### Self-Financing, Replicating Hedging Strategies, an incomplete thermodynamic analogy

- Economics
- 2002

In the theory of riskfree hedges in continuous time finance, one can start with the delta-hedge and derive the option pricing equation, or one can start with the replicating, self-financing hedging…
