Описание: Over the last twenty years, a species of math whizzes known as 'quants' has usurped the testosterone-fueled, kill-or-be-killed risk-takers who've long been the alpha males of the world's largest casino. The quants believe that a dizzying, indecipherable-to-mere-mortals cocktail of differential calculus, quantum physics, and advanced geometry holds the key to reaping riches from the financial markets. They took over Wall Street with their formulas...and helped create a digitized money-trading machine that could shift billions around the globe with the click of a mouse. Yet, in creating it, had they sowed the seeds for financial history's greatest disaster? Drawing on unique access to four of the best and brightest among these number-crunching titans, The Quants tells the inside story of what these men thought and felt in the days and weeks when they helplessly watched much of their net worth vaporize--and wondered just how their mind-bending formulas and genius-level IQs had led them so wrong so fast. With the immediacy of today's NASDAQ close and the timeless power of a Greek tragedy, The Quants is at once a masterpiece of explanatory journalism, a gripping tale of ambition and hubris...and an ominous warning about Wall Street's future.

Описание: How a Small Band of Maths Wizards Took Over Wall Street and Nearly Destroyed It. The story actually begins in the 1950s when a successful gambler named Ed Thorp decided that skills learned at the Vegas gambling tables could be applied equally successfully to the financial markets. He soon acquired followers and imitators and over the next few decades they assumed positions of ever-greater power and influence. Eccentric, brilliant, often larger than life, they achieved extraordinary success and massive wealth. `The Quants` follows them from boom to bust, explaining why they were so self-confident, and why they got it so disastrously wrong.
Описание: In March 2006, the world's richest men sipped champagne in an opulent New York hotel. They were preparing to compete in a poker tournament with -million-dollar stakes. At the card table that night was Peter Muller, who managed a fabulously successful hedge fund called PDT. With him was Ken Griffin, who was the tough-as-nails head of Citadel Investment Group. There, too, were Cliff Asness, the sharp-tongued, mercurial founder of the hedge fund AQR Capital Management, and Boaz Weinstein, chess "life master" and king of the credit-default swap. Muller, Griffin, Asness, and Weinstein were among the best and brightest of a new breed, the quants. Over the past twenty years, this species of math whiz had usurped the testosterone-fueled, kill-or-be-killed risk takers who'd long been the alpha males of the world's largest casino. The quants believed that a cocktail of differential calculus, quantum physics, and advanced geometry held the key to reaping riches from the financial markets. And they helped create a digitized money-trading machine that could shift -billions around the globe with the click of a mouse. Few realized that night, though, that in creating this extraordinary system, men like Muller, Griffin, Asness, and Weinstein had sown the seeds for history's greatest financial disaster.

Описание: A news-breaking account of the global stock market's subterranean battles, Dark Pools portrays the rise of the "bots"--artificially intelligent systems that execute trades in milliseconds and use the cover of darkness to out-maneuver the humans who've created them. In the beginning was Josh Levine, an idealistic programming genius who dreamed of wresting control of the market from the big exchanges that, again and again, gave the giant institutions an advantage over the little guy. Levine created a computerized trading hub named Island where small traders swapped stocks, and over time his invention morphed into a global electronic stock market that sent trillions in capital through a vast jungle of fiber-optic cables. By then, the market that Levine had sought to fix had turned upside down, birthing secretive exchanges called dark pools and a new species of trading machines that could think, and that seemed, ominously, to be slipping the control of their human masters. Dark Pools is the fascinating story of how global markets have been hijacked by trading robots--many so self-directed that humans can't predict what they'll do next.

Описание: Tells the story of the group of whizzkids who applied their computer programming genius to the invention of robot versions of Warren Buffett. As they did so, they created a radically new trading system in which machines trade anonymously with other machines, making and losing fortunes in the blink of an eye.
