Understanding quants...

Or trying to... Good ol' college math and stats. Fun really. Adding complexity to a simple problem with no solution. Predicting the future. Supercool. The Truth. Philosopher's stone in all it's glory. Turning some cool math wizards to billionaires. And the economy to shambles. Excellent reading though. Simply stunning! Especially the three books at the bottom, and one not shown here, My life as a quant, by E. Derman, a physicist turned quant. I got that in hardcover where these shown here are the Kindle versions readable on, what else? The iPad! BTW, if you love this stuff, follow the "Seeking alpha" blog for some cool posts on all things quant!
