Abstract

There is often an unfortunate strain of pedantry running through the teaching of quantitative finance, one involving an excess of abstraction, formality, rigor and axiomatization that makes the subject unnecessarily daunting and difficult. This article contains a short guide to quantitative finance with a human face.

Keywords: quantitative finance, options, pricing, hedging, education
