As investment firms increasingly rely on advanced quantitative financial models to generate profits, large "quant" departments staffed by former physicists, mathematicians, and computer scientists have become routine on Wall Street. This volume provides an inside look at life in the arcane world of quantitative finance
Models behaving badly : why confusing illusion with reality can lead to disaster, on Wall Street and in life by Emanuel Derman( Book )

Though financial models imitate the style of physics and employ the language of mathematics, ultimately they deal with human beings. There is a fundamental difference between the aims and potential achievements of physics and those of finance. In physics, theories aim for a description of reality; in finance, at best, models can shoot only for a simplistic and very limited approximation to it. When we make a model involving human beings, we are trying to force the ugly stepsister's foot into Cinderella's pretty glass slipper. It doesn't fit without cutting off some of the essential parts. Physicists and economists have been too enthusiastic to acknowledge the limits of their equations in the sphere of human behavior which of course is what economics is all about. Models.Behaving.Badly includes a personal account of Derman's childhood encounters with failed models, the oppressions of apartheid and the utopia of the kibbutz. He describes his experience as a physicist on Wall Street, the models quants generated, the benefits they brought and the problems, practical and ethical, they caused. Derman takes a close look at what a model is, and then highlights the differences between the successes of modeling in physics and its failures in economics. Describing the collapse of the subprime mortgage CDO market in 2007, Derman urges us to stop the naïve reliance on these models, and offers suggestions for mending them. This is a fascinating, lyrical, and very human look behind the curtain at the intersection between mathematics and human nature
Models. Behaving. Badly warum die Verwechslung von Theorie und Wirklichkeit zum Desaster führt - im Leben und am Finanzmarkt by Emanuel Derman( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In seinem Werk erklärt Emanuel Derman, warum Menschen anders - und zwar unvorhersehbar - agieren als Atome und Planeten und warum aus kleinen Irritationen, die sie verursachen, Chaos von gigantischen Ausmaen entstehen kann. Finanzmodelle funktionieren nur unter eingeschränkten Bedingungen, nämlich wenn die Welt sich nicht allzu sehr verändert und nicht allzu weit von ihrem aktuellen Zustand abweicht. Und sie scheitern kläglich, sobald sie aus dem Ruder läuft. "Ihr iPad funktioniert, weil irgendjemand die Grundlagen der Quantenphysik verstanden hat und etwas bauen kann, das tut, was Sie wollen, wenn Sie einen Knopf drücken. Quantitative Finanzmarktanalysten benutzen die gleiche Art von Mathematik, um das eigenwillige Gebaren der internationalen Finanzmärkte zu beschreiben. In der Theorie sieht das alles schön überschaubar aus, doch in Wirklichkeit handelt es sich um eine vage Analogie, die in die Irre führt, weil sie behauptet, Aktienkurse verhalten sich wie die Ausbreitung von Dampf. Das ist keine Beschreibung der Wirklichkeit."
