Описание: The third edition of this highly acclaimed undergraduate textbook is suitable for teaching all the mathematics for an undergraduate course in any of the physical sciences. As well as lucid descriptions of all the topics and many worked examples, it contains over 800 exercises. New stand-alone chapters give a systematic account of the 'special functions' of physical science, cover an extended range of practical applications of complex variables, and give an introduction to quantum operators. Further tabulations, of relevance in statistics and numerical integration, have been added. In this edition, half of the exercises are provided with hints and answers and, in a separate manual available to both students and their teachers, complete worked solutions. The remaining exercises have no hints, answers or worked solutions and can be used for unaided homework; full solutions are available to instructors on a password-protected web site, www.cambridge.org/9780521679718.

Описание: Principles of Financial Engineering, Third Edition, is a highly acclaimed text on the fast-paced and complex subject of financial engineering. This updated edition describes the "engineering" elements of financial engineering instead of the mathematics underlying it. It shows how to use financial tools to accomplish a goal rather than describing the tools themselves. It lays emphasis on the engineering aspects of derivatives (how to create them) rather than their pricing (how they act) in relation to other instruments, the financial markets, and financial market practices. This volume explains ways to create financial tools and how the tools work together to achieve specific goals. Applications are illustrated using real-world examples. It presents three new chapters on financial engineering in topics ranging from commodity markets to financial engineering applications in hedge fund strategies, correlation swaps, structural models of default, capital structure arbitrage, contingent convertibles, and how to incorporate counterparty risk into derivatives pricing. Poised midway between intuition, actual events, and financial mathematics, this book can be used to solve problems in risk management, taxation, regulation, and above all, pricing. A solutions manual enhances the text by presenting additional cases and solutions to exercises. This latest edition of Principles of Financial Engineering is ideal for financial engineers, quantitative analysts in banks and investment houses, and other financial industry professionals. It is also highly recommended to graduate students in financial engineering and financial mathematics programs.
Описание: This book covers the cross-disciplinary areas between management issues and engineering issues relevant to implementation of Environmental Management Systems (EMS) to the ISO 14000 series standards. It summarises the requirements set by ISO14001 and considers the management and engineering policies needed to satisfy these requirements and achieve ISO 14001 certification. * Unique approach by integrating environmental management and engineering considerations * Avoids overuse of complicated technical jargon * Detailed coverage of measurement and calibration standards to meet ISO14001 * Provides example of EMS documentation and records manual * Detailed coverage and control of air, water, noise, vibration pollution and waste management
Описание: This is a succinct guide to the application and modelling of dependence models or copulas in the financial markets. First applied to credit risk modelling, copulas are now widely used across a range of derivatives transactions, asset pricing techniques and risk models and are a core part of the financial engineer`s toolkit.
Описание: Owing to the author`s teaching as a finance professor and as an experienced investment banker, this book brings an insightful perspective, blending the theoretical with the practical of project financing with its myriad components and variations. It is suitable for project sponsors, regulators, host governments (local and foreign), and financiers.
Описание: Financial Engineering for Low-Income Households is an edited compilation of articles that focus on using financial engineering-a multidisciplinary field that uses technical methods from the fields of finance, mathematics and economics-to design financial services for low-income households. The book aims to provide an understanding of the various risk-reward trade-offs facing low-income households and how principles of financial engineering can be best applied to understand and manage the complete suite of financial and non-financial assets, including human capital, insurance, annuities and loans. This compilation connects the fundamental concepts in finance and financial engineering with the relatively new field of financial services delivery to low-income households. Its applied nature will help the reader grasp the implications of theoretical principles in finance on practical product-design considerations. It has several illustrations, caselets, and exercises to facilitate learning and in order to develop a full understanding of the underlying concepts. The book will be a valuable tool for students and practitioners interested in the design and delivery of financial services to low-income households.
Описание: Stock, bonds, cash - the investment mind is often programmed. The reality is that most investors think in terms of single asset classes, and allocate money to them accordingly. The contribution of "First Principles: An Investor's Guide to Building Bridges Across Financial Products" is that a single unified valuation approach is available to use for all financial products. This book shows investors how to focus on the dynamics of processes and interrelationships of different investment choices, providing the reader with a financial toolbox to equips any investor with the knowledge to de-construct and value any financial product, making it a must for portfolio managers and individual investors interested in building optimal portfolios.
Описание: This title provides a treatment of futures, "plain vanilla" options, swaps and the use of exotic, interest rate options in speculation and hedging. Pricing of options using numerical methods such as lattices (BOPM), Monte Carlo simulation and finite difference methods as well as solutions via continuous time stochastic processes are also covered. Real options theory and its use in investment appraisal and in valuing internet and biotechnology stocks provide practical applications. In addition, the authors also present the coverage of derivatives within a wider risk management context.
