December 2013 | Open Source

Packt is pleased to announce the release of its new book Haskell Financial Data Modeling and Predictive Analytics , a hands-on guide that teaches readers how to use Haskell's tools and libraries to analyze data from real-world sources in an easy-to-understand manner. The eBook and Kindle versions are available for $20.39.

About the Author:
Pavel Ryzhov graduated from Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russia, in the field of mathematical physics, Toda equations and Lie algebras. For the past 10 years, he has worked as a Technical Lead and Senior Software Engineer. Pavel led a startup company that mainly provided mathematical and web software development in Haskell. In his spare time, he works on a port of Quantlib; an HQuantLib project.

Haskell is one of the most influential and functional programming languages available today. When used for financial analysis, an improved level of prediction and clear problem descriptions can be achieved.

Haskell Financial Data Modeling and Predictive Analytics is a hands-on guide that explains the basics of Haskell, the mathematics involved, and how this is implemented in Haskell. This book helps readers to build a FIX protocol parser, use Akaike criterion to choose the best-fit model, calibrate ACD models with the Kalman filter, and also understand parallel programming in Haskell. Readers will also learn more about volatility prediction.
