Options on realized variance in Log-OU models


Drimus, Gabriel G (2012). Options on realized variance in Log-OU models. Applied Mathematical Finance, 19(5):477-494.

Abstract

We study the pricing of options on realized variance in a general class of Log-OU stochastic volatility models. The class includes several important models proposed in the literature. Having as common feature the log-normal law of instantaneous variance, the application of standard Fourier-Laplace transform methods is not feasible. We derive extensions of Asian pricing methods, to obtain bounds, in particular, a very tight lower bound for options on realized variance.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
