An Introduction to Mathematical Finance with Applications

• Author : Arlie O. Petters,Xiaoying Dong
• Publisher : Springer
• Release : 17 June 2016

This textbook aims to fill the gap between those that offer a theoretical treatment without many applications and those that present and apply formulas without appropriately deriving them. The balance achieved will give readers a fundamental understanding of key financial ideas and tools that form the basis for building realistic models, including those that may become proprietary. Numerous carefully chosen examples and exercises reinforce the student’s conceptual understanding and facility with applications. The exercises are divided into conceptual, application-based,
