Option pricing with Levy-Stable processes generated by Leacutevy-Stable integrated variance
Cartea, Alvaro and Howison, S. (2009) Option pricing with Levy-Stable processes generated by Leacutevy-Stable integrated variance. Quantitative Finance 9 (4), pp. 397-409. ISSN 1469-7688.
We show how to calculate European-style option prices when the log-stock price process follows a Leacutevy-Stable process with index parameter 1 ≤ agr ≤ 2 and skewness parameter -1 ≤ β ≤ 1. Key to our result is to model integrated variance RQUF_A_375020_O_XML_IMAGES\RQUF_A_375020_O_ILM0001.gif as an increasing Leacutevy-Stable process with continuous paths in T.
