## Maybe a Financial Math section?

I was thinking it would be a good idea if this forum has a little sub-forum for financial math or financial engineering?

We could include algorithms, and advanced models and a whole bunch of things that are related to financial math.

I have the credentials to mod it, but of course don't have the posts :).

Anyways, just a suggestion.

It's great that we get an expert on financial maths here; perhaps you could pique the interest by posting a tutorial/survey of the topic?

The best thing to do would be to start a thread about it and see if you can find enough people to participate. Getting a new specialty area going may take awhile for enough people to find it and participate. By posting a useful tidbit every few days you can keep your thread active long enough to test the waters.
 Thanks to both of you :) I think this would be a great addition to PF, since there are no good forums out there on Financial math. I started my own financial/hedge/risk management forum, but it never took off. lol Maybe insted of a Mod, I could be an "Advisor" or "Homework Helper" like other people have in here :) Thanks again, EDIT: EVO - That is a good idea - Can you or a mod give me some guidelines, and what section would it be best in? :)

I'll send it right over

Well, if this thing happens, I plan to help out as much as possible! I really look forward to it :)

Just want to get some mods to reply and tell me what I should do to test the waters.

Thanks again, take care.
 Mentor You could always start a thread in the general maths forum, and aim to write it as a sort of introduction/discussion thread about financial mathematics. If it fits better in another section, then a mentor will move it.
