Richard J. Rendleman, Jr. is Professor of Finance at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is considered one of the premier researchers in the field of option pricing. He helped develop implied volatility and the binomial option pricing model, both of which are two of the most widely used tools for evaluating option prices today.


"Rendleman provides the very best combination of theoretical grounding, applications, and intuition for serious practitioners of modern financial technology. The knowledge in this text is essential for success in todaya s sophisticated financial environment and forthcoming product innovations. I strongly recommend Applied Derivatives for anyone who is interested in pursuing a career in financial risk management." Stanley J. Kon, Smith Breeden Associates, Inc. "Rendleman has written an excellent text. The concepts are clearly presented in a systematic way, often using novel approaches that are communicated without the need of advanced mathematics. The reader will come away, not only with a firm practical understanding of derivative markets, but also with a solid grounding in the theory which will be extremely helpful in keeping up with ongoing developments in this rapidly evolving field."
