Abstract: We illustrate some financial applications of the Tsallis and Kaniadakis deformed exponential. The minimization of the corresponding deformed divergence is discussed as a criterion to select a pricing measure in the valuation problems of incomplete markets. Moreover, heavy-tailed models for price processes are proposed, which generalized the well-known Black and Scholes model.
Keywords: deformed logarithm; deformed exponential; generalized entropy; martingale measure; generalized Fokker-Plank equation; non-Gaussian option pricing
