Rezensionen
From the reviews of the first edition: "The book concentrates on discrete derivative pricing models, culminating in a careful and complete derivation of the Black-Scholes option pricing formula as a limiting case of the Cox-Ross-Rubinstein discrete model. ... The mathematics is not watered down but is appropriate for the intended audience. ... No background in finance is required, since the book also contains a chapter on options." (L'ENSEIGNEMENT MATHEMATIQUE, Vol. 50 (3-4), 2004) "The book is basically a textbook on the mathematics of financial derivatives on equity ... . The text covers the material with precision, with detailed discussions, not avoiding the topics that require a bit more of mathematical maturity, and this it does with clarity. In particular, the discussion of optimal stopping is clear and detailed." (Eusebio Corbache, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1068, 2005)
