ABOUT THE SERIES
The IAFE's Thalesians Seminar Series is a joint effort on the part of the IAFE (www.iafe.org) and the Thalesians (www.thalesians.com). The goal of the series is to provide a forum for the exchange of new ideas and results related to the field of quantitative finance. This goal is accomplished by hosting seminars where leading practitioners and academics present new work, and following the seminars with a reception to facilitate further interaction and discussion.
