 Abstract
Vecer derived a degenerate parabolic equation characterizing the price of Asian options with generally sampled average. It is well understood that there exists a unique probabilistic solution to Vecer`s PDE but it remained unclear whether the probabilistic solution is a classical solution. We prove that the probabilistic solution to Vecer`s PDE is indeed regular.
