Paul Wilmott on Quantitative Finance, 3 Volume Set, 2nd Edition

توضیحات

The first volume of Paul Wilmott On Quantitative Finance Second Edition, MATHEMATICAL AND FINANCIAL FOUNDATIONS; BASIC THEORY OF DERIVATIVES; RISK AND RETURN.

In this volume the reader is introduced to the fundamental mathematical tools and financial concepts needed to understand quantitative finance, portfolio management and derivatives. Parallels are drawn between the respectable world of investing and the not-so-respectable world of gambling.

Key chapters in this volume are

  • The Random Behavior of Assets
  • The Black-Scholes Model
  • The Black-Scholes Formulae and the ‘Greeks’
  • Early Exercise and American Options
  • How to Delta Hedge
  • Fixed-income Products and Analysis: Yield, Duration and Convexity
  • Swaps
  • The Binomial Model
  • How Accurate is the Normal Approximation?
  • Investment Lessons from Blackjack and Gambling

The author has included numerous Bloomberg screen dumps to illustrate in real terms the points he raises, together with essential Visual Basic code, spreadsheet explanations of the models, the reproduction of term sheets and option classification tables.

In addition to the practical orientation of the book the author himself also appears throughout the book – in cartoon form, readers will be relieved to hear – to personally highlight and explain the key sections and issues discussed.

 

The second volume of Paul Wilmott On Quantitative Finance Second Edition, EXOTIC CONTRACTS AND PATH DEPENDENCY; FIXED INCOME MODELING AND DERIVATIVES; CREDIT RISK. I

n this volume the reader sees further applications of stochastic mathematics to new financial problems and different markets.

Key chapters in this volume are
