Suppose we have a set of $N_T$ maturities $\tau_t$ and a set of $N_k$ strikes $K_k$ .For each maturity-strike combination $(\tau_t,K_k)$ we have a market price (for example) $Caplet(\tau_t,K_k)=C_{tk}$ and a corresponding model price $Caplet(\tau_t,K_k,\Lambda)=C^\Lambda_{tk}$ in which $\Lambda$ is Hull-Whit's Parameters. The first category minimize the ...

The ADF test assumes the DGP $$ \Delta y_t = \alpha +\beta t +\gamma y_t +\delta_1 \Delta y_{t-1}+\cdots +\delta_k \Delta y_{t-k}+\epsilon_t $$ The parameters are estimated using OLS on a sample of length $T$. You might impose $\alpha=0$ and/or $\beta=0$, this will give you different null hypotheses to test. But your test is always $\gamma=0$, and the ...

By definition, the payoff of a log-contract of maturity $T$ writes $$ \phi(S_T) = \ln\left(\frac{S_T}{S_0}\right) $$ Let $\Pi_t$ denote the $t$-value of such a contingent claim. We are interested in the price at $t=0$, best known as the option premium. Theory tells us that the latter premium can be computed as $$ \Pi_0 = e^{-rT} E^{\mathbb{Q}} \left[ ...

Assuming you've used this definition for the NIG distribution and that you've managed to come up with estimates $(\hat{\alpha}, \hat{\beta}, \hat{\mu}, \hat{\delta} )$ of the individual NIG parameters, your question boils down to: "How to simulate paths from the global log-return process $R_t = \ln(S_t/S_0)$ for all $t \in [0,T]$, assuming i.i.d. ...

For #1 and #2 I really enjoyed this Edx course from UC Berkeley: Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Computation And for #3 you seem to have the sources already :)

Andersen--Broadie converts an exercise strategy into an upper bound. The better the exercise strategy the better the upper bound. You can get the exercise strategy by using regression to approximate the continuation value and this is pretty standard -- the LS Method is widely used but does have defects. Once you have an exercise strategy you need the value ...
