Abstract

It is well-known that Jonathan Borwein had numerous wide-ranging interests and intellectual persuasions. Moreover, he never stopped only at purely musing a subject, but often concerned himself with its impact on science and society. Jon’s involvement in financial mathematics research is an excellent illustration of these multidisciplinary interests.
