The nonlinear Black-Scholes equation has been increasingly attracting interest over the last two decades, because it provides more accurate values by considering transaction costs as a viable assumption. In this paper we review the fully nonlinear Black-Scholes equation with an adjusted volatility which is a function of the second derivative of the price and then we prove two new theorems in this realistic model.
