Solving high-dimensional optimal stopping problems using optimization based model order reduction

  title={Solving high-dimensional optimal stopping problems using optimization based model order reduction},
  author={Martin Redmann},
Solving optimal stopping problems by backward induction in high dimensions is often very complex since the computation of conditional expectations is required. Typically, such computations are based on regression, a method that suffers from the curse of dimensionality. Therefore, the objective of this paper is to establish dimension reduction schemes for large-scale asset price models and to solve related optimal stopping problems (e.g. Bermudan option pricing) in the reduced setting, where…

Solving high-dimensional optimal stopping problems using deep learning

An algorithm is proposed for solving high-dimensional optimal stopping problems, which is based on deep learning and computes, in the context of early exercise option pricing, both approximations of an optimal exercise strategy and the price of the considered option.

Low-dimensional approximations of high-dimensional asset price models

This work applies model order reduction (MOR) to obtain a reduced system and explains the reduction procedure, the error of the approximation is analyzed, and the performance of the algorithm is shown conducting several numerical experiments.

Pricing high-dimensional Bermudan options using variance-reduced Monte Carlo methods

We present a numerical method for pricing Bermudan options on a large number of underlyings. The asset prices are modeled with exponential time-inhomogeneous jump-diffusion processes. We improve the

Implied stopping rules for American basket options from Markovian projection

This work proposes to use a stopping rule that depends on the dynamics of a low-dimensional Markovian projection of the given basket of assets to provide a lower bound for the price of the American basket option.

Machine Learning Approximation Algorithms for High-Dimensional Fully Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations and Second-order Backward Stochastic Differential Equations

This work proposes a new method for solving high-dimensional fully nonlinear second-order PDEs and shows the efficiency and the accuracy of the method in the cases of a 100-dimensional Black–Scholes–Barenblatt equation, a100-dimensional Hamilton–Jacobi–Bellman equation, and a nonlinear expectation of a 200-dimensional G-Brownian motion.

Neural network regression for Bermudan option pricing

This work proves the convergence of the well-known Longstaff and Schwartz algorithm when the standard least-square regression is replaced by a neural network approximation, assuming an efficient algorithm to compute this approximation.

Efficient Hierarchical Approximation of High-Dimensional Option Pricing Problems

The objective of this article is to show how an efficient discretization can be achieved by hierarchical approximation as well as asymptotic expansions of the underlying continuous problem.

Deep Optimal Stopping

A deep learning method for optimal stopping problems which directly learns the optimal stopping rule from Monte Carlo samples is developed, broadly applicable in situations where the underlying randomness can efficiently be simulated.

Primal-Dual Simulation Algorithm for Pricing Multidimensional American Options

The proposed algorithm can handle virtually any type of process dynamics, factor structure, and payout specification, and gives valid confidence intervals for the true value of the Bermudan option price.
