"Deals with pricing and hedging financial derivatives.... Computational methods are introduced and the text contains the Excel VBA routines corresponding to the formulas and procedures described in the book. This is valuable since computer simulation can help readers understand the theory....The book...succeeds in presenting intuitively advanced derivative modelling... it provides a useful bridge between introductory books and the more advanced literature." --MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS


From the reviews of the first edition:

"Professor Back has written a superb book on advanced derivatives. The book provides wonderfully clear explanations without sacrificing mathematical accuracy. I highly recommend this book for everyone who wants to understand more about this fascinating and important area."
(Mark Broadie, Columbia University, New York)
"
Professor Kerry Back's book fills a void in the derivative literature by providing an excellent and much needed book for a second course in derivatives. The clear presentation and the choice of VBA as the software tool makes this a perfect textbook for such a course. Using VBA via excel is an excellent choice as it exhibits an "open source" environment that is readily available for users."
(Eliezer Z. Prisman, York University, Toronto)

"This book deals with pricing and hedging financial derivatives. Computational methods are introduced and the text contains the Excel VBA routines corresponding to the formulas and procedures described in the book. This is valuable since computer simulation can help readers understand the theory. The book under review succeeds in presenting intuitively advanced derivative modelling . In my opinion, it provides a useful bridge between introductory books and the more advanced literature." (Benjamin Jourdain, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2006 h)

"This book contains a practical introduction to the mathematics of financial engineering. It can serve as an excellent bridge between the introductory books on derivative securities and those that provide advanced mathematical treatments. the book presents a very wide spectrum of the problems and methods concerned with pricing and hedging derivatives in a quite accessible way. it can be strongly recommended not only to be used as a course but also for those wishing to train themselves in this field." (Malgorzata Doman, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1085, 2006)

"The strength of this book is in its clarity in exposition of the complex modern financial mathematics. The book is self-contained, and a student can learn the key elements of the main toolkits in financial engineering . Further, the book provides useful exercises and VBA programs so that the students can simulate the results . I recommend the book to an MBA program . The book could also be used in some master programs in financial engineering and mathematical finance." (Thomas S. Y. Ho, SIAM Review, Vol. 48 (3), 2006)

Klappentext

This book aims at a middle ground between the introductory books on derivative securities and those that provide advanced mathematical treatments. It is written for mathematically capable students who have not necessarily had prior exposure to probability theory, stochastic calculus, or computer programming. It provides derivations of pricing and hedging formulas (using the probabilistic change of numeraire technique) for standard options, exchange options, options on forwards and futures, quanto options, exotic options, caps, floors and swaptions, as well as VBA code implementing the formulas. It also contains an introduction to Monte Carlo, binomial models, and finite-difference methods.



Zusammenfassung
This book is an outgrowth of notes compiled by the author while teaching courses for undergraduate and masters/MBA ?nance students at Washi- ton University in St. Louis and the Institut fur ¨ H¨ ohere Studien in Vienna. At onetime,acourseinOptionsandFutureswasconsideredanadvanced?nance elective, but now such a course is nearly mandatory for any ?nance major and is an elective chosen by many non-?nance majors as well. Moreover, students are exposed to derivative securities in courses on Investments, International Finance, Risk Management, Investment Banking, Fixed Income, etc. This - pansion of education in derivative securities mirrors the increased importance of derivative securities in corporate ?nance and investment management. MBA and undergraduate courses typically (and appropriately) focus on the use of derivatives for hedging and speculating. This is su?cient for many students. However, the seller of derivatives, in addition to needing to und- standbuy-sidedemands,isconfrontedwiththeneedtopriceandhedge.Mo- over,thebuyerofderivatives,dependingonthedegreeofcompetitionbetween sellers, may very likely bene?t from some knowledge of pricing as well. It is pricing and hedging that is the primary focus of this book. Through lea- ing the fundamentals of pricing and hedging, students also acquire a deeper understanding of the contracts themselves. Hopefully, this book will also be of use to practitioners and for students in Masters of Financial Engineering programs and, to some extent, Ph.D. students in ?nance.
