## Abstract

In mathematical finance a popular approach for pricing options under some Lévy model would be to consider underlying that follows a Poisson jump diffusion process. As it is well known this results in a partial integro-differential equation (PIDE) that usually does not allow an analytical solution, while a numerical solution also faces some problems. In this paper we develop a new approach on how to transform the PIDE into a class of so-called pseudo-parabolic equations which are well known in mathematical physics but are relatively new for mathematical finance. As an example we will discuss several jump-diffusion models which Lévy measure allows such a transformation.
