    Abstract: We present a succinct new approach to derive the Black-Scholes partial differential equation and subsequently the Black-Scholes formula. We proceed to use the formula to price options using stocks listed on Ghana stock exchange as underlying assets. From one year historical stock prices we obtain volatilities of the listed stocks which are subseque... Show More
  • Domain Mean Estimation Using Double Sampling with Non-Linear Cost Function in the Presence of Non Response

    Abstract: This paper describes theoretical estimation of domains mean using double sampling with a non-linear cost function in the presence of non-response. The estimation of domain mean is proposed using auxiliary information in which the study and auxiliary variable suffers from non-response in the second phase sampling. The expression of the biases and me... Show More
