Topic

From Black Scholes to Black Holes

Abstract

We outline an array of ‘econophysics’ related techniques to modelling options pricing, focusing on the role of symmetries in pricing options and its connection to the math of black holes. We then extend to broader applications of these techniques in data science problems in general involving spatio-temporal data.
