The original title of the book: Applied Diffusion Processes from Engineering to Finance (Applied Stochastic Methods)
The aim of this book is to promote interaction between engineering, finance and insurance, as these three domains have many models and methods of solution in common for solving real–:life problems. The authors point out the strict inter–:relations that exist among the diffusion models used in engineering, finance and insurance. In each of the three fields, the basic diffusion models are presented and their strong similarities are discussed. Analytical, numerical and Monte Carlo simulation methods are explained with a view to applying them to obtain the solutions to the different problems presented in the book. Advanced topics such as nonlinear problems, Lé:vy processes and semi–:Markov models in interactions with the diffusion models are discussed, as well as possible future interactions among engineering, finance and insurance.
