In order to incorporate the credit value adjustment (CVA) in derivative contracts, we propose a set of numerical methods to solve a nonlinear partial differential equation [2] modelling the CVA. Additionally to adequate boundary conditions proposals, characteristics methods, fixed point techniques and finite elements methods are designed and implemented. A numerical test illustrates the behavior of the model and methods.
