Abstract:
This paper deals with L^2-estimates for weak solutions of one-dimensional parabolic Cauchy problems. These results were applied to the option pricing problem that arises in the Black-Scholes framework. In particular the continuous dependence of option prices from the underlying volatility and the Fréchet differentiatility are examined in specific spaces.
