Talk Information

Options are commonly used derivative products in financial industry. The mathematical theory of valuing an option was initiated by Black--Scholes (1973), several other models have been proposed and applied in practice since then. In this talk we shall briefly review the popular models for pricing options, then discuss these models from both analytical and computational points of view. For the analytical part, the heat kernel approach, the decomposition formula for American style options and the analytical approximation for Hestons stochastic volatility model will be mentioned. For the computation part, we shall discuss the finite element (discontinuous Galerkin) method for computing American options and the fast algorithm for the jump-diffusion models.
