    Sammanfattning : This thesis presents studies of semi-Markov models for insurance and option rewards. The thesis consists of the introduction and six papers. The introduction presents the results of the thesis in an informal way.In paper A, a general semi-Markov reward model is presented. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Convergence of Option Rewards

    Detta är en avhandling från Västerås : Mälardalen University

    Författare :Robin Lundgren; Mälardalens högskola.; [2010]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MATHEMATICS Applied mathematics; MATEMATIK Tillämpad matematik; Mathematics Applied Mathematics; matematik tillämpad matematik;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis consists of an introduction and five articles devoted to optimal stopping problems of American type options. In article A, we get general convergence results for the American option rewards for multivariate Markov price processes. These results are used to prove convergence of tree approximations presented in papers A, B, C and E. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Accurate Finite Difference Methods for Option Pricing

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Jonas Persson; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Finite differences; Option pricing; Adaptive methods; Numerical Analysis; Numerisk analys;

    Sammanfattning : Stock options are priced numerically using space- and time-adaptive finite difference methods. European options on one and several underlying assets are considered. These are priced with adaptive numerical algorithms including a second order method and a more accurate method. LÄS MER

    Nyckelord :American type option; optimal stopping strategy;

    Sammanfattning : Conditions, which provide a one-threshold structure for optimal stopping strategies for American type options, are given.... LÄS MER

  5. 5. Optimal Stopping and Model Robustness in Mathematical Finance

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Universitetsbiblioteket

    Författare :Henrik Wanntorp; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Optimal stopping; model robustness; American options; free boundary problems; hedging; option pricing; MATHEMATICS Applied mathematics Mathematical statistics; MATEMATIK Tillämpad matematik Matematisk statistik;

    Sammanfattning : Optimal stopping and mathematical finance are intimately connected since the value of an American option is given as the solution to an optimal stopping problem. Such a problem can be viewed as a game in which we are trying to maximize an expected reward. LÄS MER
