Mathematical finance requires the use of advanced mathematical techniques drawn from the theory of probability, stochastic processes and stochastic differential equations. These areas are generally introduced and developed at an abstract level, making it problematic when applying these techniques to practical issues in finance. Problems and Solutions in Mathematical Finance Volume I. Mathematical Basis for Finance: Stochastic Calculus for Finance provides detailed knowledge of all necessary attributes in stochastic calculus that are required for applications of the theory of stochastic integration in Mathematical Finance, in particular, the arbitrage theory. The exposition follows the traditions of the Strasbourg school.

It is aptly named as probability for finance and is a very good primer for people who want to progress to advanced topics in mathematical finance. There were many gaps in my knowledge acquired during my masters in financial engineering and the author does a good job not only in explaining the concepts but also the need for these mathematical tools/5(13). For mathematical finance topics, you may download the earlier version lecture notes from the author's homepage webpage. In my opinion, this is the easiest book for an undergraduate wanting to learn stochastic calculus. Do NOT regard this book as inaccurate or wrong just because of the word "Informal". Having worked through 4 chapters of the.

( views) Probability and Mathematical Statistics by Prasanna Sahoo - University of Louisville, This book is an introduction to probability and mathematical statistics intended for students already having some elementary mathematical background. It is intended for a one-year junior or senior level undergraduate or beginning graduate course. Some expert (physicist, working partly in finance) recommended me the book: Jean-Philippe Bouchaud, Marc Potters (). Theory of Financial Risk and Derivative Pricing: From Statistical Physics to Risk Management Amazon. It is econophysics approach to analysis of financial markets. It uses quite advanced mathematics including random matrices, stable distributions and so on.

The book starts with discussing basic mathematical finance such as Ito's lemma and Black-Scholes theory. This is a rather compact summary without proofs and I therefore believe a novice reader first should read an introductory book such as the one by Baxter & Rennie.

"This is probably the best written book on discrete-time models of mathematical finance. It is self consistent, all notions used in it are carefully defined. That is a mathematical book - by mathematicians and for mathematicians, which also means that its practical applications are restricted.

The bibliography is Cited by: 4. * Second the recommendation on Hull. It's a standard textbook. * Shreve -- "Stochastic Calculus for Finance II: Continuous Time Models" (Basics of stochastic calculus) * For interest rate modeling, Rebonato is one of the classics; Brigo & Mercur.
