This paper proposes two related approximation schemes, based on a discrete grid on a finite time interval [0,T], and having a finite number of states, for a pure jump Lévy process Lt. The sequences of discrete processes converge to the original process, as the time interval becomes finer and the number of states grows larger, in various modes of weak and strong convergence, according to the way they are constructed. An important feature is that the filtrations generated at each stage by the approximations are subfiltrations of the filtration generated by the
continuous time
Lévy process. This property is useful for applications of these results, especially to
optimal stopping
problems, as we illustrate with an application to
American option
pricing. The rates of convergence of the discrete approximations to the underlying
continuous time
process are assessed in terms of a “complexity” measure for the
option pricing
algorithm.By adding in a construction for a
discrete approximation
to Brownian motion, we also extend the approximation results to a general Lévy process.
