"A simple model for Financial Indexes with some application"
Mathematical finance is applied mathematics concerned with financial markets. Two of its major subjects are: 1. Mathematically modeling the prices of assets and indexes; 2. Option Pricing.
We first recall the Black & Scholes model for asset prices, then present an easy model that overcomes some weak points of Black & Scholes and other models (in particular the absence of multiscaling effects and of volatility autocorrelation decay). Finally, we give an overview of the option-pricing problem.
