Mathematical Methods For Foreign Exchange: A Financial Engineer’s Approach

Foreign Exchange Market Professor Alexander Lipton’s book, Mathematical Methods For Foreign Exchange: A Financial Engineer’s Approach presents a systematic and practically oriented approach to mathematical modeling in finance, particularly in the foreign exchange context.

The book describes all the relevant aspects of financial engineering, including derivative pricing, in detail. 

Moreover, the book is self-contained.

With the necessary mathematical, economic, and trading background carefully explained. In addition to the lucid treatment of the standard material, it describes many original results.

Furthermore, students of financial engineering will find the book’s text very helpful. In addition, as a basic reference for risk managers, traders, and academics.


“It is a book from which much can be learned. Even by specialists in the derivatives field.” — Mathematical Reviews, 2003
