Credit Risk Valuation
Methods, Models, and Applications
M. Ammann, University of St. Gallen, Switzerland

This book oers an advanced introduction to the models of credit risk valuation. It concentrates on rm-value and reduced-form approaches and their applications in practice. Additionally, the book includes new models for valuing derivative securities with credit risk, focussing on options and forward contracts subject to counterparty default risk, but also treating options on credit-risky bonds and credit derivatives. The text provides detailed descriptions of the state-of-the-art martingale methods and advanced numerical implementations based on multi-variate trees used to price derivative credit risk. Numerical examples illustrate the eects of credit risk on the prices of nancial derivatives.

A Course in Derivative Securities

Introduction to Theory and Computation
K. Back, Texas A&M University, College Station, TX, USA

This book aims at a middle ground between the introductory books on derivative securities and those that provide advanced mathematical treatments. It is written for mathematically capable students who have not necessarily had prior exposure to probability theory, stochastic calculus, or computer programming. It provides derivations of pricing and hedging formulas (using the probabilistic change of numeraire technique) for standard options, exchange options, options on forwards and futures, quanto options, exotic options, caps, oors and swaptions, as well as VBA code implementing the formulas. It also contains an introduction to Monte Carlo, binomial models, and nite-dierence methods.
Professor Back has written a superb book on advanced derivatives. The book provides wonderfully clear explanations without sacricing mathematical accuracy. I highly recommend this book for everyone who wants to understand more about this fascinating and important area. Mark Broadie, Columbia University, New York

Financial Markets Theory

Equilibrium, Eciency and Information
E. Barucci, Universit di Pisa, Italy

Financial Markets Theory presents classical asset pricing theory, a theory composed of milestones such as portfolio selection, risk aversion, fundamental asset pricing theorem, portfolio frontier, CAPM, CCAPM, APT, the Modigliani-Miller Theorem, no arbitrage/risk neutral evaluation and information in nancial markets. Starting from an analysis of the empirical tests of the above theories, the author provides a discussion of the most recent literature, pointing out the main advancements within classical asset pricing theory and the new approaches designed to address open problems (e.g. behavioural nance). It is the only textbook to address the economic foundations of nancial markets theory from a mathematically rigorous standpoint, and to oer a self-contained critical discussion, based on empirical results.

Option Theory with Stochastic Analysis

An Introduction to Mathematical Finance
F. E. Benth, University of Oslo, Norway

The objective of this textbook is to provide a very basic and accessible introduction to option pricing, invoking only a minimum of stochastic analysis. Although short, it covers the theory essential to the statistical modeling of stocks, pricing of derivatives (general contingent claims) with martingale theory, and computational nance including both nite-dierence and Monte Carlo methods. The reader is led to an understanding of the assumptions inherent in the Black Scholes theory, of the main idea behind deriving prices and hedges, and of the use of numerical methods to compute prices for exotic contracts. The authors style is compact and to-the-point, requiring of the reader only basic mathematical skills. In contrast to many books addressed to an audience with greater mathematical experience, it can appeal not only to students entering the discipline, but also to many practitioners, e.g. in industry, looking for an introduction to this theory without too much detail.

Empirical Techniques in Finance

R. Bhar, The University of New South Wales, Sydney, NSW, Australia; S. Hamori, University of Kobe, Japan

The rapid advances in nancial technology in the past decade have led to a commensurate increase in sophistication for modelling techniques needed by the researchers for the understanding of nancial markets. The book aims at equipping graduate students, market analysts and others with a wide range of empirical techniques. It not only discusses the analytical structures behind such modelling approaches, but also explains how they are applied to actual data. Besides traditional elements of nancial econometrics and statistical techniques commonly used in quantitative nance, the book covers: estimation of parametric and non-parametric models; advanced tools to deal with unobserved components; discrete time models of asset prices and of interest rates. Illustrations include speculative equity prices, equity and currency risk premium as well as real investment opportunity analysis and interest rate contingent claim valuation.

