A note on a generalized Black-Scholes formula
A generalized Black-Scholes formula is presented for the case when the volatility part of the percentage changes in a stock price obeys a mean reverting Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process. When the parameter of the Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process converges to zero the generalized formula converges to the Black-Scholes formula.
