Mathematical Models of Financial Markets

  • Claudio GalloEmail author


As in many fields of science, mathematics plays a major role also in finance. Spanning from macroeconomic analysis to portfolio management, from market trend evaluation/prediction to risk management, mathematics is the most powerful tool for making quantitative evaluations in finance. A huge amount of work has been done in this field, as testified by the amount of books, papers and PhD theses that can be found in the literature.
