**The Basics of Financial Mathematics**

by Richard F. Bass

2003**Number of pages**: 106

**Description**:

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.
