Numerical methods in finance with C++. (English)
Mastering Mathematical Finance. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press (ISBN 978-0-521-17716-0/pbk; 978-1-107-00371-2/hbk; 978-1-139-53398-0/ebook). x, 166~p. \sterling~24.00; \$~39.00/pbk; \sterling~50.00; \$~80.00/hbk; \$~32.00/ebook (2012).
The book is about numerical methods combined with C++ programming skills, driven by concrete computational problems in quantitative finance. It begins with straightforward option pricing on binomial trees, and progresses towards non-linear solvers, Monte Carlo techniques for path-dependent derivative securities, finite-difference methods for partial differential equations, and American options pricing by solving a linear complementary problem. Prior knowledge of numerical methods as well as familiarity with C++ is not a prerequisite. The book is addressed to the readers who is interested in both the numerical techniques and programming language in application to finance.
