Summary:Risk control and derivative pricing have become of major concern to financial institutions. The need for adequate statistical tools to measure an anticipate the amplitude of the potential moves of financial markets is clearly expressed, in particular for derivative markets. Classical theories, however, are based on simplified assumptions and lead to a systematic (and sometimes dramatic) underestimation of real risks. Theory of Financial Risk and Derivative Pricing summarizes recent theoretical developments, some of which were inspired by statistical physics. Starting from the detailed analysis of market data, one can take into account more faithfully the real behaviour of financial markets (in particular the 'rare events') for asset allocation, derivative pricing and hedging, and risk control. This book will be of interest to physicists curious about finance, quantitative analysts in financial institutions, risk managers and graduate students in mathematical finance.
