We propose a simple and general method to obtain the boundary crossing probability for Brownian motion. This method can be easily extended to higher dimensional of Brownian motion. It also covers certain classes of stochastic processes associated with Brownian motion. The basic idea of the method is based on being able to construct a nite Markov chain such that the boundary crossing probability of Brownian motion is obtained as the limiting probability of the nite Markov chain entering a set of absorbing states induced by the boundary. Numerical results are given to illustrate our method.
