摘要

Pricing arithmetic average options continues to intrigue researchers in the field of financial engineering. Since there is no analytical solution for this problem until present, developing an efficient numerical algorithm becomes a promising alternative. One of the most famous numerical algorithms for pricing arithmetic average options is introduced by Hull and White [10]. In this paper, motivated by the common idea of reducing the nonlinearity error in the adaptive mesh model [7] and the adaptive quadrature numerical integration method [6], the logarithmically equally-spaced placement rule in the Hull and White's model is replaced by an adaptive placement method, in which the number of representative average prices is proportional to the degree of curvature of the option value as a function of the arithmetic average price. Numerical experiments verify the superior performance of our method in terms of reducing the interpolation error. In fact, it is straightforward to apply this method to any pricing algorithm with the techniques of augmented state variables and the piece-wise linear interpolation approximation.
