1 Prerequisites

This set of exercises is written for the students of the lecture “Advanced Empirical Finance: Topics and Data Science”. Needless to say, you should try to solve each question on your own before you refer to my proposed answers. Optimally, you discuss issues with your peers, try to find hints either in the lecture slides or online, optimally by posting your questions on StackExchange or Absalon. Please contact me if you spot typos, mistakes or other issues that deserve more attention.

As an absolute minimum before trying to solve the following exercises, make sure you are familiar with Garrett Grolemund and Hadley Wickhams excellent book R for Data Science. I will make further information or references available on Absalon.
