Jan has done pioneering work in many areas of quantitative finance. He introduced Feynman path integrals as a general paradigm for options, innovated new improved risk management techniques including “Stressed VAR”, devised the theory of optimally-stressed correlation matrices, developed models for interest-rate and equity derivatives plus hybrids, started a firm-wide program for model quality assurance, invented contingent caps, and he co-invented the Macro-Micro yield-curve model that produces realistic time movements of yield curves and connects economics with finance.

His 800-page book “Quantitative Finance and Risk Management, A Physicist’s Approach”, published by World Scientific, is now in its third printing.
