About Binomial Option Pricing Models

A binomial model is one that calculates option prices from inputs (such as underlying price, strike price, volatility, time to expiration, and interest rate) by splitting time to expiration into a number of steps and simulating price moves with binomial trees.

The first complete binomial option pricing model (known as Cox-Ross-Rubinstein or CRR) was presented by John C. Cox, Stephen Ross, and Mark Rubinstein in 1979, but a number of other binomial models exist.
