ADI schemes for pricing American options under the Heston model
In this paper a simple, effective adaptation of Alternating Direction Implicit (ADI) time discretization schemes is proposed for the numerical pricing of American-style options under the Heston model via a partial differential complementarity problem. The stability and convergence of the new methods are extensively investigated in actual, challenging applications. In addition a relevant theoretical result is proved.
