A subscriber asked about the usefulness of finance classes for a quant and for examples on how math is actually used in quantitative finance. I’ll use neural networks, time series, and the Black Scholes as examples of why knowing math is important.
Math is really the language of quantitative analysis while computer science is the language used to have a computer help us getting answers. Statistics is just the theory used to get inference about our data. When you combine math, computer science, and statistics while applying it to financial problems, we get quantitative finance.
