Stochastic Volatility Modeling - Chapman & Hall/CRC Financial Mathematics Series (Hardback)Lorenzo Bergomi (author)
- We can order this
Packed with insights, Lorenzo Bergomi's Stochastic Volatility Modeling explains how stochastic volatility is used to address issues arising in the modeling of derivatives, including:
Which trading issues do we tackle with stochastic volatility? How do we design models and assess their relevance? How do we tell which models are usable and when does calibration make sense?
This manual covers the practicalities of modeling local volatility, stochastic volatility, local-stochastic volatility, and multi-asset stochastic volatility. In the course of this exploration, the author, Risk's 2009 Quant of the Year and a leading contributor to volatility modeling, draws on his experience as head quant in Societe Generale's equity derivatives division. Clear and straightforward, the book takes readers through various modeling challenges, all originating in actual trading/hedging issues, with a focus on the practical consequences of modeling choices.

"With this book, Bergomi has actually offered a precious gift to the whole quant community: his very rich and concrete experience on volatility modelling organized in 500 pages and 12 chapters full of insights; and to the academic community as well: new ideas, points of view, and questions that could well feed their research for years."
- Julien Guyon, Quantitative Finance
"[Stochastic Volatility Modeling] should be read by practitioners, as it is the only one providing a strong quantitative framework to the (Delta and Vega) hedging of Equity derivatives. It should also be read by academics who will benefit from practical insights. It should finally be read by (motivated) students, who will definitely find areas to dig deeper in, both theoretically and numerically [...] This book should be seen as a strong case for the need of a deeper understanding of derivatives' modelling (and their risks). Lorenzo Bergomi provides us here with new tools (variance curve models, metrics such as the At-The-Money Forward Skew and the Skew Stickiness Ratio) as well as new results on hedging and P&L computations of actual trading strategies, which have been so far too much overlooked in mathematical finance research. Welcome to the new era of Derivatives Modelling!"
