This third edition again delivers a clear path for students and professionals to learn and apply object-oriented analysis and design. The first two editions of this book have achieved gross sales of more than 60,000 units through the domestic retail channel Timely and up-to-date; compliant with UML 2.0 and the latest trends in design patterns and object-oriented analysis and design More gold from one of the leading names in software engineering: Craig Larman! The mastery of object-oriented analysis and design (OOA/D) principles and concepts is critical for anyone seeking to create robust and maintainable object systems. This third edition presents a well-defined roadmap, so the reader can move along a step-by-step process from requirements gathering all the way to code generation. The author teaches the skill of OOA/D using the latest version of the industry standard modeling language (UML 2.0). He also allows the reader to learn and apply the popular concept of design patterns, and therefore helps readers accelerate their mastery of analysis and design. The author retains his thorough treatment of a single case study to help readers gain a big picture of successful software development. Once again, this book delivers, and furthers Craig Larman´s name among software engineering luminaries. Product Description ´´This edition contains Larman´s usual accurate and thoughtful writing. It is a very good book made even better.´´ -Alistair Cockburn, author, Writing Effective Use Cases and Surviving OO Projects ´´Too few people have a knack for explaining things. Fewer still have a handle on software analysis and design. Craig Larman has both.´´ -John Vlissides, author, Design Patterns and Pattern Hatching ´´People often ask me which is the best book to introduce them to the world of OO design. Ever since I came across it Applying UML and Patterns has been my unreserved choice.´´ -Martin Fowler, author, UML Distilled and Refactoring ´´This book makes learning UML enjoyable and pragmatic by incrementally introducing it as an intuitive language for specifying the artifacts of object analysis and design. It is a well written introduction to UML and object methods by an expert practitioner.´´ -Cris Kobryn, Chair of the UML Revision Task Force and UML 2.0 Working Group A brand new edition of the world´s most admired introduction to object-oriented analysis and design with UML Fully updated for UML 2 and the latest iterative/agile practices Includes an all-new case study illustrating many of the book´s key points Applying UML and Patterns is the world´s #1 business and college introduction to ´´thinking in objects´´-and using that insight in real-world object-oriented analysis and design. Building on two widely acclaimed previous editions, Craig Larman has updated this book to fully reflect the new UML 2 standard, to help you master the art of object design, and to promote high-impact, iterative, and skillful agile modeling practices. Developers and students will learn object-oriented analysis and design (OOA/D) through three iterations of two cohesive, start-to-finish case studies. These case studies incrementally introduce key skills, essential OO principles and patterns, UML notation, and best practices. You won´t just learn UML diagrams-you´ll learn how to apply UML in the context of OO software development. Drawing on his unsurpassed experience as a mentor and consultant, Larman helps you understand evolutionary requirements and use cases, domain object modeling, responsibility-driven design, essential OO design, layered architectures, ´´Gang of Four´´ design patterns, GRASP, iterative methods, an agile approach to the Unified Process (UP), and much more. This edition´s extensive improvements include A stronger focus on helping you master OOA/D through case studies that demonstrate key OO principles and patterns, while also applying the UML New coverage of UML 2, Agile Modeling, Test-Driven Development, and refactoring Many new tips on combining iterative and evolutionary development with OOA/D Updates for easier study, including new learning aids and graphics New college educator teaching resources Guidance on applying the UP in a light, agile spirit, complementary with other iterative methods such as XP and Scrum Techniques for applying the UML to documenting architectures A new chapter on evolutionary requirements, and much more Applying UML and Patterns, Third Edition, is a lucid and practical introduction to thinking and
´´Using a single elementary model Tirole brings out with refreshing ease an unsuspected unity and simplicity in a field that might otherwise be perceived as dishearteningly fragmented and complex. This masterful book will be a formidable teaching tool at the graduate level and an essential reference for research in corporate finance.´´--Marco Pagano, Professor of Economics, University of Naples Federico II ´´The field of corporate finance has developed rapidly and extensively in the last twenty years, but those who want to teach it face a barrier: the absence of a widely accepted textbook. Jean Tirole´s book fills that gap. Applying his celebrated analytical and expositional skills, Tirole synthesizes and unifies the field in a clear and accessible manner, emphasizing particularly the connections between corporate finance and contract theory and the role of incentives and control in firms´ financial decisions. The result is a book that will be an important resource for students and teachers alike.´´--Oliver Hart, Andrew E. Furer Professor of Economics, Harvard University ´´With this book, Tirole has provided a comprehensive treatment of modern corporate finance theory in one place with one integrated framework. As a bonus, he also describes many of the important empirical results in corporate finance and how they relate to the theories. The book will be a valuable asset to students (and professors) of corporate finance.´´--Steve Kaplan, Neubauer Family Professor of Entrepreneurship and Finance, University of Chicago Graduate School of Business ´´This is a remarkable book. Theoretical work in corporate finance over the past thirty or so years has yielded a bewildering array ofindividual models, yet Tirole manages to give a beautifully clear and unified treatment of the field. There is a real coherence both within and across the chapters, and one is in many places able to see the close connection between topics that are ordinarily treated as being distinct.
Mandelbrot is world famous for his creation of the new mathematics of fractal geometry. Yet few people know that his original field of applied research was in econometrics and financial models, applying ideas of scaling and self-similarity to arrays of data generated by financial analyses. This book brings together his original papers as well as many original chapters specifically written for this book.

Das bewährte Lehrbuch verbindet die klassischen Fragen der Investition und Finanzierung von Unternehmen mit der Betrachtung von Finanzmärkten und bietet somit eine moderne Sicht der Unternehmensfinanzierung. Es werden Themen behandelt und Methoden entwickelt, die in der Finance heute zum Standard gehören. Dabei werden ebenso kleinere Unternehmen, Neugründungen sowie Ventures in den Blick genommen. In der vorliegenden Neuauflage wurden die Inhalte aktualisiert und gestrafft. Das Buch setzt sich jetzt aus Modulen zusammen, die unabhängig voneinander gelesen werden können. Dies ermöglicht es, gezielt einzelne Themenbereiche auszuwählen.
Dieses Buch deckt die Konzepte der Finanzmarkttheorie ab, die für die Kapitalanlage relevant sind. Dabei werden die finanzmarkttheoretischen Konzepte verständlich erklärt, wobei neben der Theorie auch die praktische Umsetzung gezeigt wird. Die Finance-Konzepte werden, wann immer möglich, an konkreten Beispielen des deutschen und des schweizerischen Finanzmarkts angewandt. Darüber hinaus findet sich eine Vielzahl von Aufgaben am Ende der jeweiligen Kapitel, was den anwendungsorientierten Charakter des Buches unterstreicht. Das Buch ist weitestgehend modular aufgebaut, sodass der Leser auch einzelne Modelle, wie etwa das Markowitz-Modell, das Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) oder das Black/Scholes-Modell, gezielt nachschlagen kann. Das Buch richtet sich an Studierende der Wirtschaftswissenschaften, die sich in den mittleren Semestern an Universitäten und Fachhochschulen befinden, aber auch an Praktiker, die in den Bereichen Finanzanalyse und Portfoliomanagement arbeiten oder eine solche berufliche Tätigkeit in der Finanzindustrie anstreben.