Risk-Neutral Valuation
Pricing and Hedging of Financial Derivatives
N. H. Bingham, University of Sheeld, UK; R. Kiesel, University of Ulm, Germany

2 nd


Since its introduction in the early 1980s, the risk-neutral valuation principle has proved to be an important tool in the pricing and hedging of nancial derivatives. Following the success of the rst edition of Risk-Neutral Valuation, the authors have thoroughly revised the entire book, taking into account recent developments in the eld, and changes in their own thinking and teaching. In particular, the chapters on Incomplete Markets and Interest Rate Theory have been updated and extended, there is a new chapter on the important and growing area of Credit Risk and, in recognition of the increasing popularity of Lvy nance, there is considerable new material on: Innite divisibility and Lvy processes; Lvy-based models in incomplete markets. Further material such as exercises, solutions to exercises and lecture slides are also available via the web to provide additional support for lecturers.

Financial Markets and Martingales

Observations on Science and Speculation
N. Bouleau, cole des Ponts, Paris, France

Is it really possible to make money on the nancial markets? This is just one of the questions posed in this practical and thoughtprovoking book, winner in the original french version, of the Best nancial economics book prize 1999 from the Institute de Haute Finance, and the Prix FNAC-Arthur Anderson du meilleur livre dentreprise 2000. Starting with games of chance, from which probability theory was born, Nicolas Bouleau explains how the nancial markets operate, and demonstrates how the application of mathematics has turned nance into a high-tech business, as well as a formidable and ecient tool. The human side of nance is also considered, with a look at the inuence of the trader and the working relationships that are woven into the market rooms. Concise and accessible, with no previous knowledge of nance or mathematics required, the aim of this book is simply to articulate the main ideas and put them into perspective, leading readers to a fresh understanding of this complex area.

Biologically Inspired Algorithms for Financial Modelling

A. Brabazon, M. ONeill, University College Dublin, Ireland


Predicting the future for nancial gain is a dicult, sometimes protable activity. The focus of this book is the application of biologically inspired algorithms (BIAs) to nancial modelling. In a detailed introduction, the authors explain computer trading on nancial markets and the diculties faced in nancial market modelling. Then Part I provides a thorough guide to the various bioinspired methodologies neural networks, evolutionary computing (particularly genetic algorithms and grammatical evolution), particle swarm and ant colony optimization, and immune systems. Part II brings the reader through the development of market trading systems. Finally, Part III examines real-world case studies where BIA methodologies are employed to construct trading systems in equity and foreign exchange markets, and for the prediction of corporate bond ratings and corporate failures. The book was written for those in the nance community who want to apply BIAs in nancial modelling, and for computer scientists who want an introduction to this growing application domain.

Interest Rate Models - Theory and Practice

With Smile, Ination and Credit
D. Brigo, F. Mercurio, Banca IMI, Milan, Italy

2 nd


The 2nd edition of this successful book has several new features. The calibration discussion of the basic LIBOR market model has been enriched considerably, with an analysis of the impact of the swaptions interpolation technique and of the exogenous instantaneous correlation on the calibration outputs. A discussion of historical estimation of the instantaneous correlation matrix and of rank reduction has been added, and a LIBOR-model consistent swaption-volatility interpolation technique has been introduced. The old sections devoted to the smile issue in the LIBOR market model have been enlarged into a new chapter. New sections on local-volatility dynamics, and on stochastic volatility models have been added, with a thorough treatment of the recently developed uncertain-volatility approach. Examples of calibrations to real market data are now considered. The fast-growing interest for hybrid products has led to a new chapter. A special focus here is devoted to the pricing of ination-linked derivatives. The three nal new chapters of this second edition are devoted to credit. Since Credit Derivatives are increasingly fundamental, and since in the reduced-form modeling framework much of the technique involved is analogous to interest-rate modeling, Credit Derivatives mostly Credit Default Swaps (CDS), CDS Options and Constant Maturity CDS are discussed, building on the basic short rate-models and market models introduced earlier for the default-free market. Counterparty risk in interest rate payo valuation is also considered, motivated by the recent Basel II framework developments.

