I have all my written notes (prepared from Kellison's The Theory of Interest, now outdated) scanned into neat little PDF(s). I want to post them, but i was curious if i am violating any copyright laws since the notes follow the text quite closely and i have reproduced about half of his example problems in my notes. Any suggestions?
P.S. If i recall correctly, reprocessing/reproducing about a fifth of a copyright text without the intention of financial profit is permitted. But is its distribution then illegal? Heck, is posting the notes here a form of distribution?

This seems to be a great place for a short little helpful tidbit:
For Duration or Increasing annuities..., sometimes is a lot easier to calculate (with a calculator for instance) than Note: the approximation is probably a faster way of calculating duration of a bond. Just punch in the initial values into the calculator (PMT, FV, I, N) and solve for PV with I, I+1, I1 and then apply the above equation: eg. 30 year 80coupon bond @ 6% yield: (exact = 13.89) If you have to solve for n or i this probably wont be useful... And if you're interested:my notes from Mathematics of Investment and Credit
