Introductory Stochastic Finance for Actuaries is an introductory level book on stochastic analysis for finance. It is specifically written for actuaries who would like to learn stochastic modeling techniques in a user-friendly and self-contained manner. The book introduces the basic theories of stochastic processes and stochastic calculus, and provides the necessary tool kits for modeling and pricing in finance and insurance. While rigorous concepts are presented when appropriate, the emphasis is on applications, intuition, and computation rather than on the theory.
