- Publisher's Summary
- Mathematical Models of Financial Derivatives is a textbook on the theory behind modeling derivatives and their risk management, focussing on the valuation principles that are common to most derivative securities. A wide range of financial derivatives commonly traded in the equity and fixed income markets are analyzed, emphasizing on aspects of pricing, hedging and practical usage. The readers are guided through the text on new advances in analytic techniques and numerical methods for solving various types of derivative pricing models. In this second edition, more emphasis has been placed on the discussion of Ito calculus and Girsanov's Theorem; and in particular, the concepts of risk neutral measure and equivalent martingale pricing approach. A new chapter on credit risk models and pricing of credit derivatives has been added. Most recent research results and concepts are made accessible to the readers through extensive, well thought out exercises at the end of each chapter.

- This second edition of "Mathematical Models of Financial Derivatives", now featuring new material, focuses on the valuation principles that are common to most derivative securities. A wide range of financial derivatives commonly traded in the equity and fixed income markets are analysed, emphasising aspects of pricing, hedging and practical usage. It presents a self-contained treatment of risk-neutral valuation theory, martingale measure, and tools in stochastic calculus required for the understanding of option pricing theory. Derivative pricing models are solved using various approaches, by martingale pricing theory and partial differential equation methods. This text is targeted to students in mathematical finance. It also serves as a good reference for quantitative analysts and derivative traders in investment banks. The most recent research results and methodologies are made accessible to the reader through the extensive set of exercises at the end of each chapter.
