Derivatives Algorithms — Volume 1: Bones (Second Edition) is for practicing quants who already have some expertise in risk-neutral pricing and in programming, and want to build a reusable and extensible library. Rather than specific models, this volume provides foundations common to all pricing, such as C++ code structure, interfaces, and several widely used mathematical methods. It also presents a set of protocols, by which models and trades can collaborate to support pricing and hedging tasks, and illustrates their use with several example trade types and models. Readers will learn to deploy the results of their research work with productivity-enhancing methods that are not taught elsewhere, including object serialization, code generation, and separation of concerns for continuous improvement. Of all the books on derivatives pricing, only Derivatives Algorithms shows the internals of a high-quality working library.The new Second Edition is more accessible to readers who are not already familiar with the book's concepts; there is an increased focus on explaining the motivation for each step, and on providing a high-level perspective on design choices. The chapters on Persistence and Protocols have been substantially rewritten, providing motivating examples and additional detail in the code. The treatment of yield curves and funding has been modernized, with the increased sophistication required by today's markets. And a new final chapter, describing the next phase in the evolution of derivatives valuation and risk, has been added.

For years, developers have wished for a programming language with the power and flexibility of C++ that's also easy to write, read, and maintain like Microsoft "RM" Visual Basic "RM". Visual C# "TM", the hot new Web-enabled programming language from Microsoft, satisfies those wishes. Its object-oriented, programmer-friendly capabilities make it vastly easier to learn and use than older languages such as C++ -- especially for developing Web application. "Inside C#" provides the ideal in-depth look at the architecture and programming elements of Microsoft Visual C#. While other books may concentrate on C# development and runtime environments, this book is devoted to the language itself. It will have an exceptionally long shelf life, since the core C# language will change very little over time, while environments such as Microsoft Visual Studio "RM" may change yearly. This book is perfect for any Visual Basic developer who wants to move up to the next-generation language, and for any Visual C++ developer who wants an eaisier language to use for developing Web-enabled applications for the Internet. It includes tips throughout that highlight differences between Visual Basic, C++, and C# to help select the best language for the job, plus C# sample code both in the text and on an accompanying CD.

Picking up where other negotiation books leave off, this practical, incisive handbook shows executives, lawyers, and government officials how to survive and thrive in today's highly competitive international marketplace. Jeswald W. Salacuse, a professor of international law at Tufts University and a member of Harvard's Program on Negotiation, draws on his business experience in more than thirty countries to provide business people with the techniques and strategies they need to successfully close an international agreement. Making Global Deals explains how to overcome the obstacles -- the instability of the international market place and differences in culture, ideology, law, politics, and currencies -- and come out on top in any size venture. Emphasizing careful preparation, he provides checklists and ground rules for strengthening and maintaining a solid bargaining position and shows step-by-step how to achieve a "win-win" solution.

Few people today can write with the same authority on the English language as Bryan A. Garner. In this comprehensive work, he expands his popular and much-consulted chapter from the Chicago Manual of Style to cover not only grammar and usage but also syntax, word formation, and punctuation. The book offers advice and explanations for what constitutes standard literary Englishthe forms that mark writers and speakers as educated users of the languagealong with some historical context for understanding the development of these forms. Special features include a discussion of how the canonical parts of speech came to be identified, coverage of both traditional sentence diagramming and contemporary transformational grammar, and several dozen Google Ngrams illustrating how the usage of specific terms has evolved over the centuries of printed English books. The book concludes with an exhaustive glossary of grammatical terms and a bibliography of suggested readings. It is a magisterial work, the culmination of Garner s several decades of study of the English language."
