Well, I am presently taking a science communication module which requires me to put across the findings of a mathematics research paper in the form of a popular science article. I am not compelled to write about a mathematical finance popular science article but I wanted to write about it since I am interested in mathematical finance (I am also pursuing an undergraduate degree in mathematics and finance)

But as you said, I would rather be spending the time to focus on the foundations of mathematical finance.

@Alan, agreed, I have decided to drop the finance and I am currently writing on voting theory. I do hope it goes well.

Thanks all

Hi,

My name is Galvin and I am a university Freshman.

As part of my university's curriculum, I have been tasked to prepare a popular science article on a mathematics research paper. The target audience of the popular science article is the general public. I would like to write a science article based on a topic from Quantitative Finance/ Mathematical Finance.

I think your best shot it to drop the Finance part.

There are annual popularizations of what's been going on in Mathematics generally:

"The best writing on Mathematics in 19nn" (edited) by M. Pitici

"What's happening in the Mathematical Sciences", vol n, by D. Mackenzie.

To write or edit this kind of thing, you have to be a PhD mathematician and a good writer or a sense for it. However, your task can be to start with Pitici or Mackenzie, and then dumb it down even further. That should be doable. But you'll find very little finance in those sources -- although I do see an article 'Mathematics and the Financial Crisis' in Mackenzie vol 8, copyright 2011.

What about the property crash of 2007?

Of interest to the populace.

Just recall the constraints that it needs to relate to a research paper published in the last five years.

Jon Paulson?

I do find it difficult, if not impossible, to grasp anything close to math finance as an undergraduate freshman.

@cuchuliann, I do not think I will be able to appreciate the paper by Daniel J. Duffy presently.

With regards to my university paper, I suppose I will look at another topic, perhaps fair division...

Nevertheless, I thank ppauper, cuchuliann and bearish for contributing to this discussion.

Yours sincerely,

Galvin

It is a very ambitious project.

- I am only in my first year of undergraduate studies so I am hoping for something more manageable...
- The paper has to be published from the year 2013 onwards, as well as peer-reviewed.

PS: I found Dividend Policy, Growth, and the Valuation of Shares by Author(s): Merton H. Miller and Franco Modigliani to be slightly easier on the mathematics. I'll give it a shot in my free time.

If you have time you could try Monte Carlo. Here's the original MC article by Phelim Boyle.

The target audience of the popular science article is the general public. I would like to write a science article based on a topic from Quantitative Finance/ Mathematical Finance.

However, I am unable to understand many of the research articles found on arXiv.org. As such, may I kindly ask the Wilmott community for recommendations on any Quantitative Finance or Mathematical Finance research papers that can be understood by undergraduates? Any research papers on similar topics that are "undergraduate friendly" would also be appreciated.

I have a basic understanding of undergraduate calculus, linear algebra and real analysis.

Thank you for your attention.

Yours sincerely,

Galvin
