The course presents the main modelling techniques for complex dynamical processes related to financial engineering. Moreover, the course addresses the identification methods necessary to evaluate the parameters present in the presented models.
Knowing the main modelling classes for dynamic processes with attention to those adopted in management engineering; defining a class of candidate models for a specific dynamic process; knowing the features of a parameter identification problem; designing the solution of an identification problem; analyzing the convergence properties of the adopted solution algorithm.
The learning outcomes of the course refer to the capacity of:
The course prerequisites refer to basic elements of systems theory, statistics and optimization.
The course consists in lessons during which the theoretical contents of the course are presented together with the solution of numerical cases and the use of some software frameworks related to the course topics.
