    Learning materials for financial instruments pricing - theory

    Hello guys,

    long story short, I am looking for good materials to help on the way to deeply understand mechanics of models
    used presently to evaluate financial instruments on the market.

    The long-term goal is maybe to catch-up on the latest theoretical results in the area.

    I studied analysis in theory at the university, so I am primarily skilled in topics like
    ODE and PDE, dynamical systems, functional analysis, measure theory.
    However I don't have very much of the education on topics like advanced statistics or stochastic processes.

    I had a course in probability and statistics that finished with basic types of discrete and continuous distributions,
    and their parameters, and some lectures on random vectors.

    From business math I am familiar only with the basics, like interest types, term structure of interest rates
    and forward rates, bonds pricing, projects profitability, equations of value and stuff like that.

    I'd rather build the knowledge from the basics than start from the middle,
    so what I am asking is maybe to help to choose materials to cover needed topics on the way to the ultimate goal.

    Thanks and regards
    A.

    Good start.

    Maybe one or two of these? https://www.wallstreetmojo.com/top-b...-income-books/
    Or these: https://www.amazon.com/Black-Scholes.../dp/0786310251
    Skip past the elementary one: https://www.amazon.com/Best-Sellers-...books/16244311
    Of Course, the Society of Actuaries is all about this sort of thing: https://www.soa.org/publications/books/
    Just to get you started in this fascinating idea: https://towardsdatascience.com/intro...e-e396e98d8bf3

    Good luck!
