Numerical valuation of European and american options under Kou’s jump-diffusion model. (English) Zbl 1178.35225
In this paper a numerical valuation of European and American options under Kou’s jump-diffusion is developed. After a detailed theoretical development a number of experiments are developed and illustrated the theory in practice. Numerical experiments confirm that the developed methods are very efficient as fairly accurate option prices can be computed in a few milliseconds on a PC.
