Abstract

This chapter discusses computational methods for approximating portfolio and asset pricing problems. Formulation of these problems is usually specified along with components, preferences, payoffs, etc., that are analytic functions. This implies that the solutions to these problems acquire this property, so that these solutions can be accurately approximated by polynomials ...
