In this paper, we present the analytical solution for the Laplace transform of the joint distribution of the first passage time and undershoot/overshoot value under a regime-switching jump-diffusion model. With the help of some martingale technique, the Laplace transform of the first passage time becomes the solution of a system of linear equations. The methodology discussed here is fairly elementary and can be applied to many stopping-time problems under a regime-switching model with jump risks. Some numerical examples are given to demonstrate the usefulness of our method.
