An Introduction to Financial Analytics Using SAS
By Sourish Das, Lokesh Nagar, and Bala Gopalakrishnan

This example-driven book provides an easy-to-understand approach to learning finance and statistical modeling, with special attention to application with the use of SAS. Most books on financial engineering are quite mathematical, requiring an advanced background in stochastic calculus. In this book the authors have taken a data mining approach, which blends theory and practice. They present an easy introduction to the topics of finance and statistical modeling, with sufficient methodological detail and the required SAS code to implement models in practice with real data. The book is especially suitable for undergraduate to masters-level students of statistical finance. Professionals in finance will also find it handy for model implementation and indicators using SAS.

Time Series Analysis in SAS: Beyond Forecasting
By David J. Corliss

Written for the intermediate and advanced SAS user, this book has as its focus the many practical applications and concrete examples in SAS of a wide variety of important time series analysis tools other than forecasting. Many of these tools can be found in statistical journals, but these publications lack application to the situations faced by researchers in many areas. Moreover, a complete handbook for time series applications exists only for ARIMA models in general and forecasting in particular, not the many other techniques described in academic journals. This book will complement SAS's successful text, SAS for Forecasting Time Series, by John C. Brocklebank and David A. Dickey, expanding the SAS tools available to users to include many more, such as the following: cluster analysis, data visualization, work with missing data, and wavelets. This book also introduces time series analysis in SAS to researchers now using R for time series analysis.
