Dear all,

I am not sure if this is the right place to post this ad.

I am writing a package for financial derivatives, which I am distributing
to my students to experiment with.
Before I actually distribute it, I am looking for people that can give me
some feedback about the ease of the exposition and possible some tips of a
more technical nature. The students typically have no knowledge of
Mathematica type software whatsoever.

The package does the following:
* European style option pricing and greeks for the following models:
*** Black Scholes
*** Merton jump diffusion
*** Heston stochastic volatility
*** Bakshi Cao Chen jump diffusion stochastic volatility
*** Cox Ross Rubinstein binomial
* American style option pricing for the following:
*** Binomial
*** Barone-Adesi Whaley
* Graphical output for trees and exercise regions for the American puts
* Graphs of portfolio payoffs (eg. for spread analysis)
* Graphs of portfolio greeks (eg. for spreads, volatility trading etc.)

The following are in notebook form but will be included soon
* Extraction of tree parameters for the Ho Lee model for the short rate
given a yield curve
* American/European pricing using the Ho Lee tree version
* Simulations for mark-to-market procedures and futures payoffs
* Simulations for dynamic delta and delta-gamma hedging
* Simulations for VaR and stress testing

If anyone is interested in lending me a few minutes, you can contact me to
send you the package. If you are in London I can even offer you a pint for
your time :)
