Sixth-Order Compact Differencing with Staggered Boundary Schemes and 3(2) Bogacki-Shampine Pairs for Pricing Free-Boundary Options

  title={Sixth-Order Compact Differencing with Staggered Boundary Schemes and 3(2) Bogacki-Shampine Pairs for Pricing Free-Boundary Options},
  author={Chinonso Nwankwo and Weizhong Dai},
We propose a stable sixth-order compact finite difference scheme with a dynamic fifth-order staggered boundary scheme and 3(2) R-K Bogacki and Shampine adaptive time stepping for pricing American style options. To locate, fix and compute the free-boundary simultaneously with option and delta sensitivity, we introduce a Landau transformation. Furthermore, we remove the convective term in the pricing model which could further introduce errors. Hence, an efficient sixth-order compact scheme can…

Deep learning and American options via free boundary framework

The proposed deep learning method presents an efficient and alternative way of pricing options with early exercise features and establishes equations that approximate the early exercise boundary and its derivative directly from the DNN output based on some linear relationships at the left boundary.



An adaptive and explicit fourth order Runge–Kutta–Fehlberg method coupled with compact finite differencing for pricing American put options

Comparing with some existing methods in the numerical experiment, it shows that the present method has a better performance in terms of computational speed and provides a more accurate solution.

Explicit RKF-Compact Scheme for Pricing Regime Switching American Options with Varying Time Step

This research work recast the free boundary problem into a system of nonlinear partial differential equations with a multi-fixed domain and introduces a transformation based on the square root function with a fixed free boundary from which a high order analytical approximation is obtained for computing the derivative of the optimal exercise boundary in each regime.

Abstract Valuation of the American options encountered commonly in finance is quite difficult due to the possibility of early exercise alternatives. Since an exact solution for the American options…

Strong Stability-Preserving High-Order Time Discretization Methods

This paper reviews and further develops a class of strong stability-preserving high-order time discretizations for semidiscrete method of lines approximations of partial differential equations, and builds on the study of the SSP property of implicit Runge--Kutta and multistep methods.
