Bermudan swaptions in Hull-White one-factor model: analytical and numerical approaches
A popular way to value (Bermudan) swaption in a Hull-White or extended Vasicek model is to use a tree approach. In this note we show that a more direct approach through iterated numerical integration is also possible. A brute force numerical integration would lead to a complexity exponential in the number of exercise dates in the base of the number of points ($p^N$). By carefully choosing the integration points and their order we can reduce it to a complexity $pN^2$ versus a quadratic $(pN)^2$ in the tree. We also provide a semi-explicit formula that leads to a faster converging implementation.
