Abstract: This paper dealt with the problem of discrete time option pricing by the subdiffusive Black-Scholes model with transaction costs. A subdiffusive geometric Brownian motion was introduced as the model of underlying asset prices exhibiting subdiffusive dynamics. In the presence of transaction costs, by a mean self-financing delta-hedging argument in a discrete time setting, a pricing formula for the European call option in discrete time
setting was obtained.

Key words: option pricing, transaction costs, subdiffusive dynamics
