A model-free no-arbitrage price bound for variance options
In the framework of Galichon, Henry-Labordère and Touzi, we consider the model-free no-arbitrage bound of variance option given the marginal distributions of the underlying asset. We first make some approximations which restrict the computation on a bounded domain. Then we propose a gradient projection algorithm together with a finite difference scheme to approximate the bound. The general convergence result is obtained. We also provide a numerical example on the variance swap option.
