As the Certificate in Quantitative Finance marks its 11th year we take a look at the history of a program that has built a reputation on delivering far beyond expectations.

'Finance Focus' event: Finance Optimization using the Star-P Parallel Computing Platform
Organised by Wilmott magazine and 7city and sponsored by Interactive Supercomputing presented by Andrew Greenwell 1182 Views

With the age of multi-core having fully arrived, and with many-core processors just around the corner, quantitative analysts are in need of software tools that allow them to harness the computational capabilities and memory capacity of parallel systems. In this presentation, we provide an overview of the Star-P parallel computing platform and its possible uses in quantitative finance for problems with large distributed data sets and task parallel operations. Recent additions to Star-P will be highlighted that have direct benefit to financial modeling problems, including the addition of Statistics and Optimization function libraries, and the integration of Star-P with the Tomlab Optimization platform. A demo of Star-P will also be included in the presentation.
