Compound options are second order derivatives which give their holders the right for exercising over other derivatives. They are options on options. Compound options have many financial applications. Pricing methods for exotic options such as compounds are much more complex than the regular options. There are different models for pricing compound options. Simulating direct function of compound option pricing model based on the Black-Scholes model needs 7 input variables including current underlying asset price, basic option strike price, the time to expiration of the basic option, the volatility of the underlying asset price, the risk-free interest rate, compound option strike price, and time to expiration of the compound option.

Black-Scholes (BS) model is a well-known model for pricing options. Option is a derivative
financial instrument which gives its owner the right of buying the underlying asset at a pre
specified date for a pre specified price. BS model calculates the option price using 5 input
variables and parameters including current underlying price, strike price, time to maturity,
interest rate and the volatility of the underlying asset price.

The Gesture Mouse is a device that captures finger motion via infra-red sensing, and translates the movements into standard Human Interface Device (HID) mouse commands. As the user moves his/her fingers in the air, the cursor moves correspondingly on the computer display. The Gesture Mouse is platform-independent so that no extra driver software is required.
