(File:Economics of climate change chapter3 discounting curves.png|thumb|right|The present value of $1,000, 100 years into the future. Curves represent constant discount rates of 2%, 3%, 5%, and 7%.)The time value of money is the greater benefit of receiving money now rather than an identical sum later. It is founded on time preference.The time value of money explains why interest is paid or earned: Interest, whether it is on a bank deposit or debt, compensates the depositor or lender for the time value of money.It also underlies investment. Investors are willing to forgo spending their money now only if they expect a favorable return on their investment in the future, such that the increased value to be available later is sufficiently high to offset the preference to have money now.- the content below is remote from Wikipedia

History
The Talmud (~500 CE) recognizes the time value of money. In Tractate Makkos page 3a the Talmud discusses a case where witnesses falsely claimed that the term of a loan was 30 days when it was actually 10 years. The false witnesses must pay the difference of the value of the loan "in a situation where he would be required to give the money back (within) thirty days..., and that same sum in a situation where he would be required to give the money back (within) 10 years...The difference is the sum that the testimony of the (false) witnesses sought to have the borrower lose; therefore, it is the sum that they must pay." WEB,weblink Makkot 3a William Davidson Talmud online, The notion was later described by MartÃn de Azpilcueta (1491â€“1586) of the School of Salamanca.Calculations
Time value of money problems involve the net value of cash flows at different points in time.In a typical case, the variables might be: a balance (the real or nominal value of a debt or a financial asset in terms of monetary units), a periodic rate of interest, the number of periods, and a series of cash flows. (In the case of a debt, cash flows are payments against principal and interest; in the case of a financial asset, these are contributions to or withdrawals from the balance.) More generally, the cash flows may not be periodic but may be specified individually. Any of these variables may be the independent variable (the sought-for answer) in a given problem. For example, one may know that: the interest is 0.5% per period (per month, say); the number of periods is 60 (months); the initial balance (of the debt, in this case) is 25,000 units; and the final balance is 0 units. The unknown variable may be the monthly payment that the borrower must pay.For example, Â£100 invested for one year, earning 5% interest, will be worth Â£105 after one year; therefore, Â£100 paid now and Â£105 paid exactly one year later both have the same value to a recipient who expects 5% interest assuming that inflation would be zero percent. That is, Â£100 invested for one year at 5% interest has a future value of Â£105 under the assumption that inflation would be zero percent.WEB,weblink Understanding the Time Value of Money, Shauna, Carther, 3 December 2003, This principle allows for the valuation of a likely stream of income in the future, in such a way that annual incomes are discounted and then added together, thus providing a lump-sum "present value" of the entire income stream; all of the standard calculations for time value of money derive from the most basic algebraic expression for the present value of a future sum, "discounted" to the present by an amount equal to the time value of money. For example, the future value sum FV to be received in one year is discounted at the rate of interest r to give the present value sum PV:
PV = frac{FV}{(1+r)}
Some standard calculations based on the time value of money are: - Present value: The current worth of a future sum of money or stream of cash flows, given a specified rate of return. Future cash flows are "discounted" at the discount rate; the higher the discount rate, the lower the present value of the future cash flows. Determining the appropriate discount rate is the key to valuing future cash flows properly, whether they be earnings or obligations.WEB,weblink Present Value - PV, Investopedia, Staff, 25 November 2003,
- Present value of an annuity: An annuity is a series of equal payments or receipts that occur at evenly spaced intervals. Leases and rental payments are examples. The payments or receipts occur at the end of each period for an ordinary annuity while they occur at the beginning of each period for an annuity due.WEB,weblink Present Value of an Annuity,

Formula
The following formula use these common variables:- PV is the value at time=0 (present value)
- FV is the value at time=n (future value)
- A is the value of the individual payments in each compounding period
- n is the number of periods (not necessarily an integer)
- i is the interest rate at which the amount compounds each period
- g is the growing rate of payments over each time period
Future value of a present sum
The future value (FV) formula is similar and uses the same variables.
