Pricing Complex Barrier Options with General Features Using Sharp Large Deviation Estimates
In this paper we adapt the simulation procedures, already developed in a previous paper, in order to evaluate single and double barrier options with cash rebates and Parisian barrier options. Our method is based on Sharp Large Deviation estimates, which allow one to improve the usual Monte Carlo procedure. Numerical results are provided and show the validity of the proposed simulation algorithm.
