Abstract [en]

Stochastic approximation methods for rewards of American type options are studied. Pay-off functions are non random possibly discontinuous functions or random càdlàg functions. General conditions of convergence for binomial, trinomial, and skeleton reward approximations are formulated. Underlying log-price processes are assumed to be random walks. These processes are approximated by log-price processes given by random walks with discrete distributions of jumps. Backward recurrence algorithms for computing of reward functions for approximating log-price processes are given. These approximation algorithms and their rates of convergence are numerically tested for log-price processes represented byGaussian and compoundGaussian random walks. Comparison of the above approximation methods is made.