A Course in Credibility Theory and its Applications

H. Bhlmann, ETH, Zrich, Switzerland; A. Gisler, Winterthur Insurance Company, Winterthur, Switzerland


The book is aimed at teachers and students as well as practising experts in the nancial area, in particular at actuaries in the eld of property-casualty insurance, life insurance, reinsurance and insurance supervision. Persons working in the wider world of nance will also nd many relevant ideas and examples even though credibility methods have not yet been widely applied here.The book covers the subject of Credibility Theory extensively and includes most aspects of this topic from the simplest case to the most general dynamic model. Credibility is a lifeless topic if it is not linked closely to practical applications. The book therefore treats explicitly the tasks which the actuary encounters in his daily work such as estimation of loss ratios, claim frequencies and claim sizes. This book deserves a place on the bookshelf of every actuary and mathematician who works, teaches or does research in the area of insurance and nance.

Mathematics for Finance

An Introduction to Financial Engineering
M. Capiski, National Louis University, Nowy Sacz, Poland; T. Zastawniak, University of York, UK

ng 3rd printi

Designed to form the basis of an undergraduate course in mathematical nance, this book builds on mathematical models of bond and stock prices and covers three major areas of mathematical nance that all have an enormous impact on the way modern nancial markets operate, namely: Black-Scholes arbitrage pricing of options and other derivative securities; Markowitz portfolio optimization theory and the Capital Asset Pricing Model; and interest rates and their term structure. Assuming only a basic knowledge of probability and calculus, it covers the material in a mathematically rigorous and complete way at a level accessible to second or third year undergraduate students. The text is interspersed with a multitude of worked examples and exercises, so it is ideal for self-study and suitable not only for students of mathematics, but also students of business management, nance and economics, and anyone with an interest in nance who needs to understand the underlying theory.

Interest Rate Models: an Innite Dimensional Stochastic Analysis Perspective

R. A. Carmona, Princeton University, Princeton, USA; M. R. Tehranchi, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK

Interest Rate Models: an Innite Dimensional Stochastic Analysis Perspective studies the mathematical issues that arise in modeling the interest rate term structure. These issues are approached by casting the interest rate models as stochastic evolution equations in innite dimensional function spaces. The book is comprised of three parts. Part I is a crash course on interest rates, including a statistical analysis of the data and an introduction to some popular interest rate models. Part II is a self-contained introduction to innite dimensional stochastic analysis, including SDE in Hilbert spaces and Malliavin calculus. Part III presents some recent results in interest rate theory, including nite dimensional realizations of HJM models, generalized bond portfolios, and the ergodicity of HJM models.

Financial Markets in Continuous Time

R. Dana, Universit de Paris IX Dauphine, France; M. Jeanblanc, Universit dEvry, France

In modern nancial practice, asset prices are modelled by means of stochastic processes, and continuous-time stochastic calculus thus plays a central role in nancial modelling. This approach has its roots in the foundational work of the Nobel laureates Black, Scholes and Merton. Asset prices are further assumed to be rationalizable, that is, determined by equality of demand and supply on some market. This approach has its roots in the foundational work on General Equilibrium of the Nobel laureates Arrow and Debreu and in the work of McKenzie. This book has four parts. The rst brings together a number of results from discrete-time models. The second develops stochastic continuous-time models for the valuation of nancial assets (the Black-Scholes formula and its extensions), for optimal portfolio and consumption choice, and for obtaining the yield curve and pricing interest rate products. The third part recalls some concepts and results of general equilibrium theory, and applies this in nancial markets. The last part is more advanced and tackles market incompleteness and the valuation of exotic options in a complete market.

