Numerical Treatment to a Non-local Parabolic Free Boundary Problem Arising in Financial Bubbles
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, we continue to study a non-local free boundary problem arising in financial bubbles. We focus on the parabolic counterpart of the bubble problem and suggest an iterative algorithm which consists of a sequence of parabolic obstacle problems at each step to be solved, that in turn gives the next obstacle function in the iteration. The convergence of the proposed algorithm is proved. Moreover, we consider the finite difference scheme for this algorithm and obtain its convergence. At the end of the paper, we present and discuss computational results.
