Fourier Transform Methods in Finance

Buy

In recent years, Fourier transform methods have emerged as one of the major methodologies for the evaluation of derivative contracts, largely due to the need to strike a balance between the extension of existing pricing models beyond the traditional Black-Scholes setting and a need to evaluate prices consistently with the market quotes.

Fourier Transform Methods in Finance is a practical and accessible guide to pricing financial instruments using Fourier transform. Written by an experienced team of practitioners and academics, it covers Fourier pricing methods; the dynamics of asset prices; non stationary market dynamics; arbitrage free pricing; generalized functions and the Fourier transform method.

Readers will learn how to:

  • compute the Hilbert transform of the pricing kernel under a Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) technique
  • characterise the price dynamics on a market in terms of the characteristic function, allowing for both diffusive processes and jumps
  • apply the concept of characteristic function to non-stationary processes, in particular in the presence of stochastic volatility and more generally time change techniques
  • perform a change of measure on the characteristic function in order to make the price process a martingale
  • recover a general representation of the pricing kernel of the economy in terms of Hilbert transform using the theory of generalised functions
  • apply the pricing formula to the most famous pricing models, with stochastic volatility and jumps.

Junior and senior practitioners alike will benefit from this quick reference guide to state of the art models and market calibration techniques. Not only will it enable them to write an algorithm for option pricing using the most advanced models, calibrate a pricing model on options data, and extract the implied probability distribution in market data, they will also understand the most advanced models and techniques and discover how these techniques have been adjusted for applications in finance.

The Arrows of Time: A Debate in Cosmology (Fundamental Theories of Physics)

The concept of time has fascinated humanity throughout recorded history, and it remains one of the biggest mysteries in science and philosophy. Time is clearly one of the fundamental building blocks of the universe and thus a deeper understanding of nature at a fundamental level also demands a comprehension of time. Furthermore, the origins...

Project Management Demystified
When my old grandfather came back from a long night watching over the local sardine factory he would often say ‘You can never do well as a nightwatchman, my boy’. It took many years of hearing this seven times a week before I realized what he meant. If he did his nightwatchman job perfectly by staying awake all night,...

Java 7 JAX-WS Web Services

Java 7 JAX-WS Web Services starts off with downloading and installing the Oracle GlassFish Server and NetBeans IDE. Although in this book we will be using GlassFish Server 3.1.1 and NetBeans IDE 7.0.1, later versions of GlassFish and NetBeans are also compatible. We then create a JAX-WS web service with Java 7. We shall also discuss the new...
