Pricing vanilla and exotic options with a deep learning approach for PDEs
In this paper, the authors discuss all aspects of derivative pricing under the Heston–CLV model: calibration with an efficient Fourier method; a Monte Carlo simulation with second-order convergence; and accurate partial differential equation pricing…

In this study, the authors identify the three types of risks involved in an art-secured lending operation and present a framework to assess their combined effects via a Monte Carlo simulation.
In this work, we present a new Monte Carlo algorithm that is able to calculate the pathwise sensitivities for discontinuous payoff functions.
This paper proposes a new, flexible framework using Monte Carlo methods to price Parisian options not only with constant boundaries but also with general curved boundaries.
