Mathematical Models in Portfolio Analysis
by Farida Kachapova
Publisher: Bookboon 2013
Number of pages: 110
This book explains portfolio modelling in financial mathematics as a consistent mathematical theory with all steps justified. The topics include mean-variance portfolio analysis and capital market theory. The book contains many examples with solutions. Linear algebra rather than calculus is used as foundation for portfolio analysis; this approach is more conceptual and helps to avoid tedious calculations.
