Pub. Date: 11/01/1998
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This volume shows how to invest assets over time to achieve satisfactory returns subject to uncertainties, various constraints and liability commitments. The papers utilize several approaches and integrate a number of techniques as well as discussing a variety of models that have either been implemented, are close to being implemented or represent new innovative approaches that may lead to future novel applications, that is, financial engineering. This is essential reading for all involved in analyzing the financial markets.
