The attached are my notes based on my understanding on some topics. The flow of thought is from ASM manual by Dr. Abraham. Hope these help.

Should there be any conceptual mistake, please let me know.

It is a web version, and it fell behind recently due to my additional focus on the problems, but I'll make sure I have a draft ready in three weeks.

Default J.Mo's notes - reformatted

I left them in Word format so people can modify them to fit their needs, and fill in things they feel are missing. Due to my extensive use of the Word equation editor, I needed to split my formula reference into two files because of AO file size restrictions.

One note, while the McDonald text often uses C as a generic option descriptor in formulas, like the binomial tree formula for the value of at a node, I followed the convention of the manual that I used this sitting and use a V for option Value. That made sense to me, and avoids some potential confusion and "does this also apply for a put" questions, but is different than what the text and ASM use.

If you see anything else, let me know. I hope to not be taking MFE again, but like everyone else, I won't know for sure until January.

Hi!

Thanks to J.Mo for the awesome notes. For the last sitting, I used this as my formula/theory reference, but tried to make it little easier to read for myself. I found these notes to be very thorough, but of course did not cover the newly added topic of utilities. I was very familiar with game theory so few handwritten reminders on the side worked for me. This would help someone who would like a more eye friendly format of an otherwise perfect document.

**If you want the pdfs, just pm me and I'll send it to you. If there's a huge demand I'll repost as a separate response.
