Fixed Income Mathematics is known around the world as the leading guide to understanding the concepts, valuation models for bonds with embedded option, mortgage-backed securities, asset-backed securities, and other fixed income instruments, and portfolio analytics.
Fixed Income Mathematics begins with basic concepts of the mathematics of finance, then systematically builds on them to reveal state-of-the-art methodologies for evaluating them and managing fixed-income portfolios. Concepts are illustrated with numerical examples and graphs, and you need only a basic knowledge of elementary algebra to understand them.

The concepts and methodologies for managing fixed income portfolios has improved dramatically over the past 15 years.
