    real pity, I used to do portfolio analytics for Bita Plus and SBC; minimax risk
    curves were just my bag etc etc :).

    My math skills are now so degraded I have difficulty reading about conic
    programming using Nesterov's barrier functions etc etc.

  3. This position is for a system administrator (we are going to setup a
    cluster Linux
    for risk computations) but very likely we will have opening for other
    positions, for
    experts in financial computations/risk analysis. So if there is
    somebody interested,
    he can write to . Pretending I am on topic, I
    will add
    that most of our sofware is in Python, whereas all the numerical
    intensive routines
    are in C++.

    basics: do these (*semi*definite?) cones arise in financial
    with time the privileged dimension? Does "cone" here mean
    necessarily with a quadratic cross-section? If so, why is
    that more compelling than the simplexes of more traditional
