Book Description

The new edition of this influential textbook, geared towards graduate or advanced undergraduate students, teaches the statistics necessary for financial engineering. In doing so, it illustrates concepts using financial markets and economic data, R Labs with real-data exercises, and graphical and analytic methods for modeling and diagnosing modeling errors. Financial engineers now have access to enormous quantities of data. To make use of these data, the powerful methods in this book, particularly about volatility and risks, are essential. Strengths of this fully-revised edition include major additions to the R code and the advanced topics covered. Individual chapters cover, among other topics, multivariate distributions, copulas, Bayesian computations, risk management, multivariate volatility and cointegration. Suggested prerequisites are basic knowledge of statistics and probability, matrices and linear algebra, and calculus. There is an appendix on probability, statistics and linear algebra. Practicing financial engineers will also find this book of interest.

Reviews

Book under review is aimed at Master’s students in a financial engineering program and spans the gap between some very basic finance concepts and some very advanced statistical concepts … . The book is evidently intended as, and is best approached as, a kind of working text, giving students the opportunity to work in detail through a variety of examples. The substantial chapters on regression and time series are particularly helpful in this regard. There is lots of useful R code and many example analyses.
