From the Back Cover:

There are a number of books on financial mathematics, which either discuss the methods or use HP financial calculators. Using HP calculators is slow and prone to error and the variables cannot be seen once entered. Since most financial managers have Excel on their desk, it is more efficient to solve the problems on spreadsheets and gain the benefits of layout and more comprehensive information.

 

Mastering Financial Mathematics in Microsoft Excel is a practical guide with exercises and solutions throughout. It provides a comprehensive set of tools and methods that will help you apply Excel to solve mathematical problems. Alistair Day clearly explains the basic calculations for mathematical finance backed up with simple templates for further use and development, together with examples. The new edition includes the addition of end of chapter exercises to help you develop your knowledge. The accompanying CD allows you to use and adapt templates and models.
