Radial basis function methods exhibit several very attractive properties such as a high order convergence of the approximated solution and flexibility to the domain geometry. However the method in its classical formulation becomes impractical for problems with relatively large numbers of degrees of freedom due to the ill-conditioning and dense structure of coefficient matrix. To overcome the latter issue we employ a localisation technique, namely a partition of unity method, while the former issue was previously addressed by several authors and was of less concern in this thesis.

In this thesis we develop radial basis function partition of unity methods for partial differential equations arising in financial mathematics and glaciology. In the applications of financial mathematics we focus on pricing multi-asset equity and credit derivatives whose models involve several stochastic factors. We demonstrate that localised radial basis function methods are very effective and well-suited for financial applications thanks to the high order approximation properties that allow for the reduction of storage and computational requirements, which is crucial in multi-dimensional problems to cope with the curse of dimensionality. In the glaciology application we in the first place make use of the meshfree nature of the methods and their flexibility with respect to the irregular geometries of ice sheets and glaciers. Also, we exploit the fact that radial basis function methods are stated in strong form, which is advantageous for approximating velocity fields of non-Newtonian viscous liquids such as ice, since it allows to avoid a full coefficient matrix reassembly within the nonlinear iteration.

In addition to the applied problems we develop a least squares radial basis function partition of unity method that is robust with respect to the node layout. The method allows for scaling to problem sizes of a few hundred thousand nodes without encountering the issue of large condition numbers of the coefficient matrix. This property is enabled by the possibility to control the coefficient matrix condition number by the rate of oversampling and the mode of refinement.

The price of an option can under some assumptions be determined by the solution of the Black–Scholes partial differential equation. Often options are issued on more than one asset. In this case it turns out that the option price is governed by the multi-dimensional version of the Black–Scholes equation. Options issued on a large number of underlying assets, such as index options, are of particular interest, but pricing such options is a challenge due to the "curse of dimensionality". The multi-dimensional PDE turn out to be computationally expensive to solve accurately even in quite a low number of dimensions.

In this thesis we develop a radial basis function partition of unity method for pricing multi-asset options up to moderately high dimensions. Our approach requires the use of a lower number of node points per dimension than other standard PDE methods, such as finite differences or finite elements, thanks to a high order convergence rate. Our method shows good results for both European style options and American style options, which allow early exercise. For the options which do not allow early exercise, the method exhibits an exponential convergence rate under node refinement. For options that allow early exercise the option pricing problem becomes a free boundary problem. We incorporate two different approaches for handling the free boundary into the radial basis function partition of unity method: a penalty method, which leads to a nonlinear problem, and an operator splitting method, which leads to a splitting scheme. We show that both methods allow for locally high algebraic convergence rates, but it turns out that the operator splitting method is computationally more efficient than the penalty method. The main reason is that there is no need to solve a nonlinear problem, which is the case in the penalty formulation.
