Physicists pretend not only to know everything, but also to know everything bet ter. This applies in particular to computational statistical physicists like US. Thus many of our colleagues have applied their computer simulation techniques to ﬁelds outside of physics, and have published sometimes in biological, economic or sociological journals, and publication ﬂow in the opposite direction has also started.

n these lecture notes, a selection of frequently required statistical tools will be introduced and illustrated. They allow to postprocess data that stem from, e.g., largescale numerical simulations. From a point of view of data analysis, the concepts and techniques introduced here are of general interest and are, at best, employed by computational aid. Consequently, an exemplary implementation of the presented techniques using the Python programming language is provided.

Monte Carlo methods are ubiquitous in applications in the finance and insurance industry. They are often the only accessible tool for financial engineers and actuaries when it comes to complicated price or risk computations, in particular for those that are based on many underlyings. However, as they tend to be slow, it is very important to have a big tool box for speeding them up or – equivalently – for increasing their accuracy. Further, recent years have seen a lot of developments in Monte Carlo methods with a high potential for success in applications.

Basic principles underlying the transactions of financial markets are tied to probability and statistics. Accordingly it is natural that books devoted to mathematical finance are dominated by stochastic methods. Only in recent years, spurred by the enormous economical success of financial derivatives, a need for sophisticated computational technology has developed. For example, to price an American put, quantitative analysts have asked for the numerical solution of a freeboundary partial differential equation.

It was in late 1995 to early 1996 (shortly after the birth of his first daughter Claire) that the author first began to read the currently available finance books in order to write C/Cþþ financial software. However, apart fromthe book Options Futures and Other Derivatives by John Hull, he found very little information of practical help and had to trawl through the original journal articles in the Bodleian library for more information. Even then much information on how to implement and test various models was not included.