Mathematics of Financial Markets

R. J. Elliott, University of Calgary, AL, Canada; P. E. Kopp, University of Hull, UK

2 nd


This book presents the mathematics that underpins pricing models for derivative securities, such as options, futures and swaps, in modern nancial markets. The idealized continuous-time models built upon the famous Black-Scholes theory require sophisticated mathematical tools drawn from modern stochastic calculus. However, many of the underlying ideas can be explained more simply within a discrete-time framework. This is developed extensively in this substantially revised second edition to motivate the technically more demanding continuous-time theory, which includes a detailed analysis of the Black-Scholes model and its generalizations, American put options, term structure models and consumption-investment problems. The mathematics of martingales and stochastic calculus is developed where it is needed. he new edition adds substantial material from current areas of active research, notably: a new chapter on coherent risk measures, with applications to hedging a complete proof of the rst fundamental theorem of asset pricing for general discrete market models the arbitrage interval for incomplete discrete-time markets characterization of complete discrete-time markets, using extended models risk and return and sensitivity analysis for the Black-Scholes model.

Duality in Mathematical Finance

M. Frittelli, Universit degli Studi di Firenze, Italy; S. Biagini, Universit degli Studi di Perugia, Italy; G. Scandolo, Universit degli Studi di Firenze, Italy

This monograph presents an advanced and unied treatment of four important issues that have dominated the theoretical research in mathematical nance for the last ten years: (1) the fundamental theorem of asset pricing; (2) utility maximization in incomplete markets; (3) pricing in incomplete markets; (4) the risk measurement of a static payo and of a cash-ow stream. The powerful tools of convex analysis and duality theory are systematically applied to investigate these topics, under very general assumptions on the nancial markets. This duality approach reveals the prominent role of the investors preferences in all these fundamental issues and contributes to a deeper understanding of the economic aspects of the theory.

Binomial Models in Finance

J. van der Hoek, University of Adelaide, SA, Australia; R. J. Elliott, University of Calgary, AB, Canada


This book deals with many topics in modern nancial mathematics in a way that does not use advanced mathematical tools and shows how these models can be numerically implemented in a practical way. The book is aimed at undergraduate students, MBA students, and executives who wish to understand and apply nancial models in the spreadsheet computing environment. The basic building block is the one-step binomial model where a known price today can take one of two possible values at the next time. In this simple situation, risk neutral pricing can be dened and the model can be applied to price forward contracts, exchange rate contracts, and interest rate derivatives. The simple one-period framework can then be extended to multi-period models. The authors show how binomial tree models can be constructed for several applications to bring about valuations consistent with market prices. The book closes with a novel discussion of real options.

Semiparametric Modeling of Implied Volatility

M. R. Fengler, Sal. Oppenheim jr. & Cie., Frankfurt, Germany

The implied volatility surface is a key nancial variable for the pricing and the risk management of plain vanilla and exotic options portfolios alike. Consequently, statistical models of the implied volatility surface are of immediate importance in practice: they may appear as estimates of the current surface or as fully specied dynamic models describing its propagation through space and time. This book lls a gap in the nancial literature by bringing together both recent advances in the theory of implied volatility and rened semiparametric estimation strategies and dimension reduction methods for functional surfaces: the rst part of the book is devoted to smile-consistent pricing appoaches. The theory of implied and local volatility is presented concisely, and vital smile-consistent modeling approaches such as implied trees, mixture diusion, or stochastic implied volatility models are discussed in detail. The second part of the book familiarizes the reader with estimation techniques that are natural candidates to meet the challenges in implied volatility modeling, such as the rich functional structure of observed implied volatility surfaces and the necessity for dimension reduction: non- and semiparametric smoothing techniques. The book introduces Nadaraya-Watson, local polynomial and least squares kernel smoothing, and dimension reduction methods such as common principle components, functional principle components models and dynamic semiparametric factor models. Throughout, most methods are illustrated with empirical investigations, simulations and pictures.

