By Salih N. Neftci

This well known textual content, publishing Spring 1999 in its moment variation, introduces the math underlying the pricing of derivatives. the rise of curiosity in dynamic pricing versions stems from their applicability to functional occasions: with the liberating of trade, rates of interest, and capital controls, the marketplace for spinoff items has matured and pricing versions became extra exact. Professor Neftci's booklet solutions the necessity for a source focusing on execs, Ph.D. scholars, and complex MBA scholars who're particularly drawn to those monetary items. the second one variation is designed to make the e-book the most textual content in first 12 months masters and Ph.D. courses for definite classes, and should remain a huge handbook for industry execs.
