The RiO 2018 conference in mathematical finance, organized by IMPA, was held in Buzios, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on 24-28 November 2018, to celebrate the 60th birthday of Bruno Dupire, one of the most influential figures in the history of financial derivatives. The event gathered a number of leading scientists and professionals in one of the most productive and satisfying conferences of the year.
As one of his original alumni, I was given the responsibility to retrace some of Bruno’s ground breaking innovations, and, as a lecturer in Volatility, put them in perspective in the context of volatility modeling and derivatives trading.
Antoine Savine is a French mathematician, academic and a leading derivatives research professional with Danske Bank in Copenhagen. Antoine also teaches Volatility and Computational Finance at Copenhagen University. He is the author of Modern Computational Finance with John Wiley and Sons.
Antoine holds a PhD in Mathematics, and is best known for his work on volatility and interest rate models. He was influential in the development of cashflow scripting, the application of generalized derivatives to volatility, and the wide adoption of AAD in financial systems.
