We introduce a skewed version of the Student-t distribution, whose main advantage is that its shape depends on only … four parameters, of which two directly control for the levels of skewness and kurtosis. We can thus easily vary parameters … to compare different distributions and use the parameters as inputs to price other options. We explain the method …

We derive an estimator for Black-Scholes-Merton implied volatility that, when compared to the familiar Corrado & Miller [JBaF, 1996] estimator, has substantially higher approximation accuracy and extends over a wider region of moneyness.
