Following
the “teaching
by other means” directive issued by the University of Toronto on March 13,
class on Monday will be done on line; you can access
it using the following instructions

This is an
introductory course to a variety of topics in Mathematical Finance; the
objective of the course is to give students a broad view of the field. The
themes developed in the course include bond and fixed income mathematics, asset
and derivative pricing, credit risk, investments and hedge funds. The course is
cross-listed as an undergraduate course and a graduate
course. The course has a textbook on the Tophat
platform, which also contains all the presentations given in class.

The TA
for this course is Jonathan Mostovoy, who can be
reached at mostovoy@math.toronto.edu

He will
hold office hours TBD in BA7256.

The
course has a facebook page linked to the email
address

While
this will not be an official communication channel for the course, in the past it
has proved to be a valuable system to issue occasional announcements quickly,
and some students use that as a venue to ask questions in a manner that will be
visible to other students. If you do use it for that purpose, I will try to
answer in a timely fashion, but please make communications open so others can
see my answers.

For assignment 1, students will need
to access Canadian bond price data, which can be obtained in the link below:
