries. In this way, the students learn to manage their thesis writing process independently, writing their own research paper. The role of ethics in research, ethical issues in conducting research will be emphasized to assure ethical aspects in scientific research.

Important markets such as commodities or credit derivatives are essentially incomplete. The recent financial crisis has increased even more the importance of pricing and hedging in incomplete markets. Therefore these lectures concentrate on advanced methods of stochastic finance required in the context of incomplete markets. We will consider both, process in discrete and continuous time.

The content of the course covers in particular the following topics: market efficiency, market incompleteness; perfect hedges; equivalent martingale measures; attainable payoffs; asset management; contingent claims; replicating portfolio; dynamical arbitrage theory; arbitrage-free pricing; geometric characterization of arbitrage; von Neumann representation; robust Savage representation; expected utility; fair value; certainty equivalent; risk premium; risk aversion; equilibrium pricing; relative entropy; convex risk measures; robust representation; coherent risk measures; VAR; average VAR; upper/lower hedging prices; superhedging duality; risk indifference pricing; HJB equations; dynamical programming.

This course is an introduction to the mathematical formulation and treatment of problems arising from trade execution in financial markets. When there are costs and constraints imposed on the execution of trades, how to best execute them? The course studies mathematical formulations and solutions of these types of problems.