FV = PV cdot (1+i)^n
Present value of a future sum
The present value formula is the core formula for the time value of money; each of the other formulae is derived from this formula. For example, the annuity formula is the sum of a series of present value calculations.The present value (PV) formula has four variables, each of which can be solved for by numerical methods:
PV = frac{FV}{(1+i)^n}
The cumulative present value of future cash flows can be calculated by summing the contributions of FVt, the value of cash flow at time t:
PV = sum_{t=1}^{n} frac{FV_}{(1+i)^t}
Note that this series can be summed for a given value of n, or when n is âˆžweblink Geometric Series This is a very general formula, which leads to several important special cases given below.Present value of an annuity for n payment periods
In this case the cash flow values remain the same throughout the n periods. The present value of an annuity (PVA) formula has four variables, each of which can be solved for by numerical methods:
PV(A) ,=,frac{A}{i} cdot left[ {1-frac{1}{left(1+iright)^n}} right]
To get the PV of an annuity due, multiply the above equation by (1 + i).Present value of a growing annuity
In this case each cash flow grows by a factor of (1+g). Similar to the formula for an annuity, the present value of a growing annuity (PVGA) uses the same variables with the addition of g as the rate of growth of the annuity (A is the annuity payment in the first period). This is a calculation that is rarely provided for on financial calculators.Where i â‰ g :
PV(A),=,{A over (i-g)}left[ 1- left({1+g over 1+i}right)^n right]
Where i = g :
PV(A),=,{A times n over 1+i}
To get the PV of a growing annuity due, multiply the above equation by (1 + i).Present value of a perpetuity
A perpetuity is payments of a set amount of money that occur on a routine basis and continue forever. When n â†’ âˆž, the PV of a perpetuity (a perpetual annuity) formula becomes a simple division.
PV(P) = { A over i }
Present value of a growing perpetuity
When the perpetual annuity payment grows at a fixed rate (g, with g < i) the value is determined according to the following formula, obtained by setting n to infinity in the earlier formula for a growing perpetuity:
PV(A),=,{A over i-g}
In practice, there are few securities with precise characteristics, and the application of this valuation approach is subject to various qualifications and modifications. Most importantly, it is rare to find a growing perpetual annuity with fixed rates of growth and true perpetual cash flow generation. Despite these qualifications, the general approach may be used in valuations of real estate, equities, and other assets.This is the well known Gordon Growth model used for stock valuation.Future value of an annuity
The future value (after n periods) of an annuity (FVA) formula has four variables, each of which can be solved for by numerical methods:
FV(A) ,=,Acdotfrac{left(1+iright)^n-1}{i}
To get the FV of an annuity due, multiply the above equation by (1 + i).Future value of a growing annuity
The future value (after n periods) of a growing annuity (FVA) formula has five variables, each of which can be solved for by numerical methods:Where i â‰ g :
FV(A) ,=,Acdotfrac{left(1+iright)^n-left(1+gright)^n}{i-g}
Where i = g :
FV(A) ,=,Acdot n(1+i)^{n-1}
Formula table
The following table summarizes the different formulas commonly used in calculating the time value of money.WEB,weblink NCEES FE exam, These values are often displayed in tables where the interest rate and time are specified.{| class=wikitable!Find!!Given!!Formula|Future value (F)|Present value (P)|F=Pcdot (1+i)^n- A is a fixed payment amount, every period
- G is the initial payment amount of an increasing payment amount, that starts at G and increases by G for each subsequent period.
- D is the initial payment amount of an exponentially (geometrically) increasing payment amount, that starts at D and increases by a factor of (1+g) each subsequent period.
Derivations
Annuity derivation
The formula for the present value of a regular stream of future payments (an annuity) is derived from a sum of the formula for future value of a single future payment, as below, where C is the payment amount and n the period.A single payment C at future time m has the following future value at future time n:
FV = C(1+i)^{n-m}
Summing over all payments from time 1 to time n, then reversing t
FVA = sum_{m=1}^n C(1+i)^{n-m} = sum_{k=0}^{n-1} C(1+i)^k
Note that this is a geometric series, with the initial value being a = C, the multiplicative factor being 1 + i, with n terms. Applying the formula for geometric series, we get
FVA = frac{ C ( 1 - (1+i)^n )}{1 - (1+i)} = frac{ C ( 1 - (1+i)^n )}{-i}
The present value of the annuity (PVA) is obtained by simply dividing by (1+i)^n:
PVA = frac{FVA}{(1+i)^n} = frac{C}{i} left( 1 - frac{1}{(1+i)^n} right)
Another simple and intuitive way to derive the future value of an annuity is to consider an endowment, whose interest is paid as the annuity, and whose principal remains constant. The principal of this hypothetical endowment can be computed as that whose interest equals the annuity payment amount:
text{Principal} times i = C
text{Principal} = C / i + {goal}
Note that no money enters or leaves the combined system of endowment principal + accumulated annuity payments, and thus the future value of this system can be computed simply via the future value formula:
FV = PV(1+i)^n
Initially, before any payments, the present value of the system is just the endowment principal (PV = C/i). At the end, the future value is the endowment principal (which is the same) plus the future value of the total annuity payments (FV = C/i + FVA). Plugging this back into the equation:
