From the introduction: “The reason for this book is that, in academic and commercial research in financial economics, as well as in the growing fields of mathematical finance and computational finance, all current expositions start with philosophical assumptions, on the basis of which mathematical model philosophies are erected. Next, the real world data are then forced into these assumed abstract frameworks. This top-down process leads to model mis-specification, data inconsistencies, and model instability. Thus, it provides an unreliable foundation for informed financial decision-making. In contrast, this book follows the logic of the scientific method, which requires that we let the complete set of financial data speak for itself, without prejudice. Therefore, it critically re-examines most of the currently existing inexact and exact valuation models of financial instruments."
