Computational finance

Basic principles underlying the transactions of financial markets are tied to probability and statistics. Accordingly it is natural that books devoted to mathematical finance are dominated by stochastic methods. Only in recent years, spurred by the enormous economical success of financial derivatives, a need for sophisticated computational technology has developed. For example, to price an American put, quantitative analysts have asked for the numerical solution of a freeboundary partial differential equation.

It was in late 1995 to early 1996 (shortly after the birth of his first daughter Claire) that the author first began to read the currently available finance books in order to write C/Cþþ financial software. However, apart fromthe book Options Futures and Other Derivatives by John Hull, he found very little information of practical help and had to trawl through the original journal articles in the Bodleian library for more information. Even then much information on how to implement and test various models was not included.

This book reports initial efforts in providing some useful extensions in financial modeling; further work is necessary to complete the research agenda. The demonstrated extensions in this book in the computation and modeling of optimal control in finance have shown the need and potential for further areas of study in financial modeling. Potentials are in both the mathematical structure and computational aspects of dynamic optimization. There are needs for more organized and coordinated computational approaches.

This chapter deals with the most basic concepts in finance: future value, present value, and internal rate of return. These concepts tell you how much your money will grow if deposited in a bank (future value), how much promised future payments are worth today (present value), and what percentage rate of return you’re getting on your investments (internal rate of return).

Stochastic Calculus of Variations (or Malliavin Calculus) consists, in brief, in constructing and exploiting natural differentiable structures on abstract probability spaces; in other words, Stochastic Calculus of Variations proceeds from a merging of differential calculus and probability theory. As optimization under a random environment is at the heart of mathematical finance, and as differential calculus is of paramount importance for the search of extrema, it is not surprising that Stochastic Calculus of Variations appears in mathematical finance.

To fulfill the promise of systems integration, a wide range of component technologies—including databases, operating systems, architectures, networks, security mechanisms, human interfaces, artificial intelligence, and communications—must work together. Expertise about the many domains in which systems integration is applied (finance, retail, transportation, and so on) must also be invoked. Thus an interdisciplinary approach is essential

This paper addresses the problem of developing a large semantic lexicon for natural language processing. The increas~g availability of machine readable documents offers an opportunity to the field of lexieal semantics, by providing experimental evidence of word uses (online texts) and word definitions (online dictionaries). The system presented hereafter, PETRARCA, detects word e.occurrences from a large sample of press agency releases on finance and economics, and uses these associations to build a easebased semantic lexicon. ...

Finance is one of the fastest growing areas in the modern banking and corporate world. This, together with the sophistication of modern financial products, provides a rapidly growing impetus for new mathematical models and modern mathematical methods. Indeed, the area is an expanding source for novel and relevant "realworld" mathematics. In this book, the authors describe the modeling of financial derivative products from an applied mathematician's viewpoint, from modeling to analysis to elementary computation.
