We establish boundary regularity results in H\"older spaces for the degenerate parabolic problem obtained from the Heston stochastic volatility model in Mathematical Finance set up in the spatial domain (upper half-plane) $\mathbb{H} = \mathbb{R}\times (0,\infty)\subset \mathbb{R}^2$. Starting with nonsmooth initial data $u_0\in H$, we take advantage of smoothing properties of the parabolic semigroup $\mathrm{e}^{-t\mathcal{A}}\colon H\to H$, $t\in \mathbb{R}_+$, generated by the Heston model…

Solution of option pricing equations using orthogonal polynomial expansion

This paper uses a Galerkin-based method to solve the parabolic partial diferential equation for the Black-Scholes model using Hermite polynomials and for the Heston model usingHermite and Laguerre polynmials, and compares obtained solutions to existing semi-closed pricing formulas.



The Time-Discrete Method of Lines for Options and Bonds:A PDE Approach

Few financial mathematical books have discussed mathematically acceptable boundary conditions for the degenerate diffusion equations in finance. In The Time-Discrete Method of Lines for Options and

Degenerate-elliptic operators in mathematical finance and higher-order regularity for solutions to variational equations

We establish higher-order weighted Sobolev and Holder regularity for solutions to variational equations defined by the elliptic Heston operator, a linear second-order degenerate-elliptic operator

Market completion using options

It is shown that any stochastic volatility model is then completed with an arbitrary European type option and that adding path-dependent options such as a variance swap to the set of primary assets, instead of plain vanilla options, also completes the market.

Arbitrage Theory in Continuous Time

The fourth edition of this textbook on pricing and hedging of financial derivatives, now also including dynamic equilibrium theory, continues to combine sound mathematical principles with economic

Operator splitting methods for pricing American options under stochastic volatility

The analysis suggests that the Crank–Nicolson method and the operator splitting method based on it have the same asymptotic order of accuracy and the numerical experiments show that the operators splitting methods have comparable discretization errors.

A Closed-Form Solution for Options with Stochastic Volatility with Applications to Bond and Currency Options

I use a new technique to derive a closed-form solution for the price of a European call option on an asset with stochastic volatility. The model allows arbitrary correlation between volatility and
