R3,939 Discovery Miles 39 390 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Finance and energy markets have been an active scientific field for some time, even though the development and applications of sophisticated quantitative methods in these areas are relatively new-and referred to in a broader context as energy finance. Energy finance is often viewed as a branch of mathematical finance, yet this area continues to provide a rich source of issues that are fuelling new and exciting research developments. Based on a special thematic year at the Wolfgang Pauli Institute (WPI) in Vienna, Austria, this edited collection features cutting-edge research from leading scientists in the fields of energy and commodity finance. Topics discussed include modeling and analysis of energy and commodity markets, derivatives hedging and pricing, and optimal investment strategies and modeling of emerging markets, such as power and emissions. The book also confronts the challenges one faces in energy markets from a quantitative point of view, as well as the recent advances in solving these problems using advanced mathematical, statistical and numerical methods. By addressing the emerging area of quantitative energy finance, this volume will serve as a valuable resource for graduate-level students and researchers studying financial mathematics, risk management, or energy finance.

Religion and Spirituality in the Life Cycle (Paperback): James Gollnick Religion and Spirituality in the Life Cycle (Paperback)
James Gollnick; Edited by Peter Laurence, Victor H. Kazanjian
R679 Discovery Miles 6 790 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

In recent years, profound changes have affected the way people view the role of religion and spirituality in the life cycle. For many people, spirituality, always considered an essential part of religion, has become an interest no longer tied to organized religion. This book addresses the evolving relationship of spirituality to religion in our time, and the consequences of this change for understanding personality development. It also applies the concept of implicit religion to show how the least easily observed aspects of religion are at work in the growth of personality.

Quantitative Modeling of Derivative Securities - From Theory To Practice (Hardcover): Marco Avellaneda, Peter Laurence Quantitative Modeling of Derivative Securities - From Theory To Practice (Hardcover)
Marco Avellaneda, Peter Laurence
R3,122 Discovery Miles 31 220 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Quantitative Modeling of Derivative Securities demonstrates how to take the basic ideas of arbitrage theory and apply them - in a very concrete way - to the design and analysis of financial products. Based primarily (but not exclusively) on the analysis of derivatives, the book emphasizes relative-value and hedging ideas applied to different financial instruments. Using a "financial engineering approach," the theory is developed progressively, focusing on specific aspects of pricing and hedging and with problems that the technical analyst or trader has to consider in practice.

More than just an introductory text, the reader who has mastered the contents of this one book will have breached the gap separating the novice from the technical and research literature.

Victor H. Kazanjian, Peter Laurence; Edited by Victor H. Kazanjian, Peter Laurence
R587 Discovery Miles 5 870 Out of stock

Reflecting a national movement that seeks to create a more holistic model of learning and teaching on college and university campuses, Education as Transformation is a collection of twenty-eight essays written by a wide range of educators--including presidents, chancellors, deans, faculty members, administrators, religious life professionals, students, and other leaders in the field of education--on the themes of religious pluralism and spirituality in higher education. These essays provide scholarly analysis, practical information, and inspiration for those who agree that higher education can combine both head and heart in the teaching and learning process and in campus and community life. In seeking to articulate a new vision for higher education in America, the authors explore the possibility that both scholarship and spirituality are essential to fostering global learning communities and responsible global citizens who can address the challenges of a diverse world. With the increased dominance of specialized knowledge and technical process, all in higher education--students, faculty, and administrators alike--are searching for new sources of meaning and coherence in their lives. 'Education as Transformation' is a landmark response to this pressing need. The authors in this volume are the key leaders of what has become a major movement aimed at cultivating substantive engagement and a vigorous dialogue on these critical issues. This book should be read widely throughout higher education. (R. Eugene Rice, Scholar in Residence and Director of the Forum on Faculty Roles and Rewards of the American Association for Higher Education) This valuable collection draws fresh anduseful insights on the current state of American university culture from the worlds of religion and spirituality. The voices encountered here, both new and established, will surprise the academy with their humanity and utility. The reflections about campus community building and the promise and challenge of values, spirituality, and religious diversity, are new, useful, and long overdue. (E. Gordon Gee, Chancellor of Vanderbilt University) Education at its best is always about transformation. The contributors to this book come from diverse traditions, but they share at least one deep conviction: when we reduce education to the mere transmission of data and techniques, we rip the heart out of the enterprise. This book, and the wisdom traditions that inform it, offer both encouragement and guidance as we educators pursue our life-giving vocation. (Parker J. Palmer, Author of 'The Courage to Teach: Exploring the Inner Landscape of a Teacher's Life') The higher I went in my formal education, the more my intellectual work was valued and my spirit devalued. After completing a doctoral degree, I felt a great need to resurrect my soul. The Education as Transformation Project seeks to turn around this alienating process and in compiling this resource, the project seeks ways toward an education that is integrative and unitive. (Patricia M. Mische, Co-Founder and President Emerita of Global Education Associates; Lloyd Professor of Peace Studies and World Law at Antioch College) One of the happiest conjunctions of my life was my service on the Board of Trustees of Wellesley College at the time Victor H. Kazanjian, Jr. became our first Dean of Religious and Spiritual Life.The vitally new concept of campus ministry that he brought to Wellesley is now shared with an increasingly appreciative audience across the country and beyond. This collection puts the vision of a new relationship between higher education and the religious dimension at the forefront of our public discourse where it belongs. (The Reverend Peter J. Gomes, Plummer Professor of Christian Morals and Pusey Minister in the Memorial Church, Harvard University; Author of 'The Good Book: Reading the Bible with Mind and Heart')

The Routledge Guidebook to Jane Jacobs' The Death and Life of Great American Cities (Paperback): Peter Laurence The Routledge Guidebook to Jane Jacobs' The Death and Life of Great American Cities (Paperback)
Peter Laurence
R538 Discovery Miles 5 380 Out of stock

Jane Jacobs' The Death and Life of Great American Cities was published in 1961 and is now generally considered one of the most important books ever written on cities and city life. At a time when suburbia appeared to be human destiny, and architectural and urban theorists questioned whether the city should survive, Jacobs taught people to see, understand, and love cities again. The book continues to be widely studied and discussed but is seldom read and understood in its entirety - this guidebook will help readers both pull the text apart and tie it up together. This guidebook includes: a chapter by chapter exploration of the key arguments and ideas in the text a brief biography of Jane Jacobs examining her influences and the context in which The Death and Life was produced an outline of the book's critical reception over the past fifty years and its contemporary relevance a comprehensive bibliography of both Jacobs' writing and works written about her.
