One of many compendious and stupefying booklets containing the minute details of how one calculates for example, Floating Rate Options, should your currency happen to be South African Rand. There were 2000 ISDA Definitions, and they were superseded by the even drearier, more compendious, 2006 ISDA Definitions.

Good work, everyone.
