Aims and Fit of Module
This course will provide a survey of numerical methods commonly used for mathematical finance with emphasis on certain computational schemes crucially important. This includes random number generation, interpolation, integral and differential equations, optimization, and simulation. Also aims to realize the numerical algorithm in computing languages such as Matlab or C++
