The Basics of Financial Mathematics
by Richard F. Bass
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.

The selection of topics in this text has formed the core of a one semester course in applied mathematics at the Arctic University of Norway. The class has, during its existence, drawn participants from both applied mathematics and physics.

This course develops mathematical techniques which are useful in solving 'real-world' problems involving differential equations. The course embraces the ethos of mathematical modelling, and aims to show in a practical way how equations 'work'.
