As co-originator of the Black-Scholes
options pricing model, he was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences in 1997 with Prof.
After the proposition of Black and Scholes options valuation model, Dan Galai (1977) conducted one of the first tests of market efficiency by identifying mispriced options using Black-Scholes
model on Chicago Board of Options Exchange (CBOE).
Topics include the Black-Scholes
PDE for self-financing portfolios, the probabilistic martingale approach to computing option prices, estimation of volatility, interest rate modeling, and default risk in the bond markets.
Along the way he developed an options pricing model that predated Black-Scholes
by an additional 20 years.
Moreover, we show how we can recuperate non-Gaussian Black-Scholes
formulas using distortion operators and we provide illustrations of their performance.

EQUATION comes from a financial economist who provides a history of the options pricing formula, one of the world's most significant intellectual achievements.
equation was the mathematical justification for the trading that plunged the world's banks into catastrophe.
Almost all of the modern, complex financial models are based on some variation of the same quantitative methods used in the Black-Scholes
Both recipients are recognized for their significant contributions to the financial markets, including the discovery and development of the Black-Scholes
options pricing model, used to determine the value of options derivatives.
The Fischer Black Prize is awarded biannually to a financial economist under age 40 for a body of original research that is relevant to finance practice as exemplified by the research of the late Fischer Black, the co-author of the seminal Black-Scholes
option pricing model and other highly original contributions.
Coverage encompasses modern portfolio theory, the Black-Scholes
option pricing formula, and the Shapiro-Wilk test for stock market data.
