The mathematics of finance involves a wide spectrum of
techniques that go beyond traditional applied mathematics. The field
has witnessed a tremendous amount of progress in recent years, which
has inspired communication and networking among researchers in
finance, economics, engineering, and industry.
This volume contains papers based on talks given at the first AMS-IMS-SIAM
Joint Summer Research Conference on Mathematics of Finance held at Snowbird
(UT).

Topics covered here include modeling, estimation, optimization,
control, risk assessment and management, contingent claim pricing,
dynamic hedging, and financial derivative design. The book is suitable
for graduate students and research mathematicians interested in
mathematical finance.
