In the previous posts, we saw that it is easy to create a PDE solver for pricing options. But, what happens if one likes to price more complex structures like convertible bonds or variable annuities?

An efficient way of describing an options payoff is ThetaML. In many cases, ThetaML is used as a configuration for Monte Carlo Simulations. Now, Stefanie Schraufsetter presents a new book on PDE methods based on ThetaML:

For examples on ThetaML in the context of PDE solver see the presentations from Stefanie Schraufstetter and Janos Benk at the PRMIA Workshop on Variable Annuities.
