Abstract

Financial modeling is both art and science, fulfilling society’s need to visualize and understand the business system in such a way as to make sense to the human mind. This occasional paper pragmatically traces the art and science of financial modeling from patterns to geometric constructs that practitioners and theoreticians view as works of beauty.
