Abstract [en]

Asian options are exotic financial derivative products which price must be calculated by numerical evaluation. In this thesis, we study certain ways of solving partial differential equations, which are associated with these derivatives. Since standard numerical techniques for Asian options are often incorrect and impractical, we discuss their variations, which are efficiently applicable for handling frequent numerical instabilities reflected in form of oscillatory solutions. We will show that this crucial problem can be treated and eliminated by adopting flux limiting techniques, which are total variation dimishing.
