Title: Static Option Replication as a Radon Transform Inverse Problem


    • The Carr-Madan spanning formula, which underlies the computation of the VIX, decomposes any single-asset European option into a portfolio of vanilla calls and puts.
    • The formula may be extended to replicate multi-asset European options, such as worst-of/best-of and dispersion options, with a portfolio of vanilla basket calls that are comparatively more liquid and easier to price
