ABOUT CoFES 2015-02-07T21:01:07+00:00

The Center for Computational Finance and Economic Systems is dedicated to the quantitative study of financial markets and their ultimate impact on society. CoFES represents a cooperative effort between the Gerorge R. Brown School of Engineering, the School of Social Science and the Jesse H. Jones School of Business. Through research and education CoFES will advance the boundaries of modeling and computational science in this important arena. CoFES represents Rice University’s commitment to this important area of intellectual inquiry. A key component of the center is the integration of probabilistic and statistical modeling for complex, multidisciplinary investigations. Rice University is well suited for this endeavor because of its exceptionally bright student body; its distinguished faculty in engineering, statistics, business and economics; its world-class resources in high-performance computing; and an unusually flexible and collegial environment in which to pursue interdisciplinary research and education.
