The lecture starts with discrete time models which can be viewed as a proxy for continuous settings. We then develop on the theory of continuous time models. We start with a general Itô-type framework and then specialize to different situations: Markovian models, constant volatility models, local and stochastic volatility models.For each of them, we discuss their calibration, and the valuation and the hedging of different types of options : plain Vanilla and barrier options, contracts on future, American options, options on foreign markets, options on realized variance, etc.
