Abstract

In this article, we propose a numerical algorithm for computing price of discrete single and double barrier option under the \emph{Black-Scholes} model. In virtue of some general transformations, the partial differential equations of option pricing in different monitoring dates are converted into simple diffusion equations. The present method is fast compared to alternative numerical methods presented in previous papers.
