  • Product Description

The Monte Carlo approach has proved to be a valuable and flexible computational tool in modern finance. A number of Monte Carlo simulation-based methods have been developed within the past years to address the American option pricing problem. The aim of this book is to present and analyze three famous simulation algorithms for pricing American style derivatives: the stochastic tree; the stochastic mesh and the least squares method (LSM). The author first presents the mathematical descriptions underlying these numerical methods. Then the selected algorithms are tested on a common set of problems in order to assess the strengths and weaknesses of each approach as a function of the problem characteristics. The results are compared and discussed on the basis of estimates precision and computation time. Overall the simulation framework seems to work considerably well in valuing American style derivative securities. When multi-dimensional problems are considered, simulation based methods seem to be the best solution to estimate prices since the general numerical procedures of finite difference and binomial trees become impractical in these specific situations.
