  journal={SIAM J. Scientific Computing},
A semi-Lagrangian method is presented to price continuously observed fixed strike Asian options. At each timestep a set of one dimensional partial integral differential equations (PIDEs) is solved and the solution of each PIDE is updated using semi-Lagrangian timestepping. Crank-Nicolson and second order backward differencing timestepping schemes are studied. Monotonicity and stability results are derived. With low volatility values, it is observed that the non-smoothness at the strike in the… CONTINUE READING
