This paper considers the computational issue of the optimal stopping problem for the stochastic functional differential equation treated in [6] The finite difference method developed by Barles and Souganidis [3] is used to obtain a numerical approximation for the viscosity solution of the infinite dimensional Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman variational inequality (HJBVI) associated with the optimal stopping problem. The convergence results are then established.
