Interest Rate Management.
Synopsis This work aims to address the needs of both researchers and practitioners. It combines an overview of the mathematics of financial markets with an insight into the practical application of these models to the risk and portfolio management of interest rate derivatives. It can also serve as a textbook for graduate and PhD students in mathematics who want to gain some knowledge about financial markets. The first part of the book is an exposition of advanced stochastic calculus. It defines the theoretical framework for the pricing and hedging of contingent claims with a special focus on interest rate markets. The second part covers a selection of short and long-term oriented risk measures as well as their application to the risk management of interest rate portfolios. Interesting and comprehensive case studies are provided to illustrate the theoretical concepts.
