Summary "Being unique in its overall organization the book covers not only the mathematical and statistical theory but also deals with the implementation of such methods. All algorithms introduced in the book are designed for practical use in simulation and have been coded and made available by the authors. Examples of possible applications of the presented algorithms (including option-pricing, VaR and Bayesian statistics) are presented at the end of the book."--BOOK JACKET.
