The on-line interactive Complexity Option Game allows players to test their intuition and knowledge of complexity and American options.

Its companion paper is “Pricing complexity options”, to appear in the journal Algorithmic Finance, joint with Math graduate Malihe Alikhani, and Shidler graduates Amir Pakravan and Babak Saadat.

The paper introduces a thought experiment: a financial derivative based on the complexity of a sequence of up and down ticks of a stock price.

The difficulty of succeeding in this game may be related to the phenomenon of bounded rationality, to be discussed by Lance Fortnow during the 11th International Conference on Computability, Complexity and Randomness, UH Manoa, January 4-8, 2016.
