This self-contained volume brings together a collection of chapters by some of the most distinguished researchers and practitioners in the fields of mathematical finance and financial engineering. Presenting state-of-the-art developments in theory and practice, the Festschrift is dedicated to Dilip B. Madan on the occasion of his 60th birthday. Specific topics covered include: * Theory and application of the Variance-Gamma process * Lévy process driven fixed-income and credit-risk models, including CDO pricing * Numerical PDE and Monte Carlo methods * Asset pricing and derivatives valuation and hedging * Itô formulas for fractional Brownian motion * Martingale characterization of asset price bubbles * Utility valuation for credit derivatives and portfolio management Advances in Mathematical Finance is a valuable resource for graduate students, researchers, and practitioners in mathematical finance and financial engineering.
