Option pricing in market models driven by telegraph processes with jumps
López Alfonso, Oscar Javier
This thesis is divided into two parts: the first part is devoted to present the telegraph processes, the Poisson processes with telegraph compensator and the jump-telegraph processes. The study presented in this first part includes the calculation of the distributions of each process, the means and variances, as well as the moment generating functions among other properties. The second part of the work is devoted to the option pricing models based on telegraph processes with jumps. In this part we show how to calculate the risk-neutral measures, find the no-arbitrage condition in this type of models and finally the price of European call and put options is calculated.
