Giới thiệu Dự án CORE: Economics for changing world

(Tác giả: Giang Le)

CORE (Curriculum Open-access Resources in Economics) là một dự án xây dựng lại curriculum đào tạo kinh tế cho sinh viên đại học của một nhóm giáo sư của các trường lớn trên thế giới. Hiện tại nhóm này đã cung cấp một quyển textbook miễn phí và các resource bổ sung khác trên website của họ.

Về cơ bản CORE không nhằm lật đổ kinh tế học chính thống dù không tán thành cách dạy của những quyển textbook phổ biến hiện tại (như quyển của Mankiw). Mục tiêu của CORE là muốn cân bằng hơn các phần lý thuyết rất quan trọng khác nhưng hiện ít được quan tâm (dạy cho sinh viên đại học). Ví dụ games theory, information economics, và một số khái niệm của behavioral economics. Vai trò của Hayek được đề cao hơn nhiều nhưng đồng thời toán vẫn là công cụ quan trọng.

(Generalized) Linear Models and Mixed Models with R

Mô hình hồi quy tuyến tính & Mô hình hỗn hợp (tổng quát hóa) với R

This is a decidedly conceptual introduction to the linear model framework and linear mixed effects models in R. It is intended to be very basic.

Tutorial 1

Tutorial 2

Linear Mixed effect Models are becoming a common statistical tool for analyzing data with a multilevel structure. I will start by introducing the concept of multilevel modeling where we will see that such models are a compromise between two extreme: complete pooling and no pooling

Mixed effects logistic regression is used to model binary outcome variables, in which the log odds of the outcomes are modeled as a linear combination of the predictor variables when data are clustered or there are both fixed and random effects.

The purpose of these notes is to provide a quick introduction to R, particularly as a tool for fitting linear and generalized linear models.

1. Introduction

2. Getting Started

3. Reading and Examining Data

4. Linear Models

5. Generalized Linear Models

6. Conclusion

The goal of this course is to give you the skills to do the statistics that are in current
published papers, and make pretty figures to show off your results. While we will go over the mathematical concepts behind the statistics, this is NOT meant to be a classical statistics class. We will focus more on making the connection between the mathematical equation and the R code, and what types of variables fit into each slot of the equation.

MIT-Topics in Mathematics with Applications in Finance

MIT-Topics in Mathematics with Applications in Finance

A flow diagram of a pricing model.


The purpose of the class is to expose undergraduate and graduate students to the mathematical concepts and techniques used in the financial industry. The course will consist of a set of mathematics lectures on topics in Linear Algebra, Probability, Statistics, Stochastic Processes and Numerical Methods. Mathematics lectures will be mixed with lectures illustrating the corresponding application in the financial industry.

MIT mathematicians will teach the mathematics part while industry professionals will give the lectures on applications in finance. We also plan to organize an optional field trip to visit Morgan Stanley offices in New York.

Goals for the Class

  1. Be able to derive price-yield relationship and understand convexity.
  2. Bootstrap a yield curve.
  3. Compute standard Value At Risk and understand assumptions behind it.
  4. Estimate volatility of an option.
  5. Derive Black-Scholes equations using risk-neutral arguments.
  6. Understand decomposition of matrices in statistics (and probability) point of view, e.g. principle component analysis.
  7. Use statistical techniques and methods in data analysis; understand the advantages and limitations of different methods.
  8. Understand basic limiting theorems and assumptions behind them.
  9. Understand Ito’s lemma and it’s applications in financial mathematics.
  10. Understand Girsanov’s theorem and change of measure.
