Pricing derivatives theory comes alive in this self-contained interactive experience in financial pricing. The no-arbitrage perspective in a one-period state-preference model drives the book, and the Maple (R) and Matlab (R) programs help readers visualize payoffs and respond to various constraints and conditions. With clear explanations and lavish illustrations, Pricing Derivative Securities: An Interactive, Dynamic Environment with Maple V and Matlab teaches the core theoretical concepts so often disguised behind difficult terms and institutional details.
Readers can experiment with the electronic packages forever, using the book and its solutions manual as a tutorial that can help solve problems of increasing complexity.

Review quote

Darrell Duffie, Stanford University, Stanford, California
"This treatment of derivative pricing will make a fine textbook for a masters-level finance course, or a reference work for practitioners. Prisman's novel presentation combines software, algorithms, and analytical modeling, emphasizing visualization of the pricing. This book makes it possible to develop both a solid conceptual foundation for derivatives modeling as well as a working knowledge suitable for numerical implementation."

Peter Carr, Principal, Banc of America Securities, New York
"By using two of the software packages most widely used in industry, Professor Prisman's book should prove to be of great value to both students and practitioners."
