Start your review of Financial Calculus Write a review Shelves: finance , non-fiction This is a very nice, reasonably concise little monograph. While some background knowledge of options and Black-Scholes is appropriate, this is a fairly self-contained introduction to risk-neutral pricing. The real value of this book lies in how successfully it motivates each of the pieces of theoretical machinery used in risk-neutral asset pricing: equivalent martingale measures, Ito Calculus, and so on. This book will be especially useful to people with a background in economic theory who are having trouble making the conceptual link between risk aversion, subjective-expected utility theory and pricing via equivalent martingale measures. Without a proper background to these topics, certain intuitive statements made in this book can be misleading.

While this is true for a simple binomial model, in continuous time filtrations have a much more subtle nature — this is where a suitable background in measure theory comes in handy.

Lists with This Book. One concern I have is with calfulus assumption of Brownian price movements, for which Baxter and Rennie offer no more than hand-waving support — but where, given the number of times they wave their hands, they clearly realise there is a problem.

Financial Calculus by Martin Baxter. One strength of Financial Calculus is that, while it is rigorous and the approach is quite abstract — it assumes familiarity with calculus and a general competence with formal mathematics — concrete worked examples are used to anchor the theory and assist intuition.

Financial Calculus: An Introduction to Derivative Pricing

And chapter five, which I only glanced over, builds progressively more complex models for interest rates. Chapter four applies and extends this to other kinds of securities: Financial Calculus is a presentation of the mathematics behind derivative pricing, building up to the Black-Scholes theorem and then extending the theory to a range of different financial instruments. This is a very nice, reasonably concise little monograph. Jan 31, Neal Groothuis rated it it was amazing. Beginning with the discrete case, chapter two introduces a simple binomial tree model.
