Dear Mathematica Users, CANdiensten offers general Mathematica and financial mathematics 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.

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.

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.

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.
