An explicit weak solution for the 3/2 stochastic volatility model is obtained and used to develop a simulation algorithm for option pricing purposes. The 3/2 model is a non-affine stochastic volatility model whose variance process is the inverse of a CIR process. This property is exploited here to obtain an explicit weak solution, similarly to Kouritzin (2018). A simulation algorithm based on this solution is proposed and tested via numerical examples. The performance of the resulting pricing…

EXACT SIMULATION OF THE 3/2 MODEL
This paper discusses the exact simulation of the stock price process underlying the 3/2 model. Using a result derived by Craddock and Lennox using Lie Symmetry Analysis, we adapt the Broadie-Kaya
Explicit Heston Solutions and Stochastic Approximation for Path-dependent Option Pricing.
The approach complements Heston (1993) and Broadie and Kaya (2006) by handling the case of path-dependence in the option's execution strategy by developing and applying explicit weak solutions to stochastic differential equations.
THE 4/2 STOCHASTIC VOLATILITY MODEL: A UNIFIED APPROACH FOR THE HESTON AND THE 3/2 MODEL
We introduce a new stochastic volatility model that includes, as special instances, the Heston (1993) and the 3/2 model of Heston (1997) and Platen (1997). Our model exhibits important features:
Efficient Simulation of the Heston Stochastic Volatility Model
Stochastic volatility models are increasingly important in practical derivatives pricing applications, yet relatively little work has been undertaken in the development of practical Monte Carlo

This paper suggests a method for the exact simulation of the stock price and variance under Hestons stochastic volatility model and other affine jump diffusion processes and achieves an O(s-1/2) convergence rate, where s is the total computational budget.

An algorithm based on the exact scheme of Broadie and Kaya to simulate price paths under the Heston model is introduced and appears to yield small biases on European and Asian option prices when compared to the most popular schemes.
