In retrospect, I think my real contribution is not so much as to have developed the local volatility than having defined the notion of instantaneous forward variance, conditional or unconditional, and explained the mechanisms to synthesize them. What were the reactions of the market at that time? I have therefore tried to build a single model that is compatible with all vanilla options prices, with a first discrete approach in a binomial tree.

In a recent interview on this site, Elie Ayache stated: This paper showed how to build a logarithmic profile from vanilla options European options and delta-hedging to replicate the realized variance, allowing in particular to synthesize the instantaneous forward variance, therefore considering that we can deal with it. He was among the first volatility traders in the matif!

Arbitrage Pricing with Stochastic Volatility – Semantic Scholar

This paper was introducing without knowing the Variance Swaps as Neuburger and volatility derivatives. The correlation, or the non-linear combination of variances and covariances, can only be treated approximately. For the first point, it is an empirical question, much discussed and on which views are widely shared, but, again, the purpose of local volatility is not to predict the future but to establish the forward values that can be guaranteed.


Option Pricing when the Variance is Changing. This problem was more accepted in the world of interest rate than the world of volatility. The field has matured and innovative methods have become common subjects taught at the university. You are the author of the famous “Dupire” model or local volatility model, extensively used in the front-office.

The first of these two decades has been the pioneer days, then the process has developed and the regulatory constraints require more documentations for the models to justify them.

For the multi-asset case, the situation is more complicated. This is still due to the fundamental fact that the current calibration data requires the conditional expectation of the instantaneous variance, which is none other than the local variance.

The model has the following characteristics and is the only one to have: Computational Applied Mathematics The distinction between the smile problem and the problem of its dynamic is only due to prjcing accident of the history arbiitrage now gives the impression that we discover, with the smile dynamic, a new and exciting issue, while it is the same old problem from the beginning: The quantities that can be treated synthetically are not volztility volatility and the correlation, but the variance and covariance, to some extent.

Mastering the volatility requires to be able to build positions fully exposed, unconditionally to the volatiliity level trade or purely conditionally to the volatility trading the skew, among others.

My paper Pricing and Hedging with Smiles was presented in June with a version in risk Magazine of ” Pricing with a smile” published in January Options Values under Stochastic Volatility. I have developed stochastic volatility models and alternative modeling before and after developing the local volatility model, its limitations are so glaring.

This assumption is obviously a very strong hypothesis, unsustainable, as the Black-Scholes model which assumes constant volatility.

Arbitrage Pricing with Stochastic Volatility

So I had two models: Intraders were more and more interested in another market distortion in relation with Black-Scholes: However local volatilities or more precisely their square, the local variances themselves play a central role because they are quantities that we can hang from existing options, with arbitrage positions on the strike dimension against the maturity.

To do this properly, it is fundamental to “purify” the strategies for them to reflect these rupire without being affected by other factors. In the SABR, two parameters affect the skew: Mark Rubinstein and Berkeley had a binomial tree that could not calibrate several maturities.

This accident of history is the local volatility model “.
