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: o Monte Carlo Methods for Pricing Financial Derivatives o Dynamic Interactivity o Introduction to Mathematica o Programming with Mathematica Check out our complete event list at: http://www.can.nl/events/ Course: Course: Monte Carlo Methods for Pricing Financial Derivatives ____________________________________ October 18 in Amsterdam Within the one day hands-on training course, participants learn how to apply and implement Monte Carlo 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. This makes the course also attractive for someone who is only interested in the implementation of numerical methods. Each topic is accompanied with practical sessions. Participation costs EURO 595,-- per person excluding VAT Registration and more information: http://www.can.nl/events/details.php?id=56 Course: Dynamic Interactivity by Professor Fred Simons ____________________________________________ October 28 in Amsterdam The course is meant for those users of Mathematica who want to have a better insight in the new structures and functions in Mathematica, in particular in dynamic objects. But other topics, such as the completely new and innovative documentation system, new features of graphics, the new function Grid and functions for creating buttons and links, will be discussed as well. Participation costs EURO 95,-- per person excluding VAT Registration and more information: http://www.can.nl/events/details.php?id=48 Course: Introduction to Mathematica by Professor Fred Simons ____________________________________________ October 7 and December 16 in Amsterdam 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. Participation costs EURO 95,-- per person excluding VAT Registration and more information: http://www.can.nl/events/details.php?id=6 Course: Programming with Mathematica by Professor Fred Simons ____________________________________ September 9 in Leuven, September 16 and November 18 in Amsterdam 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.
