  • Abstract

A sparse-grid method for solving multi-dimensional backward stochastic differential equations (BSDEs) based on a multi-step time discretization scheme [31] is presented. In the multi-dimensional spatial domain, i.e. the Brownian space, the conditional mathematical expectations derived from the original equation are approximated using sparse-grid Gauss-Hermite quadrature rule and (adaptive) hierarchical sparse-grid interpolation. Error estimates are proved for the proposed fully-discrete scheme for multi-dimensional BSDEs with certain types of simplified generator functions. Finally, several numerical examples are provided to illustrate the accuracy and efficiency of our scheme.
