courses which might be of interest to you or your colleagues. The 
courses are offered at our training facilities in Amsterdam. 

Upcoming courses are:

(1) Numerical Methods for Pricing Financial Derivatives 
    February 14-15, 2007   - EURO 595 (excl. VAT)

(2) Introduction to Mathematica  10.00-17.00  
    March 6, 2007          - EURO 95 (excl. VAT) 

(3) Programming with Mathematica  
    April 10, 2007         - EURO 250 (excl. VAT) 

(4) Financial Modeling with Mathematica
    April 18-19, 2007      - EURO 595 (excl. VAT) 




(1) Numerical Methods for Pricing Financial Derivatives 
___________________________________________________
 February 14-15, 2007 - EURO 595 (excl. VAT) - Dr. Dimitri Neumann 

 Apply and implement numerical methods to price financial 
 derivatives. The rich functionality available within Mathematica 
 allows to discuss different implementation approaches during the 
 course and to analyze numerical issues arising from the presented 
 methods.

(2)  Course: Introduction to Mathematica 
____________________________________________
 March 6, 2007 - EURO 95 (excl. VAT) -  Prof. Fred Simons

 The course offers an overview of Mathematica's many rich features. 
 The broad knowledge you acquire enables you to explore Mathematica 
 after the course at your own pace.

(3) Course: Programming with Mathematica
____________________________________________
December 19, 2006 - EURO 250 (excl. VAT) - Prof. Fred Simons

All programming language functionality is available in Mathematica. 
Programs written in a standard programming language can be 
translated into a Mathematica program. However, this leads rarely to 
an efficient program. Often we can improve such a translation by 
using some more advanced Mathematica commands. Even better is to 
start from the very beginning and to use the structure of the 
dataset and the available functions in Mathematica for manipulation 
to arrive at the desired output. These principles will be 
demonstrated by many examples. Much attention will be paid to the 
speed of the programs.

(4) Financial Modeling with Mathematica
___________________________________________________
 April 18-19, 2007 - EURO 595,- (excl. VAT) - Dr. Dimitri Neumann

 The course pays much attention to frequently occurring practical 
 tasks such as getting common data structures into Mathematica and 
 exact day calculations.
