Pricing American Put Option using RBF-NN: New Simulation of Black-Scholes


The present work proposes an Artificial Neural Network framework for calculating the price and delta hedging of American put option. We consider a sequence of Radial Basis function Neural Network, where each network learns the difference of the price function according to the Gaussian basis function. Based on Black Scholes partial differential equation, we improve the superiority of Artificial Neural Network by comparing the performance and the results achieved used in classic Monte Carlo Least Square simulation with those obtained by Neural networks in one dimension. Thus, numerical result shows that the Artificial Neural Network solver can reduce the computing time significantly as well as the error training.
