An elementary introduction to stochastic interest rate modeling by Nicolas Privault( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interest rate modeling and the pricing of related derivatives remain subjects of increasing importance in financial mathematics and risk management. This book provides an accessible introduction to these topics by a step-by-step presentation of concepts with a focus on explicit calculations. Each chapter is accompanied with exercises and their complete solutions, making the book suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate level students. This second edition retains the main features of the first edition while incorporating a complete revision of the text as well as additional exercises with their solutions, and a new introductory chapter on credit risk. The stochastic interest rate models considered range from standard short rate to forward rate models, with a treatment of the pricing of related derivatives such as caps and swaptions under forward measures. Some more advanced topics including the BGM model and an approach to its calibration are also covered
Functional equations on groups by Henrik Stetkær( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume provides an accessible and coherent introduction to some of the scientific progress on functional equations on groups in the last two decades. It presents the latest methods of treating the topic and contains new and transparent proofs. Its scope extends from the classical functional equations on the real line to those on groups, in particular, non-abelian groups. This volume presents, in careful detail, a number of illustrative examples like the cosine equation on the Heisenberg group and on the group SL(2,R). Some of the examples are not even seen in existing monographs. Thus, it is an essential source of reference for further investigations

Principles of radiation interaction in matter and detection by Claude Leroy( )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, like the first and second editions, addresses the fundamental principles of interaction between radiation and matter and the principles of particle detection and detectors in a wide scope of fields, from low to high energy, including space physics and medical environment. It provides abundant information about the processes of electromagnetic and hadronic energy deposition in matter, detecting systems, performance of detectors and their optimization. The third edition includes additional material covering, for instance: mechanisms of energy loss like the inverse Compton scattering, corrections due to the Landau-Pomeranchuk-Migdal effect, an extended relativistic treatment of nucleus-nucleus screened Coulomb scattering, and transport of charged particles inside the heliosphere. Furthermore, the displacement damage (NIEL) in semiconductors has been revisited to account for recent experimental data and more comprehensive comparisons with results previously obtained. This book will be of great use to graduate students and final-year undergraduates as a reference and supplement for courses in particle, astroparticle, space physics and instrumentation. A part of the book is directed toward courses in medical physics. The book can also be used by researchers in experimental particle physics at low, medium, and high energy who are dealing with instrumentation

Nurturing reflective learners in mathematics : yearbook 2013 by Association of Mathematics Educators (Singapore)( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fourth volume in the series of yearbooks by the Association of Mathematics Educators in Singapore entitled Reasoning, Communication and Connections in Mathematics is unique in that it focuses on a single theme in mathematics education. The objective is to encourage teachers and researchers to advance reasoning, communication and connections in mathematics classrooms. Several renowned international researchers in the field have published their work in this volume. The fifteen chapters of the book illustrate evidence-based practices that school teachers and researchers can experiment with in their own classrooms to bring about meaningful learning outcomes. Three major themes: mathematical tasks, classroom discourse, and connectivity within and beyond mathematics, shape the ideas underpinning reasoning, communication and connections in these chapters. The book makes a significant contribution towards mathematical processes essential for learners of mathematics. It is a good resource for mathematics educators and research students

Half-discrete Hilbert-type inequalities by Bicheng Yang( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1934, G.H. Hardy et al. published a book entitled "Inequalities", in which a few theorems about Hilbert-type inequalities with homogeneous kernels of degree-one were considered. Since then, the theory of Hilbert-type discrete and integral inequalities is almost built by Prof. Bicheng Yang in their four published books. This monograph deals with half-discrete Hilbert-type inequalities. By means of building the theory of discrete and integral Hilbert-type inequalities, and applying the technique of Real Analysis and Summation Theory, some kinds of half-discrete Hilbert-type inequalities with the general homogeneous kernels and non-homogeneous kernels are built. The relating best possible constant factors are all obtained and proved. The equivalent forms, operator expressions and some kinds of reverses with the best constant factors are given. We also consider some multi-dimensional extensions and two kinds of multiple inequalities with parameters and variables, which are some extensions of the two-dimensional cases. As applications, a large number of examples with particular kernels are also discussed. The authors have been successful in applying Hilbert-type discrete and integral inequalities to the topic of half-discrete inequalities. The lemmas and theorems in this book provide an extensive account of these kinds of inequalities and operators. This book can help many readers make good progress in research on Hilbert-type inequalities and their applications

Three classes of nonlinear stochastic partial differential equations by Jie Xiong( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of measure-valued processes in random environments has seen some intensive research activities in recent years whereby interesting nonlinear stochastic partial differential equations (SPDEs) were derived. Due to the nonlinearity and the non-Lipschitz continuity of their coefficients, new techniques and concepts have recently been developed for the study of such SPDEs. These include the conditional Laplace transform technique, the conditional mild solution, and the bridge between SPDEs and some kind of backward stochastic differential equations. This volume provides an introduction to these topics with the aim of attracting more researchers into this exciting and young area of research. It can be considered as the first book of its kind. The tools introduced and developed for the study of measure-valued processes in random environments can be used in a much broader area of nonlinear SPDEs