Financial Modeling Under Non-Gaussian Distributions

E. Jondeau, M. Rockinger, University of Lausanne, Switzerland; S.-H. Poon, University of Manchester, UK

Non-Gaussian distributions are the key theme of this book which addresses the causes and consequences of non-normality and time dependency in both asset returns and option prices. One of the main aims is to bridge the gap between the theoretical developments and the practical implementations of what many users and researchers perceive as sophisticated models or black boxes. The book is written for non-mathematicians who want to model nancial market prices so the emphasis throughout is on practice. There are abundant empirical illustrations of the models and techniques described, many of which could be equally applied to other nancial time series, such as exchange and interest rates. The authors have taken care to make the material accessible to anyone with a basic

knowledge of statistics, calculus and probability, while at the same time preserving the mathematical rigor and complexity of the original models. This book will be an essential reference for practitioners in the nance industry, especially those responsible for managing portfolios and monitoring nancial risk, but it will also be useful for mathematicians who want to know more about how their mathematical tools are applied in nance, and as a text for advanced courses in empirical nance; nancial econometrics and nancial derivatives.

Irrational Exuberance Reconsidered

The Cross Section of Stock Returns
M. Klpmann, CFA, Berlin, Germany

2 nd


Does the stock market overreact? Recent capital market turbulences have cast doubt whether the behaviour of stock markets is in line with rational investor behaviour. To which extent stock returns are predictable is the question at the heart of the controversy between the paradigms of rational asset pricing and behavioural nance. This new and revised edition discusses the empirical evidence from both perspectives. Theory and empirical analysis are blended with feedback from security analysts to oer a road towards a deeper understanding of the underlying forces to drive performance in the stock market.

Stochastic Calculus of Variations in Mathematical Finance

P. Malliavin, Acadmie des Sciences, Paris, France; A. Thalmaier, Universit de Poitiers, France

Malliavin calculus provides an innite-dimensional dierential calculus in the context of continuous paths stochastic processes. The calculus includes formulae of integration by parts and Sobolev spaces of dierentiable functions dened on a probability space. This new book, demonstrating the relevance of Malliavin calculus for Mathematical Finance, starts with an exposition from scratch of this theory. Greeks (price sensitivities) are reinterpreted in terms of Malliavin calculus. Integration by parts formulae provide stable Monte Carlo schemes for numerical valuation of digital options. Finite-dimensional projections of innite-dimensional Sobolev spaces lead to Monte Carlo computations of conditional expectations useful for computing American options. The discretization error of the Euler scheme for a stochastic dierential equation is expressed as a generalized Watanabe distribution on the Wiener space. Insider information is expressed as an innite-dimensional drift. The last chapter gives an introduction to the same objects in the context of jump processes where incomplete markets appear.

Extreme Financial Risks

From Dependence to Risk Management
Y. Malevergne, CNRS and University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis, France; D. Sornette, CNRS and University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis and UCLA, USA


Portfolio analysis and optimization, together with the associated risk assessment and management, require knowledge of the likely distributions of returns at dierent time scales and insights into the nature and properties of dependences between the dierent assets. This book oers an original and thorough treatment of these two domains, focusing mainly on the concepts and tools that remain valid for large and extreme price moves. Strong emphasis is placed on the theory of copulas and their empirical testing and calibration, because they oer intrinsic and complete measures of dependences.
Extreme Financial Risks will be useful to: students looking for a general and in-depth introduction to the eld; nancial engineers, economists, econometricians, actuarial professionals; researchers and mathematicians looking for a synoptic view comparing the pros and cons of dierent modelling strategies; and quantitative practitioners for the insights oered on the subtleties and the many dimensional components of both risk and dependence.

