The focus of the book is the construction of optimal investment strategies in a security market model where the prices follow diffusion processes. It begins by presenting the complete Black-Scholes type model and then moves on to incomplete models and models including constraints and transaction costs. The models and methods presented will include the stochastic control method of Merton, the martingale method of Cox-Huang and Karatzas et al., the log optimal method of Cover and Jamshidian, the value-preserving model of Hellwig etc. Stress is laid on rigorous mathematical presentation and clear economic interpretations while technicalities are kept to the minimum. The underlying mathematical concepts will be provided. No a priori knowledge of stochastic calculus, stochastic control or partial differential equations is necessary (however some knowledge in stochastics and calculus is needed). Contents:Introduction and Discrete-Time ModelsThe Continuous-Time Market ModelThe Continuous-Time Portfolio ProblemConstrained Continuous-Time ProblemsPortfolio Optimisation in the Presence of Transaction CostsNon-Utility Based Portfolio Selection ModelsAppendix Readership: Professionals in the financial industry, economists, mathematicians, physicians and students in stochastic processes. keywords: “This book provides not only a survey of the continuous-time porfolio selection theory, but also can be recommended to those who want to obtain a quick overview about methods of portfolio theory. Because of its friendly and inviting style, parts of this book are also suitable as a first introduction to this theory for those not familiar with stochastic analysis.” Metrika

First published in 1978, The Structure and Reform of Direct Taxation presents the full findings and recommendations of the ‘Meade’ committee set up by The Institute for Fiscal Studies. It represents the most important contemporary examination of the structure of UK taxation and direct taxation systems in general. The results of two years’ intensive research and discussion by this independent committee are presented as a report under the joint authorship of an outstanding team of tax experts. The committee brought together professional practitioners-lawyers, accountants and taxation administrators-and academic specialists in fiscal studies, and here provides a unique review of direct taxation which is comprehensive, singularly original and full of good sense. The book begins with a return to first principles, restates the objectives of a good tax system and analyses existing structures. It goes on to examine the feasibility of basic reforms which would allow the system to become more straightforward in operation and which would base taxation on what individuals take out of the economy rather than on what they put into it.
