Program: Twenty-seven one-hour lectures, afternoon tutorials and guided projects carried out by the participants. The course presents fundamental results in infinite-dimensional Convex and Variational Analysis along with selected applications in Finance and Economics. Afternoon tutorials, guided projects, scientific talks, social program and sightseeing in Manhattan.
Special Focus: Risk measures - representation, optimization, extensions.
Prerequisites: Basic knowledge in Linear Algebra, Analysis and Probability. Some knowledge in Functional Analysis (Banach spaces) is helpful, but not required.
Registration: At this stage, please email your interest to Professor Hamel. The final registration will include a fee of $200 for Yeshiva and $400 for non-Yeshiva students which count towards the expenses, and we will also ask for a short CV and a recommendation letter written by a professor/supervisor.
