Finance Mathematics is devoted to financial markets both with discrete and continuous time, exploring how to make the transition from discrete to continuous time in option pricing. This book features a detailed dynamic model of financial markets with discrete time, for application in real-world environments, along with Martingale measures and martingale criterion and the proven absence of arbitrage. With a focus on portfolio optimization, fair pricing, investment risk, and self-finance, the authors provide numerical methods for solutions and practical financial models, enabling you to solve problems both from mathematical and from financial point of view.

Key Features

  • Calculations of Lower and upper prices, featuring practical examples
  • The simplest functional limit theorem proved for transition from discrete to continuous time
  • Learn how to optimize portfolio in the presence of risk factors


Academics, researchers, and practitioners in quantitative finance, financial risk management, economics and other areas of math, science and engineering
