 Black-Scholes formula Explanation:From the Chicago Board Options Exchange: "Black-Scholes formula: The first widely-used model for option pricing. This formula can be used to calculate a theoretical value for an option using current stock prices, expected dividends, the option's strike price, expected interest rates, time to expiration and expected stock volatility. While the Black-Scholes model does not perfectly describe real-world options markets, it is still often used in the valuation and trading of options." The formula calculates options prices given several known factors and one unknown factor which is future stock volatility. Conversely, it can be used to calculate implied volatility from historical option prices. I guess mathematicians were trying to apply this formula to the valuation of gas in storage. Marc
