Analyticity of the Wiener-Hopf factors and valuation of exotic options in L\'evy models
AbstractThis paper considers the valuation of exotic path-dependent options in L\'evy models, in particular options on the supremum and the infimum of the asset price process. Using the Wiener--Hopf factorization, we derive expressions for the analytically extended characteristic function of the supremum and the infimum of a L\'evy process. Combined with general results on Fourier methods for option pricing, we provide formulas for the valuation of one-touch options, lookback options and equity default swaps in L\'evy models.
