Publication# Note on the relation between profile scalelengths and lambda's

Abstract

The calculation of the inverse scalelengths $R/L_T$, $R/L_n$ may depend on the choice of the radial variable, depending on the definition of the scalelength. The value of $\lambda_T$ and $\lambda_n$, as defined in [O. Sauter {\it et al}, Phys. Plasmas {\bf 21} (2014) 055906], do depend on the radial variable used in the exponential. We discuss the various options and the typical values obtained with C-Mod and TCV equilibria.

Option style

In finance, the style or family of an option is the class into which the option falls, usually defined by the dates on which the option may be exercised. The vast majority of options are either European or American (style) options. These options—as well as others where the payoff is calculated similarly—are referred to as "vanilla options". Options where the payoff is calculated differently are categorized as "exotic options". Exotic options can pose challenging problems in valuation and hedging.

Options strategy

Option strategies are the simultaneous, and often mixed, buying or selling of one or more options that differ in one or more of the options' variables. Call options, simply known as Calls, give the buyer a right to buy a particular stock at that option's strike price. Opposite to that are Put options, simply known as Puts, which give the buyer the right to sell a particular stock at the option's strike price. This is often done to gain exposure to a specific type of opportunity or risk while eliminating other risks as part of a trading strategy.

Binary relation

In mathematics, a binary relation associates elements of one set, called the domain, with elements of another set, called the codomain. A binary relation over sets X and Y is a new set of ordered pairs (x, y) consisting of elements x in X and y in Y. It is a generalization of the more widely understood idea of a unary function. It encodes the common concept of relation: an element x is related to an element y, if and only if the pair (x, y) belongs to the set of ordered pairs that defines the binary relation.

Deciding on a course of action requires both an accurate estimation of option values and the right amount of effort invested in deliberation to reach suf fi cient con fi dence in the fi nal choice. In a previous study, we have provided evidence, across a s ...

We study the extent to which credit index (CDX) options are priced consistent with S&P 500 (SPX) equity index options. We derive analytical expressions for CDX and SPX options within a structural credit-risk model with stochastic volatility and jumps using ...

In this article, we account for the liquidity risk in the underlying assets when pricing European exchange options, which has not been considered in the literature. An Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process with the mean -reversion property is selected to model the ma ...
