Title

The Black-Scholes equation in quantum calculus

Abstract

"The objective of this thesis is to derive a version of the Black-Scholes formula in quantum calculus. Following a brief introduction in finance, quantum calculus, and probability theory, It'̥s lemma is proven under different assumptions. To do so, Taylor's theorem and basic stochastic methods are used. The consequential results are accompanied by examples concerning a change of the range of the needed processes. Moreover, a comparison of these results with those in the continuous case is described. Finally, the quality of the model is evaluated"--Abstract, leaf iii.
