New publication of a textbook "A First Course in Quantitative Finance"

A comprehensive work on quantitative finance has been published by the distinguished Cambridge University Press. The title “A First Course in Quantitative Finance” extends the successful series from the fields of mathematics, physics, and statistics.

On 600 pages, the textbook introduces quantitative finance from a new perspective. It offers a fresh approach to quantitative finance and utilizes novel features, including stereoscopic images which permit 3D visualization of complex subjects without the need for additional tools.

Offering an integrated approach to the subject, A First Course in Quantitative Finance introduces students to the architecture of complete financial markets before exploring the concepts and models of modern portfolio theory, derivative pricing and fixed income products in both complete and incomplete market settings. Subjects are organized throughout in a way that encourages a gradual and parallel learning process of both the economic concepts and their mathematical descriptions, framed by additional perspectives from classical utility theory, financial economics and behavioral finance.

This textbook is suitable for Master or postgraduate Ph.D. students studying courses in quantitative finance, financial engineering and financial econometrics as part of an economics, finance, econometric or mathematics program.
