Category: Business & Economics
View: 3673This textbook contains the fundamentals for an undergraduate course in mathematical finance aimed primarily at students of mathematics. Assuming only a basic knowledge of probability and calculus, the material is presented in a mathematically rigorous and complete way. The book covers the time value of money, including the time structure of interest rates, bonds and stock valuation; derivative securities (futures, options), modelling in discrete time, pricing and hedging, and many other core topics. With numerous examples, problems and exercises, this book is ideally suited for independent study.

View: 6419The theory of probability and mathematical statistics is becoming an indispensable discipline in many branches of science and engineering. This is caused by increasing significance of various uncertainties affecting performance of complex technological systems. Fundamental concepts and procedures used in analysis of these systems are often based on the theory of probability and mathematical statistics. The book sets out fundamental principles of the probability theory, supplemented by theoretical models of random variables, evaluation of experimental data, sampling theory, distribution updating and tests of statistical hypotheses. Basic concepts of Bayesian approach to probability and two-dimensional random variables, are also covered. Examples of reliability analysis and risk assessment of technological systems are used throughout the book to illustrate basic theoretical concepts and their applications. The primary audience for the book includes undergraduate and graduate students of science and engineering, scientific workers and engineers and specialists in the field of reliability analysis and risk assessment. Except basic knowledge of undergraduate mathematics no special prerequisite is required.

An Introduction to Symbolic and Complex Computation with Applications
Author: John F. Holland
View: 3040When surveying the computer technology available for working out mathematical problems, one fact quickly becomes apparent-most personal and super- computers are not designed for computation. Without the aid of costly and often only partially compatible software programs, most computer operating systems cannot perform mathematical computations. Mathematics textbooks and handbooks provide useful equations, but they do not offer accessible means for evaluation. The HP48SX, an object-oriented computer containing a custom CPU and operating system, is designed specifically for this task. With a low-cost computer chip and an inexpensive calculator, the HP 48SX Engineering Mathematics Library: An Introduction to Symbolic and Complex Computation with Applications package offers users an affordable and versatile alternative for solving simple and complex problems. Key Features * Offers single-button plotting of all HP 48, MATHLIB, and all real and complex functions stored in the VAR directory-linear, semi-log and log-log lots with titles and labeled axes * Creates 36 user-defined programmable command menus, instead of offering users stock, menu-driven commands * Supports many different fields of study, (including physicists, and electrical, mechanical, and aerospace engineers), where computation ranges from basic to advanced mathematics * Provides extensive symbolic algebra, calculus, and linear algebra tools * Features menus and a manual logically built around subject areas * Allows for over 300 tabulations of complex math functions, most within 10-digit accuracy * 100 statistical operations and tests plus 50 statistical probability distributions and their inverses * 100 data and signal processing operations * 200 vector and matrix commands, plus 50 symbolic array commands * 200 algebra operations, including 3 powerful complex-coefficient polynomial root-solvers * 50 data editing, sorting, windowing, clipping, and peak and valley analysis commands * Can solve a 40 x 40 linear system of equations with iterative refinement in under 4 minutes

View: 1340Unlike most engineering maths texts, this book does not assume a firm grasp of GCSE maths, and unlike low-level general maths texts, the content is tailored specifically to the needs of engineers. The result is a unique book written for engineering students that takes a starting point below GCSE level. Basic Engineering Mathematics is therefore ideal for students of a wide range of abilities, especially for those who find the theoretical side of mathematics difficult. Now in its fifth edition, Basic Engineering Mathematics is an established textbook, with the previous edition selling nearly 7500 copies. All students that require a fundamental knowledge of mathematics for engineering will find this book essential reading. The content has been designed primarily to meet the needs of students studying Level 2 courses, including GCSE Engineering, the Diploma, and the BTEC First specifications. Level 3 students will also find this text to be a useful resource for getting to grips with essential mathematics concepts, because the compulsory topics in BTEC National and A Level Engineering courses are also addressed.
