dc.description.abstractWe extend a framework based on Mellin transforms and show how to modify the approach to value American call options on dividend paying stocks. We present a new integral equation to determine the price of an American call option and its free boundary using modi ed Mellin transforms. We also show how to derive the pricing formula for perpetual American call options using the new framework. A recovery of a result due to Kim (1990) regarding the optimal exercise price at expiry is also presented. Finally, we apply Gauss-Laguerre quadrature for the purpose of an efficient and accurate numerical valuation.en_US
