Advanced Quantitative Finance with C++
This book will introduce you to the key mathematical models used to price financial derivatives, as well as the implementation of main numerical models used to solve them. In particular, equity, currency, interest rates, and credit derivatives are discussed. In the first part of the book, the main mathematical models used in the world of financial derivatives are discussed. Next, the numerical methods used to solve the mathematical models are presented. Finally, both the mathematical models and the numerical methods are used to solve some concrete problems in equity, forex, interest rate, and credit derivatives.

The models used include the Black-Scholes and Garman-Kohlhagen models, the LIBOR market model, structural and intensity credit models. The numerical methods described are Monte Carlo simulation (for single and multiple assets), Binomial Trees, and Finite Difference Methods. You will find implementation of concrete problems including European Call, Equity Basket, Currency European Call, FX Barrier Option, Interest Rate Swap, Bankruptcy, and Credit Default Swap in C++. more »
Beginning C for Arduino, 2nd Edition
Beginning C for Arduino, 2nd Edition is written for those who have no prior experience with microcontrollers or programming but would like to experiment and learn both. Updated with new projects and new boards, this book introduces you to the C programming language, reinforcing each programming structure with a simple demonstration of how you can use C to control the Arduino family of microcontrollers. Author Jack Purdum uses an engaging style to teach good programming techniques using examples that have been honed during his 25 years of university teaching.

During the course of the book, you will learn the basics of programming, such as working with data types, making decisions, and writing control loops. You'll then progress onto some of the trickier aspects of C programming, such as using pointers effectively, working with the C preprocessor, and tackling file I/O. Each chapter ends with a series of exercises and review questions to test your knowledge and reinforce what you have learned. more »
