Most of the Trades in Financial Markets Today Are Executed by Computerized Algorithms in a High-Frequency Framework. We Will Study Various Methods to Design Such Algorithms. Most of These Methods Originate in the Area of Stochastic Control, Including Variational and Dynamic Programing Methods. These Methods Will Be Used to Solve Models of Portfolio Liquidation and Market Making, Among Others. Students Will Be Able to: 1.Apply Variational and Dynamic Programing Methods to Solve Stochastic Control Problems That Arise from Algorithmic and High Frequency Trading. 2.Apply the Stochastic Control Methods in Order to Analyse Variations of the Models That Are Studied in the Course Such as Portfolio Liquidation and Market Making.
