Approximations and asymptotics of upper hedging prices in multinomial models
AbstractWe give an exposition and numerical studies of upper hedging prices in multinomial models from the viewpoint of linear programming and the game-theoretic probability of Shafer and Vovk. We also show that, as the number of rounds goes to infinity, the upper hedging price of a European option converges to the solution of the Black-Scholes-Barenblatt equation.
