The first edition of Derivatives is spent with a lot of effort throughout the book explaining what lies behind the formal mathematics of pricing and hedging. Questions ranging from 'how are forward prices determined?' to 'why does the Black-Scholes formula have the form it does?' are answered throughout the text. The authors of this first edition use verbal and pictorial expositions, and sometimes simple mathematical models, to explain the underlying principles before proceeding to a formal analysis. Extensive uses of numerical examples for illustrative purposes are used throughout to supplement the intuitive and formal presentations.The main body of this book is divided into six parts. Parts 1-3 cover, respectively, futures and forwards; options; and swaps. Part 4 examines term-structure modeling and the pricing of interest-rate derivatives, while Part 5 is concerned with credit derivatives and the modeling of credit risk. Part 6 discusses computational issues.
