# Black-Scholes equation

In Stein-Shakarchi's book Fourier Analysis (p. 170), the solution of the Black-Scholes equation $$\frac{\partial V}{\partial t}+rs\frac{\partial V}{\partial s}+\frac{\sigma^2s^2}{2}\frac{\partial^2 V}{\partial s^2}-rV=0$$ for $0\lt t\lt T$

with boundary condition $V(s,T)=F(s)$, is given as

$$V(s,t)=\frac{e^{-r(T-t)}}{\sqrt{2\pi\sigma^2(T-t)}}\int_0^\infty e^{-\frac{(\log(s/s^*)+(r-\sigma^2/2)(T-t))^2}{2\sigma^2(T-t)}} F(s^*)\,ds^*.$$

My own derivation shows that $ds^*$ in the formula should be replaced by $$\frac{ds^*}{s^*}.$$

Is this a typo in the book?

That is not really the Black and Scholes equation, which is stochastic. – AD. Nov 13 '10 at 6:11
That is what the book calls it. – TCL Nov 15 '10 at 14:31
