Risk and Stochastics Seminars

The Risk and Stochastics Seminar aims to further communication and discussion of research in the mathematics of insurance and finance and their interface, to further interaction between practice and theory in these areas, and to support academically students in related programmes at postgraduate level. All are welcome to attend. Sessions run regularly during LSE terms, and usually take place on Thursdays at 5.15 pm in Room B617 (Leverhulme Library) on the 6th floor in Columbia House, Aldwych 69.
