### Can I treat bonds as put options?

I don't know if it is what your refer to, but for sufficient low values of K, you have the following approximation:Put(T,K) = K * (D(0,T) - B(0,T)) where D(0,T) is the discount factor.

### Richardson extrapolation -- Newbie question

<r>You can also get this paper:<URL url="http://www.math.ubc.ca/~feldman/m256/richard.pdfIt">http://www.math.ubc.ca/~feldman/m256/richard.pdfIt</URL> is well explained. You can use richardson extrapolation with space step or time step. As long as your solution depends on a step, you can use richards...

### Maximum spot value PDE

<t>I have a jump to default model with a default intensity lambda and a volatility sigma:lambda = a * (S0 / S)^p sigma = b where p, a and b are constant parameters and p > 0.I need to price (with a PDE here) a defaultable call with a strike equal to the forward, however I have no closed form for thi...

### finite element solution

<t>So the idea is to use a fully implicit scheme (for all time steps) to get L0-stable and then to use second order approximation (LM method) in time and richardson extrapolation to get stable. That's it ?As my initial condition is a dirac , could it be a solution to simply smooth it ? I have seen a...

### finite element solution

thank you very much for your answer . In fact, I found another paper on the subject and I used a Rannacher technique 1/4. It works quite well. If I still have troubles, I will move to your solution.

### finite element solution

Does someone has a copy of this article please ? :"Finite element solution of diffusion problems with irregular data" from R. Rannacher.It is not on Rannacher's homepage and I didn't find it for free on the web.

### calibration and implementation of convertible bond models

<t>In fact, for the simple case where p = 0 and "Test Case A" I found a "naive price" for the corresponding convertible bond equal to 96.15 instead of 96.6. In fact, I have also tested this case with a professional pricer and I also don't find this price of 96.6. Anyone has tried to reproduce these ...
