A path of a simple process. We shall think of the interplay between the simple process A(t) and the Brownian motion W(t) in (4.2.1) in the following way. Regard W(t) as the price per share of an asset at time i. (Since Brownian motion can take negative as well as positive values, it is not a good model of the price of a limited-liability asset such as a stock. For the sake of this illustration, we ignore that issue.) Think of to,ti, ,tn x as the trading dates in the asset, and think...

Where W is a Brownian motion under the risk-neutral measure P. In Exercise 4.9 h , the delta of this option is computed to be c fO, x N d T,x . This problem provides an alternate way to compute CsfO, . i We begin with the observation that if h s s K , then If a K, then h' s is undefined, but that will not matter in what follows because S T has zero probability of taking the value K. Using the formula for h' s , differentiate inside the expected value in 5.9.2 to obtain a formula for c fO, . ii...

In the other case, the order of a Riemann and an Ito integral are being reversed. This step is justified in the appendix of 83 .

Having proved 2.3,23 for Q-measurable indicator random variables X, we may use the standard machine developed in the proof of Theorem 1.5.1 of Chapter 1 to obtain this equation for all -measurable random variables X for which XY is integrable. This shows that XE Y i satisfies the partial-averaging condition that characterizes XY Q , and hence XE Y Q is the conditional expectation E XY . iii If we estimate X based on the information in Q and then estimate the estimate based on the smaller amount...

Associated with Brownian motion there is a filtration T t , t gt 0, such that for each t gt 0 and u gt t, W t is T t -measurable and W u - tf t is independent of T t . Brownian motion is both a martingale and a Markov process. Its transition density is 1 lt y- gt 2 p r,x,y e . v2nT This is the density in the variable y for the random variable W s t given that Wis x.

Whenever Sj, B-i,.,,, are disjoint Borel subsets of R. Now let f x be a real-valued function defined on R. For the following construction, we need to assume that for every Borel subset B of R, the set z x B is also a Borel subset of R. A function with this property is said to be Borel measurable Every continuous and piecewise continuous function is Borel measurable. Indeed, it is extremely difficult to find a function that is not Borel measurable. We wish to define the Lebesgue integral JRf x...
