Contemporary finance and actuarial calculations have become so mathematically complex that a rigorous exposition is required for an accurate and complete presentation. This volume delivers just that. It gives a comprehensive and up-to-date methodology for financial pricing and modelling. Also included are special cases useful for practical applications.

Beyond the traditional areas of hedging and investment on complete markets (the Black-Scholes and Cox-Ross-Rubinstein models), the book includes topics that are not currently available in monograph form, such as incomplete markets, markets with constraints, imperfect forms of hedging, and the convergence of calculations in finance and insurance.

The book is geared toward specialists in finance and actuarial mathematics, practitioners in the financial and insurance business, students, and post-docs in corresponding areas of study. Readers should have a foundation in probability theory, random processes, and mathematical statistics.

Readership

Specialists in finance and actuarial mathematics, practitioners in the financial and insurance business, students, and post-docs in corresponding areas of study.

Reviews

"The style of this monograph is precise, correct and includes the necessary details ... good and up-to-date references ... recommend it to both theoreticians and practitioners in mathematical finance and insurance ... can also serve as a modern course in actuarial and financial mathematics and quantitative risk management for students in mathematical economics."
