The process {Z(t), t ≥ 0}, called in [14] the Normal Compound Poisson (NCP) process, is therefore a process with independent stationary increments, whose distribution (the NCP distribution) over unit time interval, is given by: X|V ∼ N (μ, θ + σ 2 V ), where V ∼ Poisson(λ). ) of X are given by ∞ F (x) = λn e−λ Φ n! n=0 x−μ θ + σ2 n , 2 φX (u) = exp iμu − u2 θ/2 + λ(e−u (5) σ2 /2 − 1) . f. of a standard normal distribution. The distribution of X is thus a normal with mixing on the variance, is symmetric about μ, and has the same form irrespective of the size of time increment t.

Variance-Gamma and Monte Carlo Michael C. Fu Robert H. edu Summary. The Variance-Gamma (VG) process was introduced by Dilip B. Madan and Eugene Seneta as a model for asset returns in a paper that appeared in 1990, and subsequently used for option pricing in a 1991 paper by Dilip and Frank Milne. This paper serves as a tutorial overview of VG and Monte Carlo, including three methods for sequential simulation of the process, two bridge sampling methods, variance reduction via importance sampling, and estimation of the Greeks.
