Abstract

We discuss a multiscale framework that exploits separation of time scales and makes use of asymptotic analysis for stochastic differential equations. The asymptotic analysis leads to parsimonious expressions for pricing of various financial instruments. We discuss calibration of the model and the role of the various parameters and model components.
