By Nicole El Karoui on ParisTech Review

How do financial mathematics specialists imagine the markets in five to ten years? What exactly will their role look like? To understand these issues, we need to take a closer look at the way this field has developed and at the issues that have shaped the discipline.
Comment les spécialistes des mathématiques financières voient-ils se redessiner les marchés, à l'horizon de cinq à dix ans ? Et quel rôle joueront-elles alors ? Pour le comprendre, il faut revenir sur la façon dont elles se sont développées et sur les enjeux successifs qui ont façonné la discipline.
