This dissertation provides a brief theoretical introduction to the Malliavin calculus leading to a particular application in finance. The Malliavin calculus concepts are used to aid in the simulation of the Greeks for financial contingent claims. Particular focus is placed on creating efficiency in the more exotic type option simulations, where no closed solution pricing formulae exist.
