Abstract: Widely used explicit and implicit schemes each have their own advantages and drawbacks. Predictor-Corrector schemes are designed to be a compromise of the two by retaining both the stability property of the implicit schemes and the computational efficiency of the explicit schemes. I will present in this thesis three different Predictor-Corrector schemes used in the valuation of options. First, I will consider a Predictor-Corrector finite difference scheme using a front-fixing technique for pricing American puts. Secondly, I will introduce a linearly implicit Predictor-Corrector scheme using a penalty method approach for valuing American options. Lastly, I will develop Predictor-Corrector schemes for Jump-Diffusion stochastic differential equations which will be used in Monte Carlo simulations and I will introduce the special case of the valuation of European options. In each section, I focus on the theory and then I give some numerical experiments using my implemented codes.
