Abstract [en]

Implied volatility plays a very important role in financial sector. In the assets of trading market,everyone wants to know the implied volatility in the future. However,it is difficult to predict it. In this paper,we use a new well-posed algorithm to recover implied volatility under the Black-Scholes theoretical framework. I reproduce this algorithm at first,then prove its stability and give some examples to test. The results show that this algorithm can work and the error is small. We can use it inpractice.
