The regularized implied local volatility equations -A new model to recover the volatility of underlying asset from observed market option price

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this paper, we propose a new continuous time model to recover the volatility of underlying asset from observed market European option price. The model is a couple of fully nonlinear parabolic partial differential equations (see (34), (36)). As an inverse problem, the model is deduced from a Tikhonov regularization framework. Based on our method, the recovering procedure is stable and accurate. It is justified not only in theoretical proofs, but also in the numerical experiments.
