Title: Put-call symmetry and self-duality
Abstract: We discuss generalisations of the notions of put-call symmetry and self-duality. These notions have found applications in the pricing and hedging of certain path-dependent contingent claims. Our results include a classification of the possible forms of self-duality in one-dimension: in addition to the arithmetic and geometric duality already appearing the literature, there exists exactly one other type of symmetry among continuous models. We also give a description of the possible forms of put-call symmetry for common models: in dimension greater than two, interesting new symmetries appear.
