From the Publisher"The title of this book my be somewhat misleading— as an edited volume, it contains several papers on some issues in quantitative finance. Most contributions have a computational/numerical slant. It is no surprise that several papers concentrate on heavy-tailed models, in particular Pareto-type models figure prominently. For me, the highlight is the paper by Kohatsu-Higa and Montero on "Malliavan Calculus in Finance". This seventy plus page paper gives a very readable introduction to this imporatnt field of current research. A further enjoyable paper is "Modern Heuirstics for Finance Problems: A Survey of Selected Mehtods and Applications: by Schlottmann and Seese."
