Financial Mathematics is also known as mathematical finance, analytical finance, using mathematical tools to research finance, carry out quantitative analysis like mathematical modeling, theoretical analysis, and numerical calculation, in order to find financial inherent law and used to guide practice. Financial mathematics can also be understood as the application of modern mathematics and computing technology in the financial field, therefore, financial mathematics is a new cross discipline, development is very fast, is currently very active in the forefront of one. The core content is to study the optimal selection theory and asset pricing theory of investment portfolio under uncertain stochastic environment. Arbitrage, optimal and equilibrium are the basic economic theory and the three basic concepts of financial mathematics.
2. Research Content
(1) Pricing theory of negotiable securities and portfolio
(2) Incomplete market economic equilibrium theory (GEI)
(3) GEI flat balance algorithm, Monte Carlo method in calculation of economic balance point in the application and theory of GEI in the financial macroeconomic regulation and control application, under the condition of incomplete market, under sustainable development theory framework to study natural resources and assets pricing and sustainable utilization of natural resources.
