The Isaac Newton Institute programmes

Because of their comparable scope, duration, organizers and participants, the direct academic predecessors for our thematic program are the Financial Mathematics and the Developments in Quantitative Finance programmes held at the Isaac Newton Institute in Cambridge in 1995 and 2005, respectively.

As far as organizing committes go, Chris Rogers provides the intersection between the two INI programmes, whereas Vicky Henderson is the intersection between the second INI programme and our program at Fields.

The intersection between the lists of participants in the three programs is too large to quote, but I would like to single out Stan Pliska, who participated extensively in the 1995 programme as the Prudential Distinguished Visiting Fellow, in the 2005 programme as the Rothschild Professor, and will participate regularly in our program 2010, including as a guest lecturer in one of the graduate course.
