I have this equation I found in a paper. I used copy as Notebook
expression and made test to see how it pasted back in Mathematica so it
should give you the same result.

  "dC(t,S) = (",
      \`\(\[PartialD]C\/\[PartialD]t +
              \(\(s\^2\) \[Sigma]\^2\)\/2\ \[PartialD]\^2
            \)\ dt\  + \(\[PartialD]C\/\[PartialD]S\) dS + o(dt)\)]] }],
FrontEndVersion->"Microsoft Windows 3.0", ScreenRectangle->{{0, 1024},
{0, 712}}, WindowSize->{866, 616},
WindowMargins->{{2, Automatic}, {Automatic, 2}} ]

How do we translate this form of equation to a Mathematica equation ?

Any suggestion on how to solve it ?

I don't know if this help but this equation is describing the derivative
price movement.

So I presume C => Call, S => Stock, Sigma => Volatility etc.

If you need more information I'd be please to answer as best I can.
