Regularity of a degenerate parabolic equation appearing in Vecer’s unified pricing of Asian options

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Vecer derived a degenerate parabolic equation characterizing the price of Asian options with generally sampled average. It is well understood that there exists a unique probabilistic solution to Vecer’s PDE but it remained unclear whether the probabilistic solution is a classical solution. We prove that the probabilistic solution to Vecer’s PDE is indeed regular.
