Abstract. In this paper, we obtain an analytical solution of the Black-Scholes equation for the European and the American put options by using the Mellin integral transform method. The analytical solution thus obtained of the Black-Scholes equation for the European put option is compared with the existing already numerical solutions. By using a join Mellin-Laplace integral transforms method, a solution of a boundary value problem for a fractional Black-Scholes equation is also derived. For some prescribed values of the parameters, computational values of the analytical results obtained are compared with some known numerical solutions.
