Abstract: In this thesis, we center our research around the analytical approximation of American put options with the Multilevel Monte Carlo simulation approach. The focus lies on reducing the computational complexity of estimating an expected value arising from a stochastic differential equation. Numerical results showcase that the simulations are consistent with the theoretical order of convergence of Monte Carlo simulations. The approximations are accurate and considerately more computationally efficient than the standard Monte Carlo simulation method.
