Willow tree Ho, Andy C.T.


We present a tree algorithm, called the willow tree, for financial derivative pricing. The setup of the tree uses a fixed number of spatial nodes at each time step. The transition probabilities are determine by solving linear programming problems. The willow tree method is radically superior in numerical performance when compared to the binomial tree method.
