Title: Closed Form Representations for the Minimal Hedging Portfolios of American Type Contingent Claims
Abstract: In the framework of the classical Black and Scholes model of security market we present the explicit formulas of the minimal hedging portfolios for a number of reward processes of the "classical", lookback and Asian type. These results complement the solutions previously received by Mc Kean, Shepp and Shiryaev, Duffie and Harrison, Kramkov and Mordecki.
