    It is the author's view that although the time is not yet ripe for developing a really general theory of automata and computation, it is now possible and desirable to move more explicitly in this direction. This can be done by studying in an extremely thorough way well-chosen particular situations that embody the basic concepts. This is the aim of the present book, which seeks general results. Introduction The book covers a wide range of topics, yet essential, in Computational Finance (CF), understood as a mix of Finance, Computational Statistics, and Mathematics of Finance. In that regard it is unique in its kind, for it touches upon the basic principles of all three main components of CF, with hands-on examples for programming.
