Bayraktar, Erhan and Xing, Hao (2009) Pricing American options for jump diffusions by iterating optimal stopping problems for diffusions. Mathematical methods of operations research, 70 (3). pp. 505-525. ISSN 1432-2994
We approximate the price of the American put for jump diffusions by a sequence of functions, which are computed iteratively. This sequence converges to the price function uniformly and exponentially fast. Each element of the approximating sequence solves an optimal stopping problem for geometric Brownian motion, and can be numerically computed using the classical finite difference methods. We prove the convergence of this numerical scheme and present examples to illustrate its performance.
