Extension of the corrected barrier approximation by Broadie, Glasserman, and Kou
This paper considers the problem of pricing discrete barrier options. A discrete barrier option is a barrier option where the barrier is monitored only at specific dates. This paper continues the work initiated by Broadie et al. in [B-G-K] and determine formulas to estimate the price of discrete up-and-out/in calls, down-and-out/in puts and double barrier options. Numerical examples presented in this paper show that the formulas yield good results.
