    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

    Författare :Jonas Persson; Lina von Sydow; Per Lötstedt; Johan Tysk; Jari Toivanen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; 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

  4. 4. Restructured district heating price models and their impact on district heating users

    Författare :Jingjing Song; Björn Karlsson; Fredrik Wallin; Hailong Li; Heimo Zinko; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; district heating; restructured price model; price model survey; pricing strategy; consumption profile; consumption pattern; alternative cost; Energy- and Environmental Engineering; energi- och miljöteknik;

    Sammanfattning : District heating (DH) is considered to be an efficient, environmentally friendly and cost-effective method for providing heat to buildings, since electricity is usually co-generated in biomass fuelled combined heat and power (CHP) plants. This gives it an important role in the mitigation of climate change. LÄS MER
