Prof. Eckhard Platen holds the Chair in Quantitative Finance at the University of Technology, Sydney. Author of books on numerical methods for stochastic differential equations and recent book on benchmark approach at Springer Verlag. Has written more than 140 papers in finance, insurance and applied mathematics and serves on the editorial boards of five international journals including Mathematical Finance and Quantitative Finance
From the reviews: "The book is accessible at a graduate student level, though some parts of the book are more advanced. It can also be used by readers with enough mathematical background as a reference book for methods and techniques on numerical approximations of SDEs. ... contains an extensive up-to-date bibliography, including bibliographic notes for each chapter, making it an excellent reference source on numerical solutions of SDEs with jumps. The book is very well written and can be used as a textbook for a graduate level course." (Igor Cialenco, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2012 b)
