12 An Option Greeks Primer 11 N’(d1) and N’(d2) In differential calculus, when you take the rate of change (differential), of a given equation or relationship with respect to a given factor or variable, the resulting equation is denoted with a prime – the symbol ‘ . In the material that follows, when we use N’(d1) or N’(d2), the N prime denotes the differential (of N(d1) or N(d2)) with respect to a given variable. You will see N’ in the formula for Gamma and Vega. 12 Understanding Black–Scholes: an intuitive derivation of N(d1) and N(d2) Of all the intimidating equations and formulas (PDEs and otherwise) out there, the derivation of the Black–Scholes formula for a European option easily takes first prize for the most unapproachable of topics for new arrivals in this field.

The linkage to X suggests that this depends solely on when the event ST > X occurs. On the other hand, N(d1) will always be greater than N(d2). This is because in linking it with the contingent receipt of stock in the Black–Scholes equation, N(d1) must not only account for the probability of exercise as given by N(d2) but must also account for the fact that exercise, or rather receipt of stock on exercise, is dependent on the conditional future values that the stock price takes on the expiry date.
