Summary note:
"Why was Pascal credited with the origination of the arithmetical triangle in 1654, though impressive work on combinatoric problems had been published more than five centuries before? What were the pioneering assumptions unveiled in Ross's classic 1976 paper The Arbitrage Theory of Capital Asset Pricing - and what questions were left open for later researchers to resolve?" "A History of the Theory of Investments addresses these issues and hundreds more in a first-of-its-kind reference. Exploring key turning points in the development of investment theory, through the critical prism of investment theory and asset pricing expert Mark Rubinstein, this resource follows the chronological development of investment theory over centuries, exploring the inner workings of great theoretical breakthroughs while pointing out contributions made by often unsung contributors to some of investment's most influential ideas and models."--BOOK JACKET.
