Financial mathematics
Financial mathematics is the branch of applied mathematics concerned with the financial markets. The subject naturally has a close relationship with the discipline of financial economics, however the subject is narrower in scope and more abstract. A central difference is that whilst a financial economist might study the structural reasons why a company may have a certain share price, a mathematician may take the share price as a given, and attempt to use stochastic calculus to obtain the fair value of derivatives of the stock.
