Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A graduate level business text providing a working knowledge of how derivatives can be analyzed. Hull (U. of Toronto) keeps non-essential mathematics at a minimum while still rigorously introducing the key components of futures markets and the use of futures for hedging, interest rate futures, swaps, options markets, trading strategies, binomial trees, the Black-Scholes analysis, numerical procedures, models of the yield curve, and credit risk and regulatory capital. The conclusion, thankfully, reviews the key concepts and additional equations are presented at the end of the discussions. The text assumes the student has had introductory courses in finance, probability and statistics. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
