• Enseignant(s):
• Titre en français: Méthodes quantitatives pour Actuaires
• Cours donné en: anglais
• Crédits ECTS: 6 crédits
• Horaire: Semestre d'automne 2013-2014, 4.0h. de cours + 1.0h. d'exercices (moyenne hebdomadaire)

• Formation concernée: Maîtrise universitaire ès Sciences en sciences actuarielles

### Objectifs

This course aims at refreshing mathematical notions and techniques and developing complements which will be useful for applications in the fields of actuarial science and finance. The goal is to provide a common base of general techniques of differential and integral calculus and of linear algebra used in the other courses. Many examples drawn for actuarial science will illustrate the necessity for future actuaries to master these skills.
