Merino / Koch Medina Mathematical Finance and Probability

This self-contained book presents the theory underlying the valuation of derivative financial instruments, which is becoming a standard part of the professional toolbox in the financial industry. It provides great insight into the underlying economic ideas in a very readable form, putting the reader in an excellent position to proceed to the more general continuous-time theory.
