New Textbook! Taking an applied mathematics approach, An Introduction to Exotic Option Pricing illustrates how to use straightforward techniques to price a wide range of exotic options within the Black–Scholes framework. These methods can even be used as control variates in a Monte Carlo simulation of a stochastic volatility model.

Celebrate the life of Alan Turing with us by checking out this new book: The Universal Computer: The Road from Leibniz to Turing. Alan Turing Year 2012 marks the scientific contributions of this pioneer on the 100th anniversary of his birth on June 23, 1912. Turing’s influence on computer science, artificial intelligence, and developmental biology, along with his important work on code-breaking during the Second World War paved the way for a host of future discoveries and innovations.
