Discrete Stochastic Calculus

  • Ernst Eberlein
  • Jan Kallsen
Part of the Springer Finance book series (FINANCE)


The theory of stochastic processes deals with random functions of time such as asset prices, interest rates, and trading strategies. As is also the case for Mathematical Finance, it can be developed in both discrete and continuous time.
