Mathematical Finance and Probability : A Discrete Introduction
The material will be accessible to students and practitioners having a working knowledge of linear algebra and calculus. All additional material is developed from the very beginning as needed. In particular, the book also offers an introduction to modern probability theory, albeit mostly within the context of finite sample spaces.
The style of presentation will appeal to financial economics students seeking an elementary but rigorous introduction to the subject; mathematics and physics students looking for an opportunity to become acquainted with this modern applied topic; and mathematicians, physicists or quantitatively inclined economists working in the financial industry.
