Abstract

In this paper we present a simple and easy-to-use method for computing accurate estimates (in closed form) of Black-Scholes barrier option prices with time-dependent parameters. This new approach is also able to provide tight upper and lower bounds (in closed form) for the exact barrier option prices.
