If you believe that the fundamental economic relationship is $$ r_{\text{Spread}} = \beta \, r_{\text{Market}} + \text{const} $$ Then in order to obtain the beta of a credit index $I$ with CD01 $c$ to the market you would write $$ r_I = c \, r_{\text{Spread}} $$ and thus $$ r_I = c\, \beta \, r_{\text{Market}} + \text{const} $$ Now you need to ...

The first method gives you the return of a a price-weighted average, like the Dow Jones average. So I suppose it is OK to use. The second method gives you a rebalanced EW (equal weighted) average: you initially invest the same amount (say 1000 dollars) in each stock and then you rebalance to equal weights at each point where you do the calculation. ...

To expand on Randor's answer, the standard Black-Scholes formula as you've given it assumes a constant continuous dividend yield of $q$. To adapt this to cope with discrete deterministic (absolute) dividends $d_i$ at known times $\tau_i$, you could recast the formula in terms of the "dividend-free" stock price: $$S^* := S - \sum_i d_i e^{-r\tau_i}$$ and ...

When valuing a plain index option, there are two options in terms of index dividend: (1) The underlying price is a spot price like in the FTSE 100 case (option is valued off the index): you can use continuous dividend yield. You can imply a dividend yield from a linearized call-put parity: The present value of the dividend payment is ...

Ftse100 would not have a smooth dividend yield, as your formula has, it would be discrete, being much higher on certain days of year than others. In pricing options on ftse, u need to take into account implied dividends (dividends that are implied by put call parity)
