Abstract:
For a specific inverse problem in option pricing, which is focused on time-dependent functions of volatility and option price data, we investigate the applicability of the method of maximum entropy regularization including convergence and convergence rates of regularized solutions. Due to the explicit structure of the forward operator based on a generalized Black-Scholes formula the ill-posedness character of the nonlinear identification problem under consideration can be verified in detail. Numerical case studies illustrate the chances and limitations of the maximum entropy approach versus Tikhonov regularization for the specific problem.
