Dan Stefanica is an applied mathematician specializing in numerical methods for financial applications. He studied methods for fitting smooth yield curves to market data and wrote the book A Primer for the Mathematics of Financial Engineering, based on material taught in the Advanced Calculus refresher course to incoming students of the Baruch MFE Program. In other NSF-funded research with application in finance, he designed fast algorithms for the numerical solution of PDEs, and worked on geophysical fluid dynamic problems. He has a PhD in mathematics from the Courant Institute.
