This book provides a comprehensive treatment of the important aspects of investment theory, security analysis, and portfolio
selection, with a quantitative emphasis not to be found in most other investment texts.The statistical analysis framework
of markets and institutions in the book meets the need for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in quantitative disciplines,
who wish to apply their craft to the world of investments. In addition, entrepreneurs will find the volume to be especially
useful. It also contains a clearly detailed explanation of many recent developments in portfolio and capital market theory
as well as a thorough procedural discussion of security analysis. Professionals preparing for the CPA, CFA, and or CFP examinations
will also benefit from a close scrutiny of the many problems following each chapter.The level of difficulty progresses through
the textbook with more advanced treatment appearing in the latter sections of each chapter, and the last chapters of the volume.
