Seminar Quantitative Finance The more complex a problem, the less useful are closed-form solutions, and quantitative methods take their place. Try it yourself! Within the broad field of finance, various problem types exhibit a complexity that can only be tackled by the use of quantitative methods, for instance the monetary valuation of a contract or the numerical analysis of risk measures. This research seminar focuses on scientific and applied problems arising in modern finance and the energy sector. The seminar participants have to work on their own on the specific problem situation, to investigate potential solution approaches and to elaborate a target-oriented quantitative solution method. Their scientific findings and results have to be presented in a professional and comprehensible manner.
