The ART of Risk Management

Original Synopsis

"The ART of Risk Management has a total of 592 pages which are papers from writer 'Christopher L. Culp'. Learn about today's hottest new risk management tools One of the hottest areas of finance today, alternative risk transfer, or ART, refers to the use of various insurance products to manage market, credit, operational, legal, environmental, and other forms of risk. As the capital and insurance markets continue to converge, the number and complexity of new risk-defraying insurance products available to corporations, brokerages, money managers and other financial professionals will continue to grow. Expert Christopher L. Culp uses case studies of recent ART transactions used by risk managers to put the field into perspective for financial professionals and to acquaint them with the various types of risk control products now available. In addition he explores, in-depth, the links between ART, derivatives and bank-arranged risk financing, and he explains the key differences between classic insurance products and financial guarantees, risk financing, bundled layering, and other ART forms. 2002-07-11 time of publication of the book, [-John Wiley & Sons-]"

The Art of Computer Programming, Volume 4A

Original Synopsis

"The Art of Computer Programming, Volume 4A has a total of 912 pages which are papers from writer 'Donald E. Knuth'. The Art of Computer Programming, Volume 4A: Combinatorial Algorithms, Part 1 Knuth’s multivolume analysis of algorithms is widely recognized as the definitive description of classical computer science. The first three volumes of this work have long comprised a unique and invaluable resource in programming theory and practice. Scientists have marveled at the beauty and elegance of Knuth’s analysis, while practicing programmers have successfully applied his “cookbook” solutions to their day-to-day problems. The level of these first three volumes has remained so high, and they have displayed so wide and deep a familiarity with the art of computer programming, that a sufficient “review” of future volumes could almost be: “Knuth, Volume n has been published.” —Data Processing Digest Knuth, Volume n has been published, where n = 4A. In this long-awaited new volume, the old master turns his attention to some of his favorite topics in broadword computation and combinatorial generation (exhaustively listing fundamental combinatorial objects, such as permutations, partitions, and trees), as well as his more recent interests, such as binary decision diagrams. The hallmark qualities that distinguish his previous volumes are manifest here anew: detailed coverage of the basics, illustrated with well-chosen examples; occasional forays into more esoteric topics and problems at the frontiers of research; impeccable writing peppered with occasional bits of humor; extensive collections of exercises, all with solutions or helpful hints; a careful attention to history; implementations of many of the algorithms in his classic step-by-step form. There is an amazing amount of information on each page. Knuth has obviously thought long and hard about which topics and results are most central and important, and then, what are the most intuitive and succinct ways of presenting that material. Since the areas that he covers in this volume have exploded since he first envisioned writing about them, it is wonderful how he has managed to provide such thorough treatment in so few pages. —Frank Ruskey, Department of Computer Science, University of Victoria The book is Volume 4A, because Volume 4 has itself become a multivolume undertaking. Combinatorial searching is a rich and important topic, and Knuth has too much to say about it that is new, interesting, and useful to fit into a single volume, or two, or maybe even three. This book alone includes approximately 1500 exercises, with answers for self-study, plus hundreds of useful facts that cannot be found in any other publication. Volume 4A surely belongs beside the first three volumes of this classic work in every serious programmer’s library. Finally, after a wait of more than thirty-five years, the first part of Volume 4 is at last ready for publication. Check out the boxed set that brings together Volumes 1 - 4A in one elegant case, and offers the purchaser a $50 discount off the price of buying the four volumes individually.

The New Lombard Street

Original Synopsis

"The New Lombard Street has a total of 192 pages which are papers from writer 'Perry Mehrling'. Walter Bagehot's Lombard Street, published in 1873 in the wake of a devastating London bank collapse, explained in clear and straightforward terms why central banks must serve as the lender of last resort to ensure liquidity in a faltering credit system. Bagehot's book set down the principles that helped define the role of modern central banks, particularly in times of crisis--but the recent global financial meltdown has posed unforeseen challenges. The New Lombard Street lays out the innovative principles needed to address the instability of today's markets and to rebuild our financial system. Revealing how we arrived at the current crisis, Perry Mehrling traces the evolution of ideas and institutions in the American banking system since the establishment of the Federal Reserve in 1913. He explains how the Fed took classic central banking wisdom from Britain and Europe and adapted it to America's unique and considerably more volatile financial conditions. Mehrling demonstrates how the Fed increasingly found itself serving as the dealer of last resort to ensure the liquidity of securities markets--most dramatically amid the recent financial crisis. Now, as fallout from the crisis forces the Fed to adapt in unprecedented ways, new principles are needed to guide it. In The New Lombard Street, Mehrling persuasively argues for a return to the classic central bankers' "money view," which looks to the money market to assess risk and restore faith in our financial system. 2010-11-08 time of publication of the book, [-Princeton University Press-]"

