Summary

Within this course, particular problems of financial derivatives, their pricing, hedging, replication and modelling in general are treated. At first, particular sorts of derivatives, methods of pricing and most common types of underlying assets and related processes are introduced. Subsequently, these methods and types of underlying assets are applied in order to model the price of basic types of financial derivatives. Single topics are constituted by non- standard derivatives.The task is to allow the students to use obtained knowledge in solving of real problems.
