SCIENTIFIC CONFERENCE

METHODS 2008

 

Ustroń, Poland

November 19-20 2008

 

CONFERENCE OBJECTIVES

 

A person enjoying experience, intelligence and intuition is often able to come to proper qualitative conclusions without using quantitative methods. A question could be put whether mathematical methods or in general theory are necessary for qualitative considerations. The answer is affirmative, expressing the same statements with the modern mathematics language allows to achieve precision and can sometimes suggest new aspects of considered problems, which lie beyond qualitative considerations.

The situation of modern economics has significantly changed recently. Mathematical models are nowadays broadly used in finance and insurance. Mathematical methods are accompanied by econometrical methods, which enable the verification of hypothesis. Furthermore, the degree of complexity of the modern finance and insurance problems results in the rapid development of computer tools.

         The expert of the 21st century has to move with an easy manner in the frame of economics using

 

mathematical, econometrical and computer methods
