Mastering Mathematical Finance : Discrete Models of Financial Markets, Paperback / softback Book

Mastering Mathematical Finance : Discrete Models of Financial Markets Paperback / softback

Description

This book explains in simple settings the fundamental ideas of financial market modelling and derivative pricing, using the no-arbitrage principle.

Relatively elementary mathematics leads to powerful notions and techniques - such as viability, completeness, self-financing and replicating strategies, arbitrage and equivalent martingale measures - which are directly applicable in practice.

The general methods are applied in detail to pricing and hedging European and American options within the Cox-Ross-Rubinstein (CRR) binomial tree model.

A simple approach to discrete interest rate models is included, which, though elementary, has some novel features.

All proofs are written in a user-friendly manner, with each step carefully explained and following a natural flow of thought.

In this way the student learns how to tackle new problems.
