The Basics of Financial Mathematics

The Basics of Financial Mathematics

Number of pages: 106

These are lecture notes on mathematical finance. Mathematical finance is not about predicting the price of a stock. What it is about is figuring out the price of options and derivatives. The sections of these notes can be grouped into five categories: elementary probability, the binomial asset pricing model, advanced probability, the continuous model, and term structure models.
