"An excellent treatment of the mathematics underlying the pricing of derivatives."
JOHN HULL, University of Toronto
"This book will be a major convenience to derivatives traders, risk managers, and other users and developers of derivatives models. It greatly reduces the cost of entry into the mathematical world of valuation, hedging, and risk measurement for derivatives positions."
J. DARRELL DUFFIE, Stanford University
PRAISE FOR THE SECOND EDITION:
"As an introduction to the mathematics underlying the pricing of derivatives, the book succeeds admirably."
JOURNAL OF ECONOMIC LITERATURE
"This book is a self-contained first step into mathematical finance, and it covers the fundamentals of the topic beautifully. The conclusions and references at the end of each chapter are very useful. The former provides a broad picture of each chapter's content. The latter offer invaluable links for those who would like a more detailed discussion..."
