Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

The pricing of derivative instruments has always been a highly complex and time-consuming activity. Advances in technology, however, have enabled much quicker and more accurate pricing through numerical when analytical solutions are not available.

In this book, the author bridges the divide between finance and mathematics, by applying the finite element method, a proven mathematical technique from engineering and natural sciences, to the financial models. Utilising practical examples and aided by an easy to use computer program, the author systematically describes the processes involved in a manner accessible to those without a deep understanding of mathematics.

This book is a detailed and comprehensive account of the methods involved and is the first to explore the application of these particular techniques to the financial markets.

From the Back Cover

"Topper brings together a powerful set of tools for quantitative modeling in finance. When confronted with challenging numerical PDE problems, I have more than once been told that the recommended recipes are well known by PDE specialists, although not found in books. Topper's book is now an exception!" Darrel Duffie, Graduate School of Business, Stanford University, USA

"Financial Engineering with Finite Elements is packed with state of the art valuation methods. Written in a clear and intuitive way makes it a must have for anyone wanting to stay ahead of the game. The book stands out from the crowd with a lot of information I have never seen published in any other finance book." Espen Gaarder Haug, Trader, J.P. Morgan, New York

"Finite elements have for a long time been a preferred numerical scheme for the solution of differential equations arising in the hard sciences. Now Jürgen Topper shows us how to apply the technique effectively to solve equations from the financial arena including the pricing of derivatives. He includes sections on multi-asset options, non-linear equations, exit times and exotics. A very welcome addition to the literature on numerical analysis in finance." Paul Wilmott, fund mananger and mathematician, London

"Jürgen Topper fills an important gap in the burgeoning literature on mathematical finance by providing a systematic and accessible description of the Method of Finite Elements and its applications. Since this important computational technique has a lot of potential in financem the book is very timely." Alexander Lipton, Citadel Investment Group, L.L.C., Chicago
