A comprehensive handbook including self-contained chapters
Emphasis on the operational tools that can be used for decision making
Chapters written by distinguished contributors in the financial engineering field
Special focus on methodologies that can be used to address financial engineering problems, i.e., statistical and econometric approaches, multiple criteria decision making, and fuzzy sets
Over the past decade the financial and business environments have undergone significant changes. During the same period several advances have been made within the field of financial engineering, involving both the methodological tools as well as the application areas.
This comprehensive edited volume discusses the most recent advances within the field of financial engineering, focusing not only on the description of the existing areas in financial engineering research, but also on the new methodologies that have been developed for modeling and addressing financial engineering problems. This book is divided into four major parts, each covering different aspects of financial engineering and modeling such as portfolio management and trading, risk management, applications of operation research methods, and credit rating models.
Handbook of Financial Engineering is intended for financial engineers, researchers, applied mathematicians, and graduate students interested in real-world applications to financial engineering.
