Publisher: Wiley-Interscience | pages: 696 | 2006 | ISBN: 0471745030 | PDF | 23,8 mb
A state-of-the-art introduction to the powerful mathematical and statistical tools used in the field of finance. The use of mathematical models and numerical techniques is a practice employed by a growing number of applied mathematicians working on applications in finance. Reflecting this development, Numerical Methods in Finance and Economics: A MATLAB?-Based Introduction, Second Edition bridges the gap between financial theory and computational practice while showing readers how to utilize MATLAB?–the powerful numerical computing environment–for financial applications. The author provides an essential foundation in finance and numerical analysis in addition to background material for students from both engineering and economics perspectives. A wide range of topics is covered, including standard numerical analysis methods, Monte Carlo methods to simulate systems affected by significant uncertainty, and optimization methods to find an optimal set of decisions.
