The topics are usually chosen from current areas of research (e.g. "applications of BSDE in Financial and Actuarial Mathematics"), research topics with practical relevance (e.g. "The mathematics behind Solvency II") or classical areas that could not be covered in a lecture (e.g. reading research papers from the early stages of Financial Mathematics).

Evaluation of grades
The module is not graded (only study achievements)..
Competencies / intended learning achievements
Using prescribed texts, students have learned to work on an advanced topic in the field of financial and actuarial mathematics independently. They are prepared to work on their Master's thesis in the chosen area of specialization.
The literature will be announced upon announcement of the Reading Course.
Requirements for attendance (informal)
Depending on the choice of topic, different courses are required. The requirements will be announced at the announcement of the reading course.
