International Journal of Theoretical and Applied Finance
Int J Theor Appl Finance
Published/Hosted by World Scientific Publishing Company.
This shift of the financial market towards advanced quantitative methods has led to the introduction of state-of-the-art scientific methods into the world of finance. The International Journal of Theoretical and Applied Finance (IJTAF) is being launched in response to these new developments. It aims to bring together international experts involved in the theoretical modelling of financial instruments as well as the application of these models to global financial markets. The development of complex financial instruments and financial infrastructure have led to new challenges to the regulatory bodies. Financial instruments which have been designed to serve the needs of the mature capitals market need to be adapted for application in the emerging markets. Issues addressed in IJTAF include: (a) creation of models based on financial insights and sophisticated mathematical principles, (b) calibration of these models based on market information, (c) simulation of such models using efficient computational algorithms, (d) updating of these models in line with market developments, and (e) adaptation of these models by the practitioners in the industry. The disciplines covered by the journal will include: Financial mathematics and financial engineering; decision theory; probability theory; optimization; statistical analysis; data analysis; modelling; computer algorithms and simulations; numerical methods; calibration and institutional implementation of models; regulatory aspects of the financial markets; emerging markets. There will also be special issues covering country/regional experiences.
