Wavelet Optimized Valuation Of Financial Derivatives
We introduce a simple but efficient PDE method that makes use of interpolation wavelets for their advantages in compression and interpolation in order to define a sparse computational domain. It uses finite difference filters for approximate differentiation, which provide us with a simple and sparse stiffness matrix for the discrete system. Since the method only uses a nodal basis, the application of non-constant terms, boundary conditions and free-boundary conditions is straightforward. We give empirical results for financial products from the equity and fixed income markets in 1, 2 and 3 dimensions and show a speed-up factor between 2 and 4 with no significant reduction of precision.
