Description

A compilation of the most respected authorities in financial engineering
Based around a conference on financial modeling held in Milan in December 1999, New Directions in Mathematical Finance brings together the leading names in quantitative finance to discuss the most current modeling techniques in a variety of areas of financial engineering. The contributions featured in this volume are all new items, based on each speaker's topic of presentation at the convention. Editors Paul Wilmott and Henrik Rasmussen include an introduction which pulls together the themes of the book.
