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

  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

  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

  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.

  Participation costs EURO 250,-- per person excluding VAT
