Course Info

The famous Black-Scholes model for pricing options assumes that the volatility parameter of the underlying asset is constant. It is well known that such an assumption is not consistent with market data. The course will focus on stochastic volatility models, in which volatility is a variable. Correct modeling of volatility is extremely important in the problems of valuation of derivatives.

This course will present mainly "classical" models of stochastic volatility - starting with the Black-Scholes and Black models and ending with the results of the early 2000s.

In addition to theoretical material, a significant part of the course will be devoted to practical exercises with the implementation of stochastic volatility models in Python.
