**A concise expression of BTM**

6
**With continuous dividend yield q**

7
**Multi-period BTM for American options**

At any nodes of the tree, check if early exercise is optimal.

8
Barrier options Barrier options are triggered by the action of the underlying hitting a prescribed value at some time before expiry. Consider an up-out call: if the underlying price remains below the barrier level until maturity, the contract has a usual call payoff at expiry (red line). However, if the underlying reaches the level before expiry, then the option becomes worthless because it has ``knocked out'‘ (blue line).

**Multi-period BTM for barrier options**

Barrier options are weakly path-dependent

10
**Strongly path-dependent options (I)**

Strong path-dependent options: Asian options Lookback options Type of payoffs: Fixed strike Floating strike

11
**Strongly path-dependent options (II)**

Type of Asian payoffs Arithmetic average Geometric average

12
**Strongly path-dependent options (III)**

Type of lookback payoffs Maximum Minimum

**BTM for Asian arithmetic options (I)**

14
**BTM for Asian arithmetic options (II)**

A concise expression

15
**BTM for lookback maximum**

16
**Single-state variable BTM for strongly path-dependent options (I)**

17
**Single-state variable BTM for strongly path-dependent options (II)**

18
**Single-state variable BTM for floating strike lookback put**

A single-state variable tree:

**Single-state variable BTM for floating strike Asian arithmetic**

The single-state variable tree does not recombine! The amount of computation grows exponentially with the number of time steps.

**Single-state variable BTM for American-style floating strike path-dependent options**

21
**Single-state variable BTM for fixed strike path-dependent options**

For European case, a single-state variable BTM is available by a different transformation (Roger and Shi (1995)); For American case, not available.

22
**Forward shooting grid method (FSGM)**

Drawback of BTM For some path-dependent options, the number of tree nodes may grow exponentially with the number of time steps FSGM A local binomial model Implementation is confined to a lattice, instead of a tree. The number of nodes of the lattice does not grow exponentially. Single-state variable case General case Interpolation is needed in some scenarios.

24
**Two-state variable FSGM for arithmetic Asian options (I)**

A similar procedure; No interpolation is required.
