This thesis details methods and procedures to compute prices and hedging strategies
for derivative securities in financial mathematics using stochastic analytic, numerical
and variance reduction techniques.
Results are obtained on explicit hedge ratio representations for non-smooth payoff

methods are used to determine hedge ratios for the maximum of several assets and lookback
options. A number of...[Show more]
