Description - New Directions in Mathematical Finance by Paul Wilmott

"New Directions in Mathematical Finance" is based on a conference held in Milan in December 1999 on the theme of financial modelling. The conference gathered together leading names from the world of quantitative finance to discuss modelling techniques in a wide variety of areas of financial engineering. The contributions featured in this volume are all new items that are based on each leading speaker's presentation topic at the conference. The themes covered in each chapter entry include: dynamic, deterministic and static optimal portfolio strategies in a mean-variance framework under stochastic interest rates; equity dividend bonds; pricing bond options in a worst-case scenario; a role for psychology in explaining investor behaviour; log-concavity and elasticity of option prices.
