The solid part of the curve indicates the range between the smallest and largest strikes (the interval on which we have information from the price data). The dashed part of the curve is the extrapolation outside the range of the strikes of the option data. We compare the density implied by the volatility smile and Black’s call option price formula to the density for the lognormal model with the volatility parameter chosen as the average of the implied volatilities. This lognormal density is shown as the dashed curve in the plot to the right in Fig.
