Abstract

Mathematical finance forms a modern, attractive source of examples and case studies for classes in scientific computation. I will show here how the Nobel Prize winning Black-Scholes option valuation theory can be used to motivate exercises in Monte Carlo simulation, matrix computation and numerical methods for partial differential equations.
