Advanced Applications in Finance: An Overview of Problems and Solution Techniques

Part of the Advances in Computational Economics book series (AICE, volume 9)


In the last two decades, we have witnessed spectacular innovations in Finance. These innovations may have been rooted in the process of economic growth; from the uncertainty and volatility associated with foreign exchange rates, interest rates and other asset prices; or even from the desire to get around government-imposed regulation (Miller, 1992).
