Abstract

Malliavin and Mancino (2002) suggest a promising method for measuring asset volatilities, which was later used by many researchers.

However, there are some mistakes in proof in original paper. Considering univariate case and making some further simplifying assumptions I show how one can give a correct proof. Most likely, there are no principle difficulties to modify this proof for the general case that was initially considered by Malliavin and Mancino.

Keywords: volatility measurement, Fourier series method
