We consider the American put problem in a general one-dimensional diffusion model. The risk-free interest rate is constant, and volatility is assumed to be a function of time and stock price.
We use the well-known parabolic obstacle problem and establish the continuity estimate of the optional exercise boundaries of the American put option with respect to the local volatilities, which may be considered as a generalization of the Achdou results .
The Georgian Mathematical Journal was founded by the Georgian National Academy of Sciences and A. Razmadze Mathematical Institute, and is jointly produced with De Gruyter.
The concern of this international journal is the publication of research articles of best scientific standard in pure and applied mathematics. Special emphasis is put on the presentation of results obtained by Georgian mathematicians.
