We analyze the optimal reserve price in a second price auction when there are 𝑁 types of bidders whose valuations are drawn from different distribution functions. The seller cannot determine the specific “distribution type” of each bidder. In this paper, we give sufficient conditions for the uniqueness of the optimal reserve price. Then, we give sufficient conditions that ensure the seller will not use a reserve price; hence, the auction will be efficient.

Local volatility model applied to BIST30 european warrants: pricing and hedging
Kirazoğlu, Zekiye Sıla; Sezer, Ali Devin; Department of Financial Mathematics (2016)
One of the basic observations on pricing options is that the assumption of constant volatility does not agree with data and market price data gives a volatility smile that depends on maturities and strike prices. The first model that developed to be compatible with this observation is the local volatility model. The purpose of this work is to study the performance of the local volatility model on BIST30 warrants and compare it to the standard Black Scholes model. To estimate the local volatility model from d...
Monotonicity of Liquidity sensitive Option Prices with respect to Market Liquidity Parameters
Kuş, Selin Özlem; Sezer, Ali Devin; Department of Financial Mathematics (2022-2-18)
Classical option pricing models assume that market prices of traded securities are given and independent of the actions of the traders. Recently, a number of option pricing models emerged where the impact of hedging transactions on prices of the traded securities is also taken into account in the pricing of the option. In this term project we study one of these models proposed by Gueant and Pu that is based on the optimal liquidation framework of Almgren and Chriss. The model includes the price impact of th...
Stochastic Models Forpricing And Hedging Derivatives İn Incomplete Makets: Structure, Calibration, Dynamical Programming, Risk Optimization
Tezcan, Cihangir(2009-09-30)
THE PURPOSE AND THE RATIONALE (AMAÇ VE GEREKÇE) The common standard pricing methods of financial assets and derivative instruments determine the price as the fair value. The latter is defined as a unique arbitrage free price in a complete market. It is determined as expected value of the corresponding discounted payoff w.r.t. to a unique equivalent martingale measure (EMM). This method essentially relies on the assumption that that the market is complete, such that the buyer price and seller price match exa...
Application of stochastic volatility models with jumps to BIST options
Rahiminejat, Monireh; Sezer, Ali Devin; Department of Financial Mathematics (2017)
This thesis gives a derivation of call and put option pricing formulas under stochastic volatility models with jumps; the precise model is a combination of Merton and Heston models. The derivation is based on the computation of the characteristic function of the underlying process. We use the derived formulas to fit the model to options written on two stocks in the BIST30 index covering the first two months of 2017. The fit is done by minimizing a weighted $L_2$ distance between the observed prices and the ...
Computation of Malliavin Greeks in Hybrid StochasticVolatility Models
Yılmaz, Bilgi; Yolcu Okur, Yeliz (2015-05-16)
Contrary to Black-Scholes model in stochastic volatility models, the stock price’s volatility assumed to be a stochastic process and the Brownian motions of volatility and stock price process are correlated with each other. Moreover, in some models, called hybrid stochastic volatility models, the interest rate also assumed to be a stochastic process. Because of the stochastic volatility, stochastic interest rate and correlated Brownian motions, a closed form solution for the Greeks of the options usually do...
