Customer Reviews

Average customer reviews for From Black-Scholes to Black Holes

One of the classics

This is truly one of the "classic" collections in derivative pricing....from the 'golden era' of the market development - starting where Black-Scholes left off, developing ideas around hedging and the cracks in the model that were already apparent.
