Later, we will at times simply use the unconditional expectation E to denote E0 . 2. Typical stochastic processes in finance are meaningful if time is discretized. The choice of the elementary unit of time is part of the modeling assumptions and depends on the applications at hand. In pricing theory, the natural elementary unit is often one day but can also be one week, one month as well as five minutes or one tick, depending on the objective. 76), with x0 = 10, constant t = 0 1, t = 0 2, N = 100, and time steps ti = 0 01.

Consider a time interval 0 t = t0 = 0 t1 tN = t , and subdivide it into N ≥ 1 subintervals ti ti+1 of length ti = ti+1 − ti , i=0 N − 1. 79) W tN By usual convention we fix W0 = 0. The joint pdf for the random variables Wt1 representing the probability density at the path points Wti = wi (w0 = 0) is then also a 24 CHAPTER 1 . 78). The set of real-valued random variables Wti i=0 N therefore represents the time-discretized standard Brownian motion (or Wiener process) at arbitrary discrete points in time.

Pricing theory in the dg and dh terms. 135) 2 Here ft = 0, since there is no explicit time dependence. Moreover, since gf2 = 0, the dg 2 term is absent. 137) i=1 Here we have also made use of the replacement dWti dWtj = ij dt. This gives the stochastic differential of ft = gt /ht . 138) i=1 where the drift of f is f = g − h − ni=1 hi gi − hi and the volatility is given by fi = gi − hi . , fi = gi − hi = h − 2 g h. g This will become clear in the sections that follow. , the forward or backward Kolmogorov equation) satisfied by the corresponding transition probability density function, which explicitly involves only terms in the square of the volatilities.
