Difference-quadrature schemes for nonlinear degenerate parabolic integro-PDE
I. H. Biswas, E. R. Jakobsen and K. H. Karlsen
Abstract: We derive and analyze monotone difference-quadrature schemes for Bellman equations of controlled Levy (jump-diffusion) processes. These equations are fully non-linear, degenerate parabolic integro-PDEs interpreted in the sense of viscosity solutions. We propose new “direct” discretizations of the non-local part of the equation that give rise to monotone schemes capable of handling singular Levy measures. Furthermore, we develop a new general theory for deriving error estimates for approximate solutions of integro-PDEs, which thereafter is applied to the proposed difference-quadrature schemes.
