The opening of the Financial Mathematics Global Seminar 2021/2022Global Seminar is an interfaculty event of the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics and the Moscow School of Economics of Moscow State University, organised by the Vega Institute Foundation. It is headed by Professor Yuri Kabanov from the Department of Probability Theory of Moscow State University.
The program of the Global Seminar for the 2021/2022 academic year includes the talks from the world's leading experts in the field of financial mathematics.
