About the Book
This is the 2nd episode of the Summaries in Quantitative Finance series. It serves as a practical guide on convexity adjustment in interest rate derivative pricing. The aimed readers are pricing quants. The goal here is that after reading the book, readers should be able to implement convexity adjustment by themselves in a derivative pricing library (hence the subtitle, "A Practical Guide").
