i introduction
I. Introduction

Quantitative finance is a combination of economics, accounting, statistics, econometrics, mathematics, stochastic process, and computer science and technology. This handbook will be the most comprehensive handbook in quantitative finance, which integrates theory, methodology, and application. Because of the importance of quantitative finance in the finance industry, it has become one of the most popular subjects in business school. In addition, the finance industry has many job opportunities for people with good training in quantitative finance. Thus, a handbook should have a broad audience and be of interest to academics, educators, students, and practitioners.

Based upon our years of experience in teaching, research, textbook writing, and journal editing on the subject of quantitative finance, this handbook will review, discuss, and integrate theoretical, methodological and practical issues of quantitative finance. This handbook will be structured as follows:

i introduction1
I. Introduction

Part I. Introduction

Part II. Essays

Part III. Contributed Papers

Theories

Methodologies

Applications

Part IV. Appendix

Part V. References

Part VI. Index

Subject Index

Author Index

i introduction2
I. Introduction

Part II of this handbook will cover in detail the essential financial theories, financial policies, and empirical methodologies used in quantitative finance. Finance theories can be classified into (1) classical theory, (2) new classical theory, (3) CAPM and APT, and (4) theory of option and futures. Financial policies can be classified into (1) investment policy, (2) financing policy, (3) dividend policy, and (4) production policy. The empirical methodologies that will be covered in part II are statistics, econometrics, mathematics, operation research, stochastic process, and computer science, and technology. Therefore, part II of this handbook will be structured as follows:

i introduction3
I. Introduction
  • Theory
    • Classical theory
    • New classical theory
    • CAPM and APT
    • Theory of option and futures
  • Policy

    • Dividend policy
    • Production policy
  • Methodology
    • Statistics
    • Econometrics
    • Mathematics
    • Operation research
    • Stochastic process
    • Computer science and technology
i introduction4
I. Introduction

Most of part II will be written by Cheng Few Lee and Alice Lee. Some portion of part II will be written by other well-known scholars. Detailed derivation of theory and development of methodology will be presented in the appendix of this handbook. The Appendix of this handbook will give detailed derivation of different finance theory and model such as stock variation model M&M theory, portfolio theory, CAPM, APT, OPM, and future valuation model.

i introduction5
I. Introduction

Part III of this handbook includes contributed papers which will be written by well-know quantitative finance scholars and practitioners. The theoretical portion of these contributed papers will cover important finance theory, such as stock valuation theory, M&M theories, portfolio theories, CAPM, OPM, options, futures and other relevant theories in quantitative finance. The methodology portion of the contributed papers will cover methodologies of statistics, econometrics, mathematics, operation research, simulation and computer programming in quantitative finance research. The applications portion of the contributed papers will cover applications of options and futures theories in different financial instruments and products. Portfolio analysis and mutual fund evaluation will also be presented in this portion. In addition, market risk, credit risk and operation risk will be discussed in this portion in detail.

i introduction6
I. Introduction

This handbook will collect important references in quantitative finance. Finally, both subject and author index will be presented in this book.

Given sufficient contributed papers, there will be two volumes of this handbook. I would estimate the volume to be about a thousand pages per handbook.
