Therefore, we argue that the power spectrum analysis for r(T, t) indicates a stochastic process with spectral components decreasing as S(f) ∼ f α =-=[12]-=-. The power spectrum for the increments (Figs.6 and 7 (Right)) is flat, typical of a white noise process. These results are also corroborated by a similar analysis performed on Eurodollars interest ra... |

In this case, it is possible to show that the discounted bond-price process is a martingale and that the martingale measure is unique =-=[19]-=-. Also, the European vanilla call option price on a bond maturing at time T can be obtained [18]. Along these lines, we believe, it is possible to develop a consistent option pricing theory taking int... |

Wim Schoutens has recently published a book on Lévy processes in finance devoted to the extension of martingale methods to a large class of leptokurtic distributions =-=[17]-=-. The method can be described from a heuristic point of view. Let S(t) denote the stochastic process underlying a contingent claim C(S, t); thus, S(t) can be a price process, an interest rate process,... |

As early as 1977, some years after the seminal paper of Black and Scholes, Parkinson generalized their approach to option pricing and explicitly took into account leptokurtic distributions =-=[15]-=-. More recently, Boyarchenko and Levendorskii have studied the problem of option pricing in the presence of a specific distribution which seems to fit well the empirical data in many instances: the tr... |
