Abstract

Path integrals are useful and general. Here we show how to calculate Greeks using path integrals. In particular we exhibit the solution to an otherwise troublesome calculation – gamma for a digital option. A subsequent paper will present more detail.

Keywords: Greeks, path integrals, gamma digital option
