CSL Lecture Series - Applied Mathematics Karl Menger Lecture
“Financial Bubbles Through History, Viewed Through Mathematics” by Philip Protter, Professor of Statistics, Columbia University
MTCC Auditorium, April 22, 3:15 pm
The history of the western industrialized world is rich with the stories of financial bubbles. Protter will explore how to use mathematics to detect whether a market bubble might be occurring and–in principle—to reduce to some extent the wild swings of the market.
