This renowned textual content, publishing Spring 1999 in its moment version, introduces the maths underlying the pricing of derivatives. the rise of curiosity in dynamic pricing versions stems from their applicability to sensible events: with the releasing of trade, rates of interest, and capital controls, the marketplace for spinoff items has matured and pricing types became extra actual. Professor Neftci's booklet solutions the necessity for a source concentrating on pros, Ph.D. scholars, and complex MBA scholars who're in particular attracted 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 yes classes, and should stay a major handbook for industry pros.
