Applications to the valuation and hedging of American-style and game options are presented in some detail. A definite bonus is the very extensive list of references which gives the reader a most welcome basis from which to explore further the realm of mathematical finance. This book will appeal to practitioners and students who want an elementary introduction to these areas. As a consequence, hedging of plain-vanilla options and valuation of exotic options are no longer limited to the Black-Scholes framework with constant volatility. . It will also be useful for students and postgraduates who are taking their first steps in these intriguing and attractive fields.

In the 3rd printing of the 2nd edition, the second Chapter on discrete-time markets has been extensively revised. The authors' perspective throughout is that the choice of a model should be based on the reality of how a particular sector of the financial market functions. Concerning this new development, there presently exist only research articles and two books, one of them an edited volume, both being written by researchers working mainly in practice. Concrete applications to real-world pricing problems are also provided. When only special cases or models are provided, the authors give useful references that will help researchers to obtain even more insight in the topics.

The theme of stochastic volatility also reappears systematically in the second part of the book, which has been revised fundamentally, presenting much more detailed analyses of the various interest-rate models available: the authors' perspective throughout is that the choice of a model should be based on the reality of how a particular sector of the financial market functions, never neglecting to examine liquid primary and derivative assets and identifying the sources of trading risk associated. This book is a comprehensive and up-to-date presentation of the martingale approach for pricing and hedging derivative securities. The book contains a wealth of material expressed in a clear mathematical way. This book is an impressive work of scholarship in mathematical finance in the area of option pricing. Sprache: Englisch Gewicht in Gramm: 900 Large 8vo.

Proofs of several results are simplified and completely new sections on optimal stopping problems and Dynkin games are added. The book may have minor markings which are not specifically mentioned. As a consequence, hedging of plain-vanilla options and valuation of exotic options are no longer limited to the Black-Scholes framework with constant volatility. The authors' perspective throughout is that the choice of a model should be based on the reality of how a particular sector of the financial market functions. All of the pages are intact and the cover is intact and the spine may show signs of wear. Mathematical and financial language is used so as to bring mathematicians closer to practical problems of finance and presenting to the industry useful maths tools.

The main emphasis is on models that can be made consistent with market pricing practice. A definite bonus is the very extensive list of references which gives the reader a most welcome basis from which to explore further the realm of mathematical finance. In particular, it should concentrate on defining liquid primary and derivative assets and identifying the relevant sources of trading risk. This book is an impressive work of scholarship in mathematical finance in the area of option pricing. This book provides a comprehensive, self-contained and up-to-date treatment of the main topics in the theory of option pricing. This book is a comprehensive and up-to-date presentation of the martingale approach for pricing and hedging derivative securities. In summary, the book gives a very broad insight into advanced modern financial mathematics, in particular fixed income models.

Mathematical and financial language is used so as to bring mathematicians closer to practical problems of finance and presenting to the industry useful math. This book provides a comprehensive, self-contained and up-to-date treatment of the main topics in the theory of option pricing. By showing how to combine the high-level elegance, accessibility, and flexibility of Python, with the low-level computational efficiency of C++, in the context of interesting financial modeling problems, they have provided an implementation template which will be useful to others seeking to jointly optimize the use of computational and human resources. The passage from discrete- to continuous-time models, done in the Black-Scholes model setting, assumes familiarity with basic ideas and results from stochastic calculus. The presence of many explicit formulae, for various types of derivatives, will make this book attractive to practitioners; and its breadth of content will make it useful for anyone who considers research in mathematical finance. Proofs of several results are simplified and completely new sections on optimal stopping problems and Dynkin games are added.

In the 2nd edition, some sections of the former Part I are omitted for better readability, and a brand new chapter is devoted to volatility risk. The book can be used ideally both as an introductory and as an advanced text on mathematical finance. In the 3rd printing of the 2nd edition, the second Chapter on discrete-time markets has been extensively revised. Financial engineers implement models from a mathematical representation of an asset's performance by building a program that performs a valuation of securities based on this asset. However, an Appendix containing all the necessary results is included. In the 2nd edition, some sections of the former Part I are omitted for better readability, and a brand new chapter is devoted to volatility risk.

However, an Appendix containing all the necessary results is included. An outline of the general theory of arbitrage pricing is presented. Applications to the valuation and hedging of American-style and game options are presented in some detail. The aim of this book is to concentrate primarily on the methodological side, thereby providing an overview of the state-of-the-art and also clarifying the link between the new models and the classical literature. The second part of the text is devoted to the term structure modelling and the pricing of interest-rate derivatives. In summary, the book gives a very broad insight into advanced modern financial mathematics, in particular fixed income models. Appendices: Conditional Expectations, ItÃ´ Stochastic Calculus.

On the whole, this book presents a very wide range of topics and will appeal to both practitioners and mathematicians. Most items will be dispatched the same or the next working day. Much more detailed analysis of the various interest-rate models is available. Coverage includes general algorithms, vanilla instruments, multi-asset instruments, yield curve models, interest rate exotics, and more, guiding readers thoroughly through pricing in the capital markets area. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting.
