He explains the concept that of arbitrage with examples, after which makes use of the arbitrage theorem, besides an approximation of geometric Brownian movement, to acquire an easy derivation of the Black-Scholes formulation. within the later chapters he offers genuine rate information indicating that this version isn't really continually acceptable and exhibits how the version should be generalized to house such occasions. No different textual content provides such themes in a mathematically exact yet available manner. it's going to entice specialist investors in addition to undergraduates learning the fundamentals of finance.