frac{C}{i} + FVA = frac{C}{i} (1+i)^n
FVA = frac{C}{i} left[ left(1+i right)^n - 1 right]
Perpetuity derivation
Without showing the formal derivation here, the perpetuity formula is derived from the annuity formula. Specifically, the term:
left({1 - {1 over { (1+i)^n } }}right)
can be seen to approach the value of 1 as n grows larger. At infinity, it is equal to 1, leaving {C over i} as the only term remaining.Continuous compounding
Rates are sometimes converted into the continuous compound interest rate equivalent because the continuous equivalent is more convenient (for example, more easily differentiated). Each of the formulÃ¦ above may be restated in their continuous equivalents. For example, the present value at time 0 of a future payment at time t can be restated in the following way, where e is the base of the natural logarithm and r is the continuously compounded rate:
text{PV} = text{FV}cdot e^{-rt}
This can be generalized to discount rates that vary over time: instead of a constant discount rate r, one uses a function of time r(t). In that case the discount factor, and thus the present value, of a cash flow at time T is given by the integral of the continuously compounded rate r(t):
text{PV} = text{FV}cdot expleft(-int_0^T r(t),dtright)
Indeed, a key reason for using continuous compounding is to simplify the analysis of varying discount rates and to allow one to use the tools of calculus. Further, for interest accrued and capitalized overnight (hence compounded daily), continuous compounding is a close approximation for the actual daily compounding. More sophisticated analysis includes the use of differential equations, as detailed below.Examples
Using continuous compounding yields the following formulas for various instruments:- Annuity:
- PV = {A(1-e^{-rt}) over e^r -1}
- Perpetuity:
- PV = {A over e^r - 1}
- Growing annuity:
- PV = {Ae^{-g}(1-e^{-(r-g)t}) over ^{(r-g)} - 1}
- Growing perpetuity:
- PV = {Ae^{-g} over e^{(r-g)} - 1}
- Annuity with continuous payments:
- PV = { 1 - e^{(-rt)} over r }
Differential equations
Ordinary and partial differential equations (ODEs and PDEs) â€“ equations involving derivatives and one (respectively, multiple) variables are ubiquitous in more advanced treatments of financial mathematics. While time value of money can be understood without using the framework of differential equations, the added sophistication sheds additional light on time value, and provides a simple introduction before considering more complicated and less familiar situations. This exposition follows {{Harv|Carr|Flesaker|2006|loc = pp. 6â€“7}}.The fundamental change that the differential equation perspective brings is that, rather than computing a number (the present value now), one computes a function (the present value now or at any point in future). This function may then be analyzedâ€”how does its value change over timeâ€”or compared with other functions.Formally, the statement that "value decreases over time" is given by defining the linear differential operator mathcal{L} as:
mathcal{L} := -partial_t + r(t).
This states that values decreases (âˆ’) over time (âˆ‚t) at the discount rate (r(t)). Applied to a function it yields:
mathcal{L} f = -partial_t f(t) + r(t) f(t).
For an instrument whose payment stream is described by f(t), the value V(t) satisfies the inhomogeneous first-order ODE mathcal{L}V = f ("inhomogeneous" is because one has f rather than 0, and "first-order" is because one has first derivatives but no higher derivatives) â€“ this encodes the fact that when any cash flow occurs, the value of the instrument changes by the value of the cash flow (if you receive a Â£10 coupon, the remaining value decreases by exactly Â£10).The standard technique tool in the analysis of ODEs is Green's functions, from which other solutions can be built. In terms of time value of money, the Green's function (for the time value ODE) is the value of a bond paying Â£1 at a single point in time u â€“ the value of any other stream of cash flows can then be obtained by taking combinations of this basic cash flow. In mathematical terms, this instantaneous cash flow is modeled as a Dirac delta function delta_u(t) := delta(t-u).The Green's function for the value at time t of a Â£1 cash flow at time u is
b(t;u) := H(u-t)cdot expleft(-int_t^u r(v),dvright)
where H is the Heaviside step function â€“ the notation ";u" is to emphasize that u is a parameter (fixed in any instanceâ€”the time when the cash flow will occur), while t is a variable (time). In other words, future cash flows are exponentially discounted (exp) by the sum (integral, textstyle{int}) of the future discount rates (textstyle{int_t^u} for future, r(v) for discount rates), while past cash flows are worth 0 (H(u-t) = 1 text{ if } t < u, 0 text{ if } t > u), because they have already occurred. Note that the value at the moment of a cash flow is not well-defined â€“ there is a discontinuity at that point, and one can use a convention (assume cash flows have already occurred, or not already occurred), or simply not define the value at that point.In case the discount rate is constant, r(v) equiv r, this simplifies to
b(t;u) = H(u-t)cdot e^{-(u-t)r} = begin{cases} e^{-(u-t) r} & t < u 0 & t > u,end{cases}
where (u-t) is "time remaining until cash flow".Thus for a stream of cash flows f(u) ending by time T (which can be set to T = +infty for no time horizon) the value at time t, V(t;T) is given by combining the values of these individual cash flows:
V(t;T) = int_t^T f(u) b(t;u),du.
This formalizes time value of money to future values of cash flows with varying discount rates, and is the basis of many formulas in financial mathematics, such as the Blackâ€“Scholes formula with varying interest rates.See also
