KurzbeschreibungIntroduction to principal methods of option pricing. Emphasis on PDE-based methods. Prerequisite MATLAB and Python programming
and knowledge of numerical mathematics at ETH BSc level.
LernzielIntroduce the main methods for efficient numerical valuation of derivative contracts in a
Black Scholes as well as in incomplete markets due Levy processes or due to stochastic volatility
models. Develop implementation of pricing methods in MATLAB and Python.
Finite-Difference/ Finite Element based methods for the solution of the pricing integrodifferential equation.
Inhalt1. Review of option pricing. Wiener and Levy price process models. Deterministic, local and stochastic
volatility models.
2. Finite Difference Methods for option pricing. Relation to bi- and multinomial trees.
European contracts.
3. Finite Difference methods for Asian, American and Barrier type contracts.
4. Finite element methods for European and American style contracts.
5. Pricing under local and stochastic volatility in Black-Scholes Markets.
6. Finite Element Methods for option pricing under Levy processes. Treatment of
integrodifferential operators.
7. Stochastic volatility models for Levy processes.
8. Techniques for multidimensional problems. Baskets in a Black-Scholes setting and
stochastic volatility models in Black Scholes and Levy markets.
9. Introduction to sparse grid option pricing techniques.
SkriptThere will be english lecture notes as well as MATLAB or Python software for registered participants in the course.
