Beschreibung

This book contains a comprehensive account of pricing models of financial derivatives. It covers risk neutral valuation theory, martingale measure, and tools in stochastic calculus required for the understanding of option pricing theory.


This second edition, 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. This second edition features additional emphasis on the discussion of Ito calculus and Girsanovs Theorem, and the risk-neutral measure and equivalent martingale pricing approach. A new chapter on credit risk models and pricing of credit derivatives has been added. Up-to-date research results are provided by many useful exercises.
This book contains a comprehensive account of pricing models of financial derivatives, including exotic equity options, interest rate products and credit derivatives. 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 method. This text is targeted for students in mathematical finance. It also serves as a good reference for quantitative analysts and derivative traders in investment banks. Research results and concepts are made accessible to the reader through extensive set of exercises.


From the reviews of the second edition:

"Mathematical Models of Financial Derivatives is a comprehensive collection of known facts and techniques, as well as a methodologically thought-through textbook on derivative pricing in financial markets. The book is written both for a novice who will profit from its numerous and well-conceived exercises, and a practitioner who wants to brush up on finer points of the classical pricing theory behind a specific financial product. it will certainly attract many a non-mathematician with an interest in quantitative methods in finance ." (Gordan itkovic, The Mathematical Association of America, March, 2009)

"This book is written mainly as a textbook of modeling on derivative pricing theory for the students in financial engineering, computational finance etc. It provides basic knowledge of mathematical theory and applications of the financial derivatives. This book can also be used as an Instructor's Manual of reference of those in financial institutions." (Gong Guanglu, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1146, 2008)

Klappentext

Mathematical Models of Financial Derivatives is a textbook on the theory behind modeling derivatives using the financial engineering approach, focussing on the martingale pricing 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 the aspects of pricing, hedging and their risk management. Starting from the renowned Black-Scholes-Merton formulation of option pricing model, readers are guided through the text on the new advances on the state-of-the-art derivative pricing models and interest rate models. Both analytic techniques and numerical methods for solving various types of derivative pricing models are emphasized.

The second edition presents a substantial revision of the first edition. The continuous-time martingale pricing theory is motivated through analysis of the underlying financial economics principles within a discrete-time framework. A large collection of closed-form formulas of various forms of exotic equity and fixed income derivatives are documented. The most recent research results and methodologies are made accessible to readers through the extensive set of exercises at the end of each chapter.

Yue-Kuen Kwok is Professor of Mathematics at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. He is the author of over 80 research papers and several books, including Applied Complex Variables. He is an associate editor of Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control and Asia-Pacific Financial Markets.



Zusammenfassung
Objectives and Audience In the past three decades, we have witnessed the phenomenal growth in the trading of ?nancial derivatives and structured products in the ?nancial markets around the globe and the surge in research on derivative pricing theory. Leading ?nancial ins- tutions are hiring graduates with a science background who can use advanced a- lytical and numerical techniques to price ?nancial derivatives and manage portfolio risks, a phenomenon coined as Rocket Science on Wall Street. There are now more than a hundred Master level degreed programs in Financial Engineering/Quantitative Finance/Computational Finance in different continents. This book is written as an - troductory textbook on derivative pricing theory for students enrolled in these degree programs. Another audience of the book may include practitioners in quantitative teams in ?nancial institutions who would like to acquire the knowledge of option pricing techniques and explore the new development in pricing models of exotic structured derivatives. The level of mathematics in this book is tailored to readers with preparation at the advanced undergraduate level of science and engineering - jors, in particular, basic pro?ciencies in probability and statistics, differential eq- tions, numerical methods, and mathematical analysis. Advance knowledge in s- chastic processes that are relevant to the martingale pricing theory, like stochastic differential calculus and theory of martingale, are introduced in this book. The cornerstones of derivative pricing theory are the BlackScholesMerton pricing model and the martingale pricing theory of ?nancial derivatives.
