About this journal
The Journal of Computational Finance is an international peer-reviewed journal dedicated to advancing knowledge in the area of financial mathematics. The journal is focused on the measurement, management and analysis of financial risk, and provides detailed insight into numerical and computational techniques in the pricing, hedging and risk management of financial instruments.
The journal welcomes papers dealing with innovative computational techniques in the following areas:
- Numerical solutions of pricing equations: finite differences, finite elements, and spectral techniques in one and multiple dimensions.
- Simulation approaches in pricing and risk management: advances in Monte Carlo and quasi-Monte Carlo methodologies; new strategies for market factors simulation.
- Optimization techniques in hedging and risk management.
- Fundamental numerical analysis relevant to finance: effect of boundary treatments on accuracy; new discretization of time-series analysis.
- Developments in free-boundary problems in finance: alternative ways and numerical implications in American option pricing.

Estimating risks of European option books using neural stochastic differential equation market models
The authors investigate how arbitrage-free neural stochastic differential equation market models can produce realistic scenarios for the joint dynamics of multiple European options on a single underlying and demonstrate how they can be used as a risk…
Robust pricing and hedging via neural stochastic differential equations
The authors propose a model called neural SDE and demonstrate how this model can make it possible to find robust bounds for the prices of derivatives and the corresponding hedging strategies.
Least squares Monte Carlo methods in stochastic Volterra rough volatility models
The authors offer a VIX pricing algorithm for stochastic Volterra rough volatility models where the volatility is dependent of the vol-of-vol which reproduces key features of real-world data.
Analytical conversion between implied volatilities based on different dividend models
The authors propose an explicit formula for the conversion of implied volatilities corresponding to dividend modelling assumptions which covers a wide range of strikes and maturities.

Multilevel Monte Carlo simulation for VIX options in the rough Bergomi model
The authors consider the pricing of the Chicago Board options Exchange VIX, demonstrating experiments highlighting the efficiency of a multilevel approach in pricing of VIX options.
Pricing the correlation skew with normal mean–variance mixture copulas
The author puts forward a pricing methodology for European multi-asset derivatives that consists of a flexible copula-based method that can reproduce the correlation skew and is efficient enough for use with large baskets.
Optimal trade execution with uncertain volume target
This paper demonstrates that risk-averse traders can benefit from delaying trades using a model that accounts for volume uncertainty.

Probabilistic machine learning for local volatility
In this paper, the authors propose to approach the calibration problem of local volatility with Bayesian statistics to infer a conditional distribution over functions given observed data.
Rainbows and transforms: semi-analytic formulas
In this paper the authors show how the techniques introduced by Hurd and Zhou in 2010 can be used to derive a pricing framework for rainbow options by using the joint characteristic function of the logarithm of the underlying assets.
Branching diffusions with jumps, and valuation with systemic counterparties
