SIAM Financial Mathematics 2023

Recap: CoCalc Takes Philadelphia by Storm at SIAM Financial Engineering and Mathematics 2023 conference.

Greetings from Philly folks! We at CoCalc, are thrilled to take you on a retrospective journey through a few exciting days that we spent at the Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) conference on Financial Engineering and Mathematics held in the City of Brotherly Love.

Renowned stalwarts from the field of finance and mathematics congregated at the conference, sparking enlightening discussions, knowledge exchange and collaborative opportunities. Among the numerous extraordinary talks, several major ones deserve to be highlighted.

Keynote Talks

American Student Loans: Samuel Cohen from the University of Oxford started off the conference with a talk about the US student loans, outlining the unique features and repayment strategies. Highlighting the benefits of income-driven schemes and simple accrued interest, his talk was particularly beneficial for borrowers with large balances.

Sequential Statistics by Trading (E-processes and Coordinated Traders): Martin Larsson from Carnegie Mellon University, USA intrigued us with his insightful talk on the interlinks between sequential statistics, financial mathematics and E-processes.

Unwinding Stochastic Order Flow in a Central Risk Book: Marcel Nutz from Columbia University spoke about the optimal execution problem for the Central Risk Book, a trading unit used in many large financial institutions.

Functional Expansions and Path Dependent Options: Bruno Dupire from Bloomberg LP, gave a thrilling talk on functional Taylor expansions that can be applied on intrinsic value of path dependent options, leading to the Intrinsic Expansion of a function.

Optimal Bubble Riding in a Large Population: Ludo Tangpi from Princeton University captivated audiences with a game-theoretic presentation on optimal liquidation in an asset bubble.
