Uniform bounds for Black--Scholes implied volatility

Article, Preprint English OPEN
Tehranchi, Michael;

In this note, Black--Scholes implied volatility is expressed in terms of various optimization problems. From these representations, upper and lower bounds are derived which hold uniformly across moneyness and call price. Various symmetries of the Black--Scholes formula ... View more
