Report on Cimpa-Imamis School on Mathematical Finance Hanoi, April 24 to May 4, 2007 (Marc Diener and Huyên Pham) 1. Introduction: why a Cimpa-Imamis School This school is one of the 3 schools that have been planned in the IMAMIS program. This European program has its origin in a CIMPA school in 1998 organized in Ho Chi Min City where Professor A. Piriou, now retired, met 10 Filipino mathematicians. To respond to a demand of these Filipino mathematicians, the CIMPA and professor Piriou asked professors F. and M. Diener to apply for an European project, accepted in 2004. The project involves CIMPA through the organization of 3 schools, one in each Asian partners, Malaysia, Vietnam and Philippines. For each of these 3 schools, the EU financial participation is planned to cover 50% of the total cost. The Malaysian school took place in Kuala-Lumpur in May 2006. This is the second school, the third and last one will take place in Ateneo de Manila University in August 2007. The chosen subjects are topic in Mathematical Finance relevant for teachers and practitioners in Vietnam, Philippines, Malaysia, and other countries in East and South-East Asia. They are topics taught by the lecturers chosen among the most innovative lectures they give in their Master teachings in their home universities. 2. Overview All lectures took place at the Institute of Mathematics, Hanoi (IMH);( the computer sessions took place at an other location.) The planned lecturers were Nicole Elkaroui (Polytechnique), Giles Pagès (Paris 6), Santiago Carillio (Autonoma de Madrid), Wolfgang Runggaldier (Padova, Italy), Francine Diener (Nice), Marc Diener (Nice) and Huyên Pham (Paris 7), that, except for Mrs El Karoui that could not come because of personal reason, all gave lectures. Finally, S. Carilio and G. Pagès were assisted by Alberto Suarez and Jacques Printemps respectively, for adding a computer oriented aspect of their lectures. All the talks have been given in English, part with blackboard support part with video-LCD support. All lecturers also provided hands-out of their lecture and all participants could get a copy of all the computer files that had been prepared by the lecturers. The computer programmes given used MatLab (Suarez) and SciLab (Printems) Expected number of participants was Hanoi: 18, Vietnam (not from Hanoi): 12, ASEAN (not from Vietnam): 13, EU (Lecturers): 8 . Finally, these numbers became 49 people from Hanoi, 14 from Vietnam outside of Hanoi, ASEAN (not in Vietnam) 22, and 8 lecturers. Obviously, the subject attracted many people. The local Coordinator of the School was Nguyen Dinh Cong (Institute of Mathematics, Hanoi, Deputy Director) 3. The purpose When the writer of these lines began his scientific life, the fact that probability was part of Mathematics was still a matter of dispute; only few French mathematicians were aware of the dramatic progress done in the theory of stochastic process, martingale theory or stochastic integrals, and as a consequence, the teaching of probability at high school was at the best related with combinatorics, or at the worse pure magic. At the beginning of the 1970’ a scientific revolution took place when Black and Scholes (rediscovering results already known by Bachelier) introduced models for the behaviour of stock markets in a way that was enough accurate to diminish dramatically the risks on the so called market of derivatives (such as Put and Call options), and Merton, Harrison and Pliska found out the importance of martingales in modelling these markets, and how to turn the very convincing modelling tool called “arbitrage” into effective mathematical models. As a consequence, banks and financial institutions became places that would attract the best mathematicians and would issue a demand of production and better understanding of sophisticate new results of math. Moreover, the problem of hedging risks on derivatives gave natural examples of Itô stochastic integrals and martingale representation theorem. Any institution, including the State, that has to deal with exchange rates or interest rates needs to have a full staff that masters the language of martingales and computations of stochastic integrals, creating a demand of young people to be taught these subjects. As usual, the only way for anyone to keep in touch with the evolution of ideas in a subject is to produce oneself results (i.e. do research) in order to enter the exchange process called scientific communication. When CIMPA asked us to get interested in the Asia Link program of the EU (see next section) it was obvious to us that math for finance could/should be an organising center for a new impulse in higher order mathematics in South East Asia, as it both involves new beautiful mathematics (martingale theory, stochastic calculus) and existing domain of research (Numerical Methods). Moreover, this domain of mathematical knowledge will be supported by the double demand of teaching and applications, as explained above. This school is part of the larger project IMAMIS that has been suggested by CIMPA in 2002. This project, that has been worked out mostly by the Université de Nice Sophia-Antipolis (UNSA) and the University of the Philippines (UP), is a training programme for higher order education scholars, and devoted to the creation of 15 new courses in Applied Mathematics and Information Science. These courses build up the knowledge delivered in a new pluridisciplinary masters programme that is organised in three tracks (Mathematical Finance, Numerical Methods, Information Science). It is funded by the Asia Link programme of EU. It is run in partnership with Ateneo De Manila University, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM), Institute of Mathematics Hanoi (IMH), Université de La Rochelle (ULR), Departimento di Mathematica - Universita di Pisa (UniPisa), Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, and Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris 6), As usual in higher order teaching, we found it necessary, besides the creation of the courses, to initiate a research process that would allow the teachers involved to get access to the scientific communication in that domain and thus keep there knowledge up to date after the end of the two-and-a-half years Asia Link support. In our mind, the Cimpa schools are the ideal tool to allow this process. 4. The lectures 1. M. Diener: Discrete-time models in finance (5h) 2. F.

