A parallel implementation of root finding on an SIMD application accelerator is reported. These are roots of stochastic differential equations in the computational finance domain which require a stochastic simulation to be performed for each evaluation of the pricing function. Experiments show that a speedup of 15X can be achieved over using a stand-alone CPU processor, depending on the required accuracy, and the numerical method employed.
