Special Issue "Finance, Financial Risk Management and their Applications"
A special issue of International Journal of Financial Studies (ISSN 2227-7072).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2018)
Over the past four decades, academic researchers and market practitioners have developed and adopted different models and techniques for option pricing. Ground-breaking work on option pricing was done by Black and Scholes (1973) and Merton (1973). Since 1973, mathematical finance has become a new branch of standard finance theory. It has developed rapidly in the last twenty years, and is now a branch of probability theory and stochastic analysis. Mathematical finance problems give rise to the innovative application of a wide range of mathematical methods, not only from probability theory and stochastic analysis, but also methods such as partial differential equations, statistics, convex analysis, optimization, stochastic control and numerical analysis.
In mathematical finance, risk management is an important topic. This has led to some developments, such as hedging methodologies, pricing volatility derivatives, risk measures, portfolio theory, asset allocation, etc.
In this Special Issue, we would like to invite you to submit original research and review articles exploring finance, financial risk management and their applications. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
Pricing volatility derivatives
Asset pricing models
Interest rate modelling
Numerical methods for pricing derivatives
