Topics for Computational Finance

Collection in addition to Seydel's "Tools for Computational Finance"

The page was set up in May 2012. Several topics of computational finance are illustrated and explained. The Topics extend the Tools. Our aim is to provide colored illustrations, which may support understanding. The collection will be extended. Properly quoted, the Topics for CF may be used for teaching purposes.