Non-Life Insurance Mathematics

An Introduction with Stochastic Processes
T. Mikosch, University of Copenhagen, Denmark

This book oers a mathematical introduction to non-life insurance and, at the same time, to a multitude of applied stochastic processes. It gives detailed discussions of the fundamental models for claim sizes, claim arrivals, the total claim amount, and their probabilistic properties. Throughout the book the language of stochastic processes is used for describing the dynamics of an insurance portfolio in claim size space and time. In addition to the standard actuarial notions, the reader learns about the basic models of modern non-life insurance mathematics: the Poisson, compound Poisson and renewal processes in collective risk theory and heterogeneity and Bhlmann models in experience rating. The reader gets to know how the underlying probabilistic structures allow one to determine premiums in a portfolio or in an individual policy. Special emphasis is given to the phenomena which are caused by large claims in these models. What makes this book special are more than 100 gures and tables illustrating and visualizing the theory. Every section ends with extensive exercises. They are an integral part of this course since they support the access to the theory. The book can serve either as a text for an undergraduate/graduate course on non-life insurance mathematics or applied stochastic processes. Its content is in agreement with the European Groupe Consultatif standards. An extensive bibliography, annotated by various comments sections with references to more advanced relevant literature, make the book broadly and easiliy accessible.

Martingale Methods in Financial Modelling

M. Musiela, BNP Paribas, London, UK; M. Rutkowski, University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia

In the 2nd edition some sections of Part I are omitted for better readability, and a brand new chapter is devoted to volatility risk. As a consequence, hedging of plain-vanilla options and valuation of exotic options are no longer limited to the Black-Scholes framework with constant volatility.

2 nd


The theme of stochastic volatility also reappears systematically in the second part of the book, which has been revised fundamentally, presenting much more detailed analyses of the various interest-rate models available: the authors perspective throughout is that the choice of a model should be based on the reality of how a particular sector of the nancial market functions, never neglecting to examine liquid primary and derivative assets and identifying the sources of trading risk associated. This long-awaited new edition of an outstandingly successful, well-established book, concentrating on the most pertinent and widely accepted modelling approaches, provides the reader with a text focused on practical rather than theoretical aspects of nancial modelling.

A Benchmark Approach Quantitative Finance

E. Platen, D. Heath, University of Technology Sydney, NSW, Australia


The benchmark approach provides a general framework for nancial market modeling, which extends beyond the standard risk neutral pricing theory. It permits a unied treatment of portfolio optimization, derivative pricing, integrated risk management and insurance risk modeling. The existence of an equivalent risk-neutral pricing measure is not required. Instead, it leads to pricing formulae with respect to the real world probability measure. This yields important modeling freedom which turns out to be necessary for the derivation of realistic, parsimonious market models. The rst part of the book describes the necessary tools from probability theory, statistics, stochastic calculus and the theory of stochastic dierential equations with jumps. The second part is devoted to nancial modeling under the benchmark approach. Various quantitative methods for the fair pricing and hedging of derivatives are explained. The general framework is used to provide an understanding of the nature of stochastic volatility. The book is intended for a wide audience that includes quantitative analysts, postgraduate students and practitioners in nance, economics and insurance. It aims to be a self-contained, accessible but mathematically rigorous introduction to quantitative nance for readers that have a reasonable mathematical or quantitative background. Finally, the book should stimulate interest in the benchmark approach by describing some of its power and wide applicability.

A Game Theory Analysis of Options

Corporate Finance and Financial Intermediation in Continuous Time
A. Ziegler, University of Lausanne, Switzerland

2 nd


This book shows how to combine game theory and option pricing in order to analyze dynamic multiperson decision problems in continuous time and under uncertainty. The basic intuition of the method is to separate the problem of the valuation of payos from the analysis of strategic interactions. Whereas the former is to be handled using option pricing, the latter can be addressed by game theory. The text shows how both instruments can be combined and how game theory can be applied to complex problems of corporate nance and nancial intermediation. Besides providing theoretical foundations and serving as a guide to stochastic game theory modelling in continuous time, the text contains numerous applications to the theory of corporate nance and nancial intermediation. By combining arbitrage-free valuation techniques with strategic analysis, the game theory analysis of options actually provides the link between markets and organizations.

