Title:"Approximate solutions to second order parabolic equations, with application to finance"
Seminar:Ph.D. Thesis Defense
Speaker:Chao Liang, Adviser: Xiantao Li and Victor Nistor
Abstract Link:http://
Abstract:
We further develop the Dyson-Taylor method, which aims to get a series expansion approximation to the solution of second parabolic equations, with variable coefficients. I will explain how to use a slightly different way to construct the approximate solution, and show algorithms to compute the approximation to arbitrarily high order. Time-dependent coefficients and higher order parabolic PDEs will also be considered. For the application, I will present the result for the implied volatility approximation for CEV/SABR/Heston models.
