AbstractBy using the homotopy analysis method, we derive a new explicit approximate formula for the optimal exercise boundary of American options on an underlying asset with dividend yields. Compared with highly accurate numerical values, the new formula is shown to be valid for up to 2 years of time to maturity, which is ten times longer than existing explicit approximate formulas. The option price errors computed with our formula are within a few cents for American options that have moneyness (the ratio between stock and strike prices) from 0. 8 to 1. 2, strike prices of 100 dollars and 2 years to maturity. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
