High-frequency trading is an algorithm-based computerized
trading practice that allows firms to trade stocks in
milliseconds. Over the last fifteen years, the use of
statistical and econometric methods for analyzing high-
frequency financial data has grown exponentially. This
growth has been driven by the increasing availability of
such data, the technological advancements that make high-
frequency trading strategies possible, and the need of
practitioners to analyze these data. This comprehensive
book introduces readers to these emerging methods and
tools of analysis. Yacine Ait-Sahalia and Jean Jacod
cover the mathematical foundations of stochastic
processes, describe the primary characteristics of high-
frequency financial data, and present the asymptotic
concepts that their analysis relies on.

High school All-American Neely Crenshaw was probably the
best quarterback ever to play for the legendary Messina
Spartans. Fifteen years have gone by since those glory
days, and Neely has come home to Messina to bury Coach
Eddie Rake, the man who molded the Spartans into an
unbeatable football dynasty. As Coach Rake-s -boys- sit
in the bleachers waiting for the dimming field lights to
signal his passing, they replay the old glories, and try
to decide once and for all whether they love Eddie Rake -
or hate him. For Neely Crenshaw, still struggling to come
to terms with his explosive relationship with the Coach,
his dreams of a great career in the NFL, and the choices
he made as a young man, the stakes could not be higher.
"Grisham touches the soul and scores a winning touchdown
with his sixteenth novel".
