Lin, Peter (2008) Monte Carlo simulation algorithms for the pricing of American options. Masters thesis, University of Oxford.
One looks at the pricing of American options using Monte Carlo simulations. The selected theories on the low-biased and high-biased algorithms are reviewed. Numerical results from the implementations of the chosen algorithms are presented and analysed. One also investigates the effects of applying antithetic variables to the high-biased algorithm, showing that the variance reducing technique provides great improvements to the existing algorithm.
