"Computational VaR using Mathematica" 
A seminar devoted to showing how the symbolic, statistical, 
graphical and advanced programming capabilities of the software 
Mathematica can be used to implement the details of the premier 
text on Risk Management, entitled "Value at Risk" by Philippe 
Jorion. This is an outline of the course, designed using original 
programs in Mathematica, which was given by the presenter last 
quarter. The purpose is to exemplify that advanced computing 
techniques make the presentation and teaching of difficult risk 
management ideas easier for students, while providing them with 
examples of re-usable programs for professional risk analysis. 


Dr Michael Kelly is currently a visiting Associate Professor in 
Finance at the Stuart Graduate School of Business, IIT. 
Previously he has held senior academic appointments at 
universities in Australia in Mathematics and Finance. These 
included Senior Lecturer in Mathematics in the School of 
Mathematical Sciences and Senior Lecturer in Finance in the School 
of Economics and Finance at the University of Western Sydney. He 
is also an Honorary Research Associate at the School of 
Mathematics and Statistics, University of Sydney, and has been 
a consultant to businesses for the use of programs such as 
Mathematica and Matlab.
