Financial Engineering and Computation: Principles, by Yuh-Dauh Lyuu

By Yuh-Dauh Lyuu

These days scholars and execs desiring to paintings in any sector of finance needs to grasp not just complicated recommendations and mathematical types but in addition the right way to enforce those versions computationally. This entire textual content combines the idea and arithmetic in the back of monetary engineering with an emphasis on computation, based on the best way monetary engineering is practiced in modern capital markets. in contrast to so much books on investments, monetary engineering, or spinoff securities, the e-book starts off from very uncomplicated rules in finance and steadily builds up the idea. It bargains an intensive grounding within the topic for MBAs in finance, scholars of engineering and sciences who're pursuing a occupation in finance, researchers in computational finance, process analysts, and fiscal engineers. besides the speculation, the writer provides quite a few algorithms for pricing, chance administration, and portfolio administration. The emphasis is on pricing monetary and by-product securities: bonds, ideas, futures, forwards, rate of interest derivatives, mortgage-backed securities, bonds with embedded concepts, and extra. every one software is taken care of in a quick, self-contained bankruptcy for prepared reference use.

Introduction to HOL: A Theorem-Proving Environment for Higher-Order Logic

HOL is an explanation improvement approach meant for purposes to either and software program. it really is mostly utilized in methods: for without delay proving theorems, and as theorem-proving help for application-specific verification structures. HOL is at present being utilized to a wide selection of difficulties, together with the specification and verification of severe platforms.

Example text

Bonds usually refer to long-term debts. 5 The redemption date or maturity date specifies the date on which the loan will be repaid. A bond pays interest at the coupon rate on its par value at regular time intervals until the maturity date. The payment is usually made semiannually in the United States. The redemption value is the amount to be paid at a redemption date. A bond is redeemed at par if the redemption value is the same as the par value. Redemption date and maturity date may differ. There are several ways to redeem or retire a bond.

This bound compares favorably with the O(n log[ (b − a)/ ]) bound of the bisection method. A variant of the Newton–Raphson method that does not require differentiation is the secant method [35]. This method starts with two approximations, x0 and x1 , and computes the (k + 1)th approximation by xk+1 = xk − f (xk)(xk − xk−1 ) . f (xk) − f (xk−1 ) The secant method may be preferred when the calculation of f is to be avoided. 618, is slightly worse than that of the Newton–Raphson method, 2, but better than that of the bisection method, 1.

10. Besides the two reasons cited for causing bond prices to change (interest rate movements and a nonpar bond moving toward maturity), other reasons include changes in the yield spread to T-bonds for non-T-bonds, changes in the perceived credit quality of the issuer, and changes in the value of the embedded option. 5 Prove that a level-coupon bond will be sold at par if its coupon rate is the same as the market interest rate. 3 Day Count Conventions Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
