Statistical Analysis of Financial Data in R (Springer Texts in Statistics)

Buy

Although there are many books on mathematical finance, few deal with the statistical aspects of modern data analysis as applied to financial problems. This textbook fills this gap by addressing some of the most challenging issues facing financial engineers. It shows how sophisticated mathematics and modern statistical techniques can be used in the solutions of concrete financial problems. Concerns of risk management are addressed by the study of extreme values, the fitting of distributions with heavy tails, the computation of values at risk (VaR), and other measures of risk. Principal component analysis (PCA), smoothing, and regression techniques are applied to the construction of yield and forward curves. Time series analysis is applied to the study of temperature options and nonparametric estimation. Nonlinear filtering is applied to Monte Carlo simulations, option pricing and earnings prediction. This textbook is intended for undergraduate students majoring in financial engineering, or graduate students in a Master in finance or MBA program. It is sprinkled with practical examples using market data, and each chapter ends with exercises. Practical examples are solved in the R computing environment. They illustrate problems occurring in the commodity, energy and weather markets, as well as the fixed income, equity and credit markets. The examples, experiments and problem sets are based on the library Rsafd developed for the purpose of the text. The book should help quantitative analysts learn and implement advanced statistical concepts. Also, it will be valuable for researchers wishing to gain experience with financial data, implement and test mathematical theories, and address practical issues that are often ignored or underestimated in academic curricula.

This is the new, fully-revised edition to the book Statistical Analysis of Financial Data in S-Plus.

René Carmona is the Paul M. Wythes '55 Professor of Engineering and Finance at Princeton University in the department of Operations Research and Financial Engineering, and Director of Graduate Studies of the Bendheim Center for Finance. His publications include over one hundred articles and eight books in probability and statistics. He was elected Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics in 1984, and of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics in 2010. He is on the editorial board of several peer-reviewed journals and book series. Professor Carmona has developed computer programs for teaching statistics and research in signal analysis and financial engineering. He has worked for many years on energy, the commodity markets and more recently in environmental economics, and he is recognized as a leading researcher and expert in these areas.

Our journey towards this Festschrift started when realizing that our teacher, mentor, and friend Ursula Gather was going to celebrate her 60th birthday soon. As a researcher, lecturer, scientific advisor, board member, reviewer, editor, Ursula has had a wide impact...
Sparsity: Graphs, Structures, and Algorithms (Algorithms and Combinatorics)
Sparsity: Graphs, Structures, and Algorithms (Algorithms and Combinatorics)
This book offers a systematic study of sparse graphs and sparse finite structures. Although the notion of sparsity appears in various contexts and is typical of a fuzzy notion, the authors present a unifying classification of general classes of structures....

Functional Programming and Input/Output (Distinguished Dissertations in Computer Science)
Functional Programming and Input/Output (Distinguished Dissertations in Computer Science)
A common attraction to functional programming is the ease with which proofs can be given of program properties. A common disappointment with functional programming is the difficulty of expressing input/output (I/O) while at the same time being able to verify programs. Here, the author shows how a theory of functional programming can be smoothly...