Introduction to the Art of Programming Using Scala

Original Synopsis

"Introduction to the Art of Programming Using Scala has a total of 936 pages which are papers from writer 'Mark C. Lewis'. With its flexibility for programming both small and large projects, Scala is an ideal language for teaching beginning programming. Yet there are no textbooks on Scala currently available for the CS1/CS2 levels. Introduction to the Art of Programming Using Scala presents many concepts from CS1 and CS2 using a modern, JVM-based language that works well for both programming in the small and programming in the large. The book progresses from true programming in the small to more significant projects later, leveraging the full benefits of object orientation. It first focuses on fundamental problem solving and programming in the small using the REPL and scripting environments. It covers basic logic and problem decomposition and explains how to use GUIs and graphics in programs. The text then illustrates the benefits of object-oriented design and presents a large collection of basic data structures showing different implementations of key ADTs along with more atypical data structures. It also introduces multithreading and networking to provide further motivating examples. By using Scala as the language for both CS1 and CS2 topics, this textbook gives students an easy entry into programming small projects as well as a firm foundation for taking on larger-scale projects. Many student and instructor resources are available at 2012-11-05 time of publication of the book, [-CRC Press-]"

The Art of Programming

Original Synopsis

"The Art of Programming has a total of 591 pages which are papers from writer 'Steven C. Lawlor'. Steven Lawlor's readable explanations and accessible approach carefully guide students through the programming process with an emphasis on sound design principles. His friendly, open writing style, and use of rich, informative pedagogical features make it easy for students to read and understand. Lawlor uses a superior in-text learning system of chapter previews, memory diagrams, object summaries, execution charts, marginal notes, and boxes that demonstrate and teach C++ features. The book's flexible, modular design enables instructors to use it in a variety of situations. Lawlor introduces "objects" early (in Chapter 2), grouping together behaviors and properties in a special Object Charts section; however, students are not obliged to use classes until later, in Chapter 7. Lawlor also takes advantage of the new standard C++ string class to simplify handling character data. 1998 time of publication of the book, [-Course Technology Ptr-]"

The Art of Tendering

Original Synopsis

"The Art of Tendering has a total of 171 pages which are papers from writer 'P. D. V. Marsh'. Peter Marsh's book is the ideal reference and companion for all concerned with tendering and, more importantly, with tendering to win! Containing a stimulating and comprehensive mix of information and advice, the book provides rewarding reading for both the new entrant to the tendering scene and for those with more substantial expertise.Successful tendering, of course, goes well beyond the basics of cost estimation and mark-up. The author points out, for example, the importance of establishing an intelligence system to provide marketing, political, financial and legal data on which to base a bidding decision, and goes on to suggest how to implement and operate such a system.If price is important when bidding, so too are influence and financing. The author suggests practical ways of promoting influence and, in a realistic approach to the financial aspects of bidding, includes an easily understandable review of current methods of financing a project.Above every other consideration, a tender must sell - it must be both appealing and acceptable to the decision makers. These criteria are taken into account when suggesting how to write a tender as a 'winning document'. While the book properly gives priority to achieving a high rate of success for bids submitted, the question of submitting tenders with a high risk of failure is also discussed. Finally, there is a look at what the bidder needs to do following the submission of a tender and in preparation for negotiations. 1987-01-01 time of publication of the book, [-Gower Technical-]"

The Art of Stillness

Original Synopsis

"The Art of Stillness has a total of 214 pages which are papers from writer 'Paul Allain'. For over forty years, Tadashi Suzuki has been a unique and vital force in both Japanese and Western theater, creating and directing many internationally acclaimed productions including his famous production of The Trojan Women, which subsequently toured around the world. An intergral part of his work has been the development and teaching of his rigorous and controversial training system, the Suzuki method, whose principles have also been highly influential in contemporary theater. Paul Allain, an experienced practitioner of the Suzuki method, re-evaluates Suzuki's work, giving a lucid overview of his development towards an international theater aesthetic. He examines Suzuki's collaborators, the importance of architecture and environment in his theater and his impact on performance all over the world.
