ELEMENTARY STOCHASTIC CALCULUS THOMAS MIKOSCH PDF

When reading the title you may wonder how stochastic calculus can be elementary. Well, it really can't, it just depends on how you look at it. Elementary Stochastic Calculus is meant to provide an intuitive introduction to the subject. This is not a deep measure theoretic approach to explaining stochastic calculus.

When reading the title you may wonder how stochastic calculus can be elementary. Well, it really can't, it just depends on how you look at it. Elementary Stochastic Calculus is meant to provide an intuitive introduction to the subject. This is not a deep measure theoretic approach to explaining stochastic calculus.

In only pages he does indeed achieve this. Don't get me wrong, the book is technical to the extent of the actual theory of stochastic calculus. However, it does not even come close to some other texts, such as Introduction to Stochastic Calculus with Applications, by Klebaner, which is very technical. The book assumes familiarity with calculus and elementary probability theory.

The first part almost half of the book provides the reader with some preliminaries from probability theory and stochastic processes. The rest of the book deals with the stochastic integrals, SDEs and finally some applications of stochastic calculus in finance. Most of the important concepts are boxed, which provides a nice reference for later use. The discussion is elegant and intuitive.

There is no formal presentation of the concepts in a theorem-proof style. Technical concepts are presented without proof. There are plenty of examples scattered throughout the text. There are no official problems at the end of the chapter, but rather the author asks questions within the discussion.

What are some drawbacks of the book? Well, certainly the lack of exercises is one and probably the most serious one. Another problem, which is less serious, is the actual application to finance.

There is one, very small, chapter devoted to applications. The author explains the basic aspects of option theory and moves on to the famous Black-Scholes equation. Reader more interested in applications in finance should look elsewhere. An advanced reader with a strong mathematical background in mathematical and functional analysis and measure theory will find this book inadequate. However, this is an introductory text and as such it should be read.

She hold a Masters degree in statistics from Rice University. Her main research areas are in mathematical finance; more precisely, statistical mehods of credit and market risk. Apart from the academic work she does consulting work for financial institutions.

Would you like to tell us about a lower price? If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? Modelling with the Ito integral or stochastic differential equations has become increasingly important in various applied fields, including physics, biology, chemistry and finance. However, stochastic calculus is based on a deep mathematical theory. This book is suitable for the reader without a deep mathematical background.
