Stochastic Calculus for Finance I: The Binomial Asset Pricing Model (Google eBook)This book evolved from the first ten years of the Carnegie Mellon professional Masterbs program in Computational Finance. The contents of the book have been used successfully with students whose mathematics background consists of calculus and calculusbased probability. The text gives both precise statements of results, plausibility arguments, and even some proofs. But more importantly, intuitive explanations, developed and refined through classroom experience with this material, are provided throughout the book. Volume I introduces the fundamental concepts in a discretetime setting and Volume II builds on this foundation to develop stochastic calculus, martingales, riskneutral pricing, exotic options, and term structure models, all in continuous time. The book includes a selfcontained treatment of the probability theory needed for stochastic calculus, including Brownian motion and its properties. Advanced topics include foreign exchange models, forward measures, and jumpdiffusion processes. Classroomtested exercises conclude every chapter; some of these extend the theory while others are drawn from practical problems in quantitative finance.

Review: Stochastic Calculus for Finance I: The Binomial Asset Pricing Model
User Review  Joecolelife  GoodreadsShreve's book is an excellent introduction to basic options pricing. He not only deals with plain vanilla options, but also shows how the binomial model can be used to to value exotic options. Each ... Read full review
