Présentation de l'éditeur

An invaluable resource for quantitative analysts who need to run models that assist in option pricing and risk management. This concise, practical hands on guide to Monte Carlo simulation introduces standard and advanced methods to the increasing complexity of derivatives portfolios. Ranging from pricing more complex derivatives, such as American and Asian options, to measuring Value at Risk, or modelling complex market dynamics, simulation is the only method general enough to capture the complexity and Monte Carlo simulation is the best pricing and risk management method available.
The book is packed with numerous examples using real world data and is supplied with a CD to aid in the use of the examples.

Quatrième de couverture

"There is no book on the market to compare with Dr Jäckel′s. All the techniques, the tricks, the pitfalls of this important methodology are covered in detail and with great insight. This is no book on abstract theory, Dr Jäckel is a practitioner who has implemented every single one of these ideas. He has done all the hard work, so you don′t have to." Paul Wilmott

"Few expert practitioners also have the academic expertise to match Peter Jäckel′s in this area, let alone take the trouble to write a most accessible, comprehensive and yet self contained text. This book is a delight to read and contains a wealth of information that is essential for anyone involved with implementing Monte Carlo methods in finance." Professor Carol Alexander, ISMA Centre, University of Reading, UK

" This book is a very welcome addition to the growing literature on applied quantitative methods in finance. Dr Jäckel has done the field a service in combining both a thorough review of ′standard′ material with techniques that were learned on the job as a quant at top financial institutions." Michael Curran, Quantin′ Leap

Based on the author′s own experience, Monte Carlo Methods in Finance adopts a practical flavour throughout, the emphasis being on financial modelling and derivatives pricing. Numerous real world examples help the reader foster an intuitive grasp of the mathematical and numerical techniques needed to solve particular financial problems. At the same time, the book tries to give a detailed explanation of the theoretical foundations of the various methods and algorithms presented.

Monte Carlo methods have been used in the financial community for many years for addressing complex financial calculations. Recent advances by both practitioners and academic researchers in the area of fast convergence methods, together with the improvements achieved by the manufacturers of computer hardware, make Monte Carlo simulations more and more frequently the method of choice. In this long needed book on modern Monte Carlo methods in finance, Peter Jäckel provides an introduction to many of the leading edge techniques available.

Conflict of interest pervades the field of finance on every level including the intellectual level.
Often you might find books reviewed most favorably by
leading academic researchers to fall far short of the praise constituting a legal liability for the author's employer and
inducing a suspicion that the reviewer had material interests at stake.
For this reason we are grateful that Amazon has a liberal return policy. This book however you will not want to send back.
It hits the mark in several important aspects:
1. Level of detail.
The presentation is detailed enough for you to be able to translate the description into computer code but not so detailed that this step is immediate.
This allows an elegant and fluent style of writing.
Descriptions that are detailed enough to translate into code immediately almost certainly lack aesthetic qualities and one usually does not read them again them once the relevant information has been extracted. This is not the case here. I find myself browsing the material again after some algorithm has already been implemented and enjoying the experience.
The author has the ability to articulate complicated concepts clearly and without resort to heavy notation.
2. Mathematical rigour.
The mathematics is impeccable. In my own experience this can be said of fewer than 10% of the books in the field of finance.
The prerequisites are minimal. You have to know the most basic properties of Brownian motion (barely more than the definition)
and be familiar with the notion of a probability density.
Nonetheless several highly interesting subjects are treated in much detail (for example effective dimensionality reduction in conjunction with the application of low discrepancy sequences).
3. Choice of subject.
The techniques discussed are those used by leading investment banks. This is unsurprising since the author himself works at such an institution. The book is quite different from one devoted to Monte Carlo methods in physics, genetics or polymer science.
4. Physical appearance.
Page size, page layout, font selection and binding are all of high quality. The book has a wealth of diagrams communicating interesting information.
I love it and believe that you will too.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 I can NOT follow the math and NO CODE! 24 août 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
You better already know the basics of Monte Carlo Simulation
to get anything out of the book.
I STRONGLY disagree with one reviewer who thinks
all one needs to know is :
1) The definition of Brownian Motion and
2) What a Probability distribution is.
FAT chance.
The book requires knowing Linear Algebra, Probability,
PDEs, Stochastic Modelling, and SDEs to be of any use.
Where's the CODE, baby!
There are very few examples put into code!
One reviewer on Amazon.com, says the book is so
detailed you don't need code. Funny, I have never
seen anything "so detailed" that an example (code)
would make the explanation less clear!

if you're a quant, you might really love this book
if you're a person who wants to have a "basic" understanding how to use MC for consulting or product pricing with examples, you got the wrong book (not mentioning that your maths must be pretty good).
if you're looking for an Excel example on how to price some basic options, i highly recommend Jackson & Staunton or Wilmott.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 It ain't bad, it ain't great, it ain't complete, but it ain't wrong.... 27 mars 2007
Par Bachelier - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
What this book is:

1) Dated. PJ wrote this book in 2002, using thoughts and techniques applicable to a Pentium 4 Xeon world (2001). In 2002 folks often ran option book position MC simulations *overnight.*

* Also, GOOGLE Scholar wasn't out yet....if you wanted to collect all the papers and abstracts on MC methods in 2002 you had to talk to a librarian.

2) Basic. Well, now it is basic....but when it first came out it was sharply focused on finance and it was three years ahead of Glasserman's book.

3) This book is okay for what it is, which is a topical outline, some lecture notes introducing a reasonably well math trained audience to MC and finance. In 2001 MC was a cutting edge new thing. People forget what 2001 was like: Heck, one bank was flogging that it had a 200 node binomial model programmed in Excel available for customer use on an *appointment* basis. That was the state of things at the time.

What this book is not:

1) a cookbook. There is no "cut and paste" code in here. In 2001-2 believe it or not code was made by the sweat of your brow and was considered highly proprietary. Okay so in 2007 we just cobble together Franken-code and debug, but that wasn't the way it was in 2002. There weren't "Numerical Recipes in [code flavour of the month] sites. And folks were fired for showing code ot other people.

2) It won't teach you math. You are supposed to have learned a lot of the stuff this assumes you know.

3) It won't teach you programming in [pick your language] or its step-daughters.

4) Complete. This is expanded lecture notes. Is every low discrepancy method covered? (and all its weird names) No. Is every Greek covered and every possible expression? No. Is every application covered? Hmmm, still looking for that hybrid bond model in here.....not even in the index.

5) A replacement for work. This is a "topics in" and "helpful directions" and "friendly discussion" book. It does not solve your problem on your platform for your goals. It also won't wipe your rear end, buy you beers, tuck you in at night, or let you call it "Rosie." As in Rosie fingers and Harry palm.

So what is this book good for? Well, it is a not too bad a primer, it builds your vocabulary and helps your conceptualization of goals and purposes, and if you move on to Glasserman your comprehension will be much higher, although I'm not sure he covers that much more that much better.

But if you come from a science or math background that has used MC for other purposes, and you know programming, you can probably figure out most of what PJ covers on your own.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An advanced approach to math methods behind finance 19 septembre 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Very interesting and well written book reviewing more advanced mathematical concepts which might be relevant for finance engineering - not limited to Monte Carlo methods. The author seems to have a firm background in theoretical physics. Definitely not for simpletons.
