Presenting the most advanced thinking on the topic, this book covers the latest valuation models and techniques. It addresses essential topics such as the subtleties of fixed-income mathematics, new approaches to modeling term structures, and the applications of fixed-income valuation on credit risk, mortgages, munis, and indexed bonds.
