This book evolved from the first ten years of the Carnegie Mellon professional Master's program in Computational Finance. The contents of the book have been used successfully with students whose mathematics background consists of calculus and calculusbased probability. The text gives both precise statements of results, plausibility arguments, and even some proofs. But more importantly, intuitive explanations, developed and refined through classroom experience with this material, are provided throughout the book. Volume I introduces the fundamental concepts in a discretetime setting and Volume II builds on this foundation to develop stochastic calculus, martingales, riskneutral pricing, exotic options, and term structure models, all in continuous time. The book includes a selfcontained treatment of the probability theory needed for stochastic calculus, including Brownian motion and its properties. Advanced topics include foreign exchange models, forward measures, and jumpdiffusion processes. Classroomtested exercises conclude every chapter; some of these extend the theory while others are drawn from practical problems in quantitative finance. Instructor's manual available.

Designed as a text for graduate courses in stochastic processes, this book is intended for readers familiar with measuretheoretic probability and discretetime processes who wish to explore stochastic processes in continuous time. The vehicle chosen for this exposition is Brownian motion, which is presented as the canonical example of both a martingale and a Markov process with continuous paths. In this context, the theory of stochastic integration and stochastic calculus is developed. The power of this calculus is illustrated by results concerning representations of martingales and change of measure on Wiener space, and this in turn permits a presentation of recent advances in financial economics (options pricing and consumption/investment optimization).
