Learning outcomes

The course aims to provide knowledge of classic mathematical models for the analysis and evaluation of the main financial operations, financing contracts and economic-financial investment projects. The models discussed also include the one for selecting an optimal investment portfolio in terms of return-risk, in the mean-variance approach.
At the end of the lessons, the student must be able to correctly set up a financial evaluation problem, taking into account the right hypotheses to be posed, the correct choice of mathematical expressions in the financial regime adopted and the correct mathematical methodology for solving the problem itself; therefore the teaching aims to develop the capacity for independent reasoning in the analysis and interpretation of concrete assessment and choice problems. In the lessons there will be a continuous alternation between the treatment of the general aspects of the models of financial mathematics, the illustration of examples of a real nature and the carrying out of exercises which equally propose the study of concrete situations. In exercises, especially in computationally heavy cases, scientific calculation software will be used. As the lessons progress, the students will find further learning exercises on the various topics covered in the course's E-learning pages.
