Hands-On Adjoint Coding


The course provides a hands-on introduction to adjoint algotithmic differentiation (AAD). Both
manual coding of adjoints and the use of an operator overloading AAD tool for C++ (dco/c++) will
be considered. Hybrid schemes include combinations of hand coding and use of operator
overloading as well as integration of local finite difference approximations (bumping) into adjoint
code. Participants are encouraged to bring their laptops in order to draw full benefit from the
interactive hands-on coding sessions. A C++ compiler should be installed. A trial version of
dco/c++ will be distributed. The general adjoint code generation rules are formulated in a
language-independent fashion. We use C++ for examples including the main case study in form
of a LIBOR market simulation.

Market Risk and the Fundamental Review of the Trading Book


The Fundamental Review of the Trading Book is making the quantification of market risk for
regulatory purposes more sophisticated than ever before. This workshop will explain key
concepts underlying both the standardized approach and the internal models approach. It will
also discuss some of the more controversial aspects of FRTB such as the P&L attribution and
non-modellable risk factors.

Modern Option Pricing


In this workshop we will address various aspects and techniques of modern option pricing. We will
introduce mathematical tools, old and new, and explain how they can be used to solve modern
quantitative finance problems. The tools include McKean stochastic differential equations,
backward stochastic differential equations (BSDEs), branching diffusions, linear programming,
machine learning techniques, and optimal transport. They will be applied to a variety of
challenging issues that are crucial for risk-management and model risk assessment: the exact
calibration of models to market smiles; the valuation of derivatives under parameter uncertainty;
the computation of the credit valuation adjustment (CVA) and initial margin (IM) of a large book of
derivatives; and the derivation of model-independent bounds for option prices, given the prices of
vanilla options. Implementation details will be provided, together with illustrative examples.
