Abstract: 

We propose to use FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) to solve the nearly insurmountable computational challenges of Financial Network Models. Flow of funds models have been discussed for decades, but recently, the research activity has picked up due to international financial crises and the increased power of computers, mathematics, and economic models to address these crises. We survey many of these developments and discuss how FPGA can provide the critical technology to provide answers fast enough to be useable by managers in banks and regulatory agencies.
