@article{Baustian2019SolutionOO, title={Solution of option pricing equations using orthogonal polynomial expansion}, author={Falko Baustian and Katerina Filipov{\'a} and Jan Posp{\'i}sil}, journal={ArXiv}, year={2019}, volume={abs/1912.06533} }

In this paper we study both analytic and numerical solutions of option pricing equations using systems of orthogonal polynomials. Using a Galerkin-based method, we solve the parabolic partial diferential equation for the Black-Scholes model using Hermite polynomials and for the Heston model using Hermite and Laguerre polynomials. We compare obtained solutions to existing semi-closed pricing formulas. Special attention is paid to the solution of Heston model at the boundary with vanishing…
