comment Strong and weak extrema
I feel like I follow and agree with everything you wrote. But it is exactly this that confuses me. When we add the stronger condition $P'$, we, as you noted, we eliminate some functions. Take a function that we eliminate. This function would then be within the neighborhood of the strong extrema, but not the weak one. How does that then imply the implication strong $\implies$ weak? In other words, it seems as if the weak extremum is "more of an extremum" than the strong one.

Ha, how neat! Of course, not going to explain this one to my student, but I like it.

comment Calculating VaR, CVaR
@RRL Thank you. Are you sure the bounds in the CVaR should not then be reversed, since I am dealing with a profit, rather than a loss density function?

comment Fair Value Of a Call Option
Thank you very much. This question is a question from a past exam from a lecture and your answer seems to go beyond the scope of the lecture (don't get me wrong, it is perfectly understandable, I just cannot imagine a person that'd answer this, having only done the course, as we've never done anything like that and one would have to pull it out of thin air using a great deal of intuition). Thus I am wondering, are there perhaps any hidden assumptions or simplifications (even if they change the nature of the question a bit) that could've been made in a more rudimentary course?
