Geometric Analysis and Partial Differential Equations Seminar

Geometric Analysis and Partial Differential Equations Seminar Series at UOW
Speaker

Prof. Song-Ping Zhu (University of Wollongong)

Title

American-style Parisian options and their pricing formulae

Abstract

In this talk, we shall first discuss the pricing of various American-style Parisian options under the Black-Scholes model. After pointing out the fundamental difference between American-style “in” and “out” Parisian options, we present an analytic solution for American-style up-and-in Parisian options, which does not explicitly involve a moving boundary as far as the “mother option” is concerned. The solution is worked out after combining the “moving window” technique developed in Zhu and Chen (2013) and the method of images, in order to simplify the solution procedure. Our final solution is written in the form of three double integrals, which can be easily computed numerically.
