|Publication Year:||2015||Title:||Statistics and Data Analysis for Financial Engineering|
|ISBN:||9781493926138||Author:||David Ruppert (author), David S Matteson (author)|
|The new edition of this influential textbook, geared towards graduate or advanced undergraduate students, teaches the statistics necessary for financial engineering. In doing so, it illustrates concepts using financial markets and ecomic data, R Labs with real-data exercises, and graphical and analytic methods for modeling and diagsing modeling errors. These methods are critical because financial engineers w have access to ermous quantities of data. To make use of this data, the powerful methods in this book for working with quantitative information, particularly about volatility and risks, are essential. Strengths of this fully-revised edition include major additions to the R code and the advanced topics covered. Individual chapters cover, among other topics, multivariate distributions, copulas, Bayesian computations, risk management, and cointegration. Suggested prerequisites are basic kwledge of statistics and probability, matrices and linear algebra, and calculus. There is an appendix on probability, statistics and linear algebra. Practicing financial engineers will also find this book of interest.|
