Abstract:
This paper deals with analytic studies for solving the inverse problem of identifying purely price-dependent volatilities from given option price data. Using the classical theory of parabolic differential equations we formulate and analyze the forward operator as a mapping between the Hilbert spaces H^1(R)and L^2(R). We investigate continuity and Fréchet differentiability of this operator and prove the discontinuity of the inverse operator. We use Tikhonov regularization and present assertions to the stable solvability of this problem.
