By Igor V. Evstigneev, Thorsten Hens, Klaus Reiner Schenk-Hoppé

This textbook is an easy creation to the foremost themes in mathematical finance and fiscal economics - nation-states of rules that considerably overlap yet are usually handled individually from one another. Our aim is to provide the highlights within the box, with the emphasis at the monetary and financial content material of the types, strategies and effects. The publication presents a unique, unified remedy of the topic by means of deriving each one subject from universal basic ideas and exhibiting the interrelations among the most important subject matters. even if the presentation is totally rigorous, with a few infrequent and obviously marked exceptions, the ebook restricts itself to using merely undemanding mathematical recommendations and methods. No complex arithmetic (such as stochastic calculus) is used.
