# The Riccati Equation in Mathematical Finance

@article{Boyle2002TheRE, title={The Riccati Equation in Mathematical Finance}, author={Phelim P. Boyle and Wenwen Tian and Fred Guan}, journal={J. Symb. Comput.}, year={2002}, volume={33}, pages={343-355} }

This paper uses ideas from symbolic computation to classify solutions to an important class of problems in mathematical finance and thus provides a linkage between these two fields. We show that Kovacic?s concept of closed-form solutions to the Riccati ordinary differential equation can be used to provide a precise mathematical definition that is useful in certain financial models. We extend this definition to a broader class of problems and discuss how these ideas can be usefully applied to…