Incomplete Information and Heterogeneous Beliefs in Continuous-time Finance

A. Ziegler, University of Lausanne, Switzerland

This book considers the impact of incomplete information and heterogeneous beliefs on investors optimal portfolio and consumption behavior and equilibrium asset prices. After a brief review of the existing incomplete information literature, the eect of incomplete information on investors exptected utility, risky asset prices, and interest rates is described. It is demonstrated that increasing the quality of investors information need not increase their expected utility and the prices of risky assets. The impact of heterogeneous beliefs on investors portfolio and consumption behavior and equilibrium asset prices is shown to be non-trivial. It is also demonstrated that nancial markets in general do not aggregate information eciently, a fact that can explain the equity premium puzzle. Heterogeneous beliefs can explain a number of observed phenomena, such as the fact that equilibrium state-price densities are not log-normal, the smile in option implied volatility, and the patterns of implied risk aversion reported recently in the literature.

Controlled Markov Processes and Viscosity Solutions

W. H. Fleming, Brown University, Providence, RI, USA; H. Soner, Koc University, Istanbul, Turkey

2 nd


This book is intended as an introduction to optimal stochastic control for continuous time Markov processes and to the theory of viscosity solutions. Stochastic control problems are treated using the dynamic programming approach. The authors approach stochastic control problems by the method of dynamic programming. The fundamental equation of dynamic programming is a nonlinear evolution equation for the value function. For controlled Markov diusion processes, this becomes a nonlinear partial dierential equation of second order, called a Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman (HJB) equation. Typically, the value function is not smooth enough to satisfy the HJB equation in a classical sense. Viscosity solutions provide framework in which to study HJB equations, and to prove continuous dependence of solutions on problem data. The theory is illustrated by applications from engineering, management science, and nancial economics. In this second edition, new material on applications to mathematical nance has been added. Concise introductions to risk-sensitive control theory, nonlinear H-innity control and dierential games are also included.

Introduction to Stochastic Integration

H. Kuo, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA, USA


The theory of stochastic integration, also called the It calculus, has a large spectrum of applications in virtually every scientic area involving random functions, but it can be a very dicult subject for people without much mathematical background. The It calculus was originally motivated by the construction of Markov diusion processes from innitesimal generators. Previously, the construction of such processes required several steps, whereas It constructed these diusion processes directly in a single step as the solutions of stochastic integral equations associated with the innitesimal generators. Moreover, the properties of these diusion processes can be derived from the stochastic integral equations and the It formula. This introductory textbook on stochastic integration provides a concise introduction to the It calculus, and covers the following topics: Constructions of Brownian motion Stochastic integrals for Brownian motion and martingales The It formula Multiple Wiener-It integrals Stochastic dierential equations Applications to nance, ltering theory, and electric circuits.

Introductory Lectures on Fluctuations of Lvy Processes with Applications

A. Kyprianou, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, UK


This text book forms the basis of a graduate course on the theory and applications of Lvy processes, from the perspective of their path uctuations. Central to the presentation are decompositions of the paths of Lvy processes in terms of their local maxima and an understanding of their short- and long-term behaviour. The book aims to be mathematically rigourous while still providing an intuitive feel for underlying principles. The results and applications often focus on the case of Lvy processes with jumps in only one direction, for which recent theoretical advances have yielded a higher degree of mathematical transparency and explicitness. Each chapter has a comprehensive set of exercises with complete solutions.

Micronance Investment Funds

Leveraging Private Capital for Economic Growth and Poverty Reduction
I. Matthus-Maier, KfW, Frankfurt, Germany; J. D. Pischke, Reston, VA, USA (Eds.)
The surge in new investment funds - nearly 60 funds at last count is an exciting sign that micronance is attracting mainstream nancial markets. Foreign investors bridge a crucial gap for MFIs and greeneld banks not yet able to attract deposits, debt or equity from local sources. Recognizing the ultimate goal of building those local nancial markets that serve the poor, some foreign investors and funds are facilitating local intermediation with incentives like guarantees for local banks to lend to MFIs in local currency. Such contributions to local market building, combined with strengthening governance, increasing transparency and rigor make the new funds potentially very positive forces in micronance. Elisabeth Littleeld, Director and CEO, CGAP
