This is a nice book that blends modern statistical techniques with practical R code that makes it easy to explore, understand, and model financial data. Readers unfamiliar with this book can see what others have said here.
To learn this material as well as possible I worked through the book's problems and exercises and wrote up my
solutions and put them in book form. The R scripts used in the solutions for the various chapters are
given below. The solution manual has detailed explanations of the R codes below and further explanations
of the questions asked in the end of chapter exercises. Note that in this solution manual I've worked
all of the problems in the most recent (2nd Edition) version of the textbook.
Originally my solutions were written in PDF (using the mathematical typesetting language LaTeX). I converted the PDF format to a format I thought more people would find more convenient. You can preview and buy a kindle version of the solution manual here. If you are interested in purchasing the PDF version please contact me below.