Other activities Tuesday 24 April: dinner at family Nguyen Van Duc’s Snake Restaurant in Gia Lam. A delicious opportunity to taste seven different ways to enjoi snake meat and bones. When arriving, participants could see the slaughtering of a snake, a dangerous and not so easy task. This provided also a wonderful opportunity to visit a traditional building Monday 30 April and 1st of May are National holidays in Vietnam. This is why there was no break on Wednesdays and that collective tourism was took place on these days, together with Sunday. Here an overview of this less scientific aspect of the School, that provided nevertheless the opportunities of many discussions during the trips in bus, boats, and walks through the National Parc. Sunday 29 April – Monday 30 April 2007 Halong – Catba Island tour: bus to Haiphong, express-boat to Catba, walk through Catba National Parc: most came back completely soaked out by the rain but everybody was happy. Lunch at the Prince Hotel, swimming in the bay. Bus to the Noth of the island, where participants to place in dragon-shaped boats. The leave at sunset from Catba island will certainly one of the touristic climax of this tour that nobody will forget. Diner and night at the luxury Mithrin hotel. Next day, travel through the famous islands of Halong Bay with visit to one of the spectacular caves hidden in them. Visit to a small floating fish farms. See food on the boat heading back to Halong, bus travel back to Hanoi. Tuesday 1 May 2007 City tour: Temple of Literature, Tran Quoc Pagoda and Bat Trang Pottery Village. The temple of Literature gave a good opportunity to get in touch with one of the origins of merit bases access to knowledge. Thursday 3 May: closing banquet at Nikko hotel. After the sumptuous dinner, several participants offered spontaneous song performances that enjoyed everybody. Friday 4 May 2007: Visit to Trang An Securities Joint Stock Company. This visit involved only three participants of the school: L u Hoàng c, Francine Diener and Marc Diener. This gave us the opportunity to have a better understanding of the present (and rapidly changing) state of Securities exchanges in the country. 6. List of Participants 1.

We received many reaction of participants expressing the fact that thanks to this school they understand now that sophisticate mathematics were needed in modern finance. For those who were already conscious of this evolution this school was a good occasion to see how the most recent topics in finance can be taught at Master level. This gave all the opportunity to build up collaboration schemes. This has already produced an partnership in applying for an Erasmus Mundus Action 4 proposal submitted to the European Commission. If it is accepted, ti will allow new meetings in the near future. This school will also influence the teaching of applied math in the represented countries in the spirit of the Internations Master in Apllied Mathematics and Information Sciences (Imamis). Thanks to a ForMath Vietnam, several Vietnamese Master students in Europ had the opportunity to have a contact with their home institutions. This school helped them to understand the importance of keeping on studying at a higher level and to engage themselves in a Doctorat programme. Finally, this school will promote the research on mathematical Finance at the Department of Probability and Statistics of the Institute of Mathematics in Hanoi, as well as collaboration with other academic and educational institutions in Vietnam
