    abstract = {We analyze the economics of transaction costs in dynamic hedging of contingent claims, making the case for a representative dynamic hedging agent. We argue that the most efficient dynamic hedger incurs no transaction costs when owning options. Furthermore, as options are rarely replicated until maturity, the expected transaction costs of the short options depend mostly on the dynamics of the order flow in the option markets — not on the direct costs of transacting. The conclusion is that transaction costs are a fraction of what has been assumed to be in the literature. For the efficient operators (and those operators only), markets are more dynamically complete than anticipated.},

We constructed multivariate general compound Hawkes processes (MGCHPs) and investigated their properties in limit order books. For the MGCHPs, we proved the law of large numbers (LLN) and two functional central limit theorems (FCLTs), the latter providing insights into the link between price volatilities and order flows in limit order books with several assets. Numerical examples with Intel and Microsoft trading data are also provided.},

Asymptotic methods developed for the arbitrage‐free SABR model are used to obtain explicit, closed‐form formulae for the valuation of European digital call and put options under the SABR model. Results derived in this paper have the same order of accuracy as the closed‐form SABR formulae, and they exactly satisfy put‐call parity for digital options.},
