The aim of the BENCHOP project is to provide the finance community with a common suite of benchmark problems for option pricing. We provide a detailed description of the six benchmark problems together with methods to compute reference solutions. We have implemented seventeen different numerical methods for these problems, and compare their relative performance. All implementations are available on line and can be used for future development and comparisons.
