Student-Friendly Coverage of Probability, Statistical Methods, Simulation, and Modeling Tools
Incorporating feedback from instructors and researchers who used the previous edition, Probability and Statistics for Computer Scientists, Second Edition helps students understand general methods of stochastic...

"Professional Financial Computing Using Excel and VBA is an admirable exposition that bridges the theoretical underpinnings of financial engineering and its application which usually appears as a "black-box" software application. The book opens the black-box and reveals the architecture of risk-modeling and financial...

Quantitative Finance is expanding rapidly. One of the aspects ofthe recent financial crisis is that, given the complexity offinancial products, the demand for people with high numeracy skillsis likely to grow and this means more recognition will be given toQuantitative Finance in existing and new course structuresworldwide. Evidence has...

The importance of path-integral methods in theoretical physics can hardly be disputed. Their applications in most branches of modern physics have proved to be extremely fruitful not only for solving already existing problems but also as a guide for the formulation and development of essentially new ideas and approaches in the description of...

In recent years, Fourier transform methods have emerged as one of the major methodologies for the evaluation of derivative contracts, largely due to the need to strike a balance between the extension of existing pricing models beyond the traditional Black-Scholes setting and a need to evaluate prices consistently with the market...

Solving multi-objective problems is an evolving effort, and computer science and other related disciplines have given rise to many powerful deterministic and stochastic techniques for addressing these large-dimensional optimization problems. Evolutionary algorithms are one such generic stochastic approach that has proven to be successful and widely...

This book was written in response to the growing demand for a text that provides a unified treatment of linear and nonlinear complex valued adaptive filters, and methods for the processing of general complex signals (circular and noncircular). It brings together adaptive filtering algorithms for feedforward (transversal) and feedback...

Although studies on multiobjective mathematical programming under uncertainty have been accumulated and several books on multiobjective mathematical programming under uncertainty have been published (e.g., Stancu-Minasian (1984); Slowinski and Teghem (1990); Sakawa (1993); Lai and Hwang (1994); Sakawa (2000)), there seems to be no book which...

Biological systems are inherently stochastic and uncertain. Thus, research in bioinformatics, biomedical engineering and computational biology has to deal with a large amount of uncertainties.

Fuzzy logic has shown to be a powerful tool in capturing different uncertainties in engineering systems. In recent years, fuzzy logic based modeling and...

Optimization is an extremely important area in science and technology which provides
powerful and useful tools and techniques for the formulation and solution of
a multitude of problems in which we wish, or need, to find a best possible option
or solution. It has been an important area of research for more than half a century,...

This monograph is a concise introduction to the stochastic calculus of variations (also known as Malliavin calculus) for processes with jumps. It is written for researchers and graduate students who are interested in Malliavin calculus for jump processes. In this book processes "with jumps" includes both pure jump processes and...
