Introduction to Stochastic Calculus Applied to Finance by Damien Lamberton

Describe the connection issue. Fiinance reader is referred to Glasserman et al. Mn and An are entirely determined using the previous equations and we see that Mn is a martingale and that An is predictable and non-decreasing because Un lambdrton a supermartingale.

Actually, it can be shown cf. An agent holds the American put introductioh time 0. From a thorough study of the Black-Scholes model, we will attempt to give to the reader the means to understand those extensions. Prove that if S is a solution of 4. This result will be used in Chapter 6. Now, consider a defaultable zero-coupon bond, with maturity Twhich, at stohastic Tpays one unit of currency if default has not occurred and nothing in case of default before or at time T.

Essen- tially, the method is similar to the one used in the European case. If this quantity is non-negative, the writer of the option loses money, otherwise he earns some. We introduce this method in a very simple context.


According to Proposition 7. Firstly, we show that Tn is a stopping time.

We denote by Cn resp. The computations involving conditional expectations are based on the fol- lowing properties: Equivalent martingale measures and no-arbitrage. Why do we consider continuous-time models? We can now use the model to price a call or a put with maturity T on a single stock.

In the light of these considerations, the introducrion point of the modelling will be based upon the following hypothesis: Stochastics and Stochastics Reports, 29 2: The principle is the following: The second chapter deals with American options. Solutions for these computer experiments written in Scilab are available on http: Wiley, New York, That completes the proof of 3. The converse property is not true, but we have the following result.

The processes Xt and Zt being continuous, this proves that P a. Journal of Applied Probability, 32 2: The following theorem shows that any Brownian martingale can be represented in terms of a stochastic integral. On the other hand, in case of default before time TnB will make a payment to A. For a full proof, the reader ought to refer to Friedman The def- inition of the conditional expectation is based on the following theorem see Jacod and ProtterChapter Nielsen Book Data This follows immediately from Proposition 6.

The investor must be able to pay back his debts in the riskless or the risky assets at any time. Simulation of models introdiction jumps We have investigated in Chapter 7 an extension of the Black-Scholes model with jumps; we now describe a method for simulating this process. Let X be a solution of 3.


That is why numerical methods are needed. Denote by N the standard cumulative normal distribution function. The model is valid on the interval [0, T ], where T is the maturity of the option. El Inttroduction and M. An obvious con- sequence of this fact is that one always has interest to rewrite the quantity to compute as the expectation of a random variable that has a smaller variance: We then have to make sure lambrton this model is compatible with hypothesis H.

The approach we proposed in Section 1. Credit risk is associated with the risk of default of a counterparty.

Draw the histogram of the vector and compare it with the exact distri- bution of a normal random variable with mean 0 and variance 1. Pn the value at time n of a European call resp. The number r x can be interpreted as the instantaneous interest rate.

However, these schemes are often used in practice because of their good convergence properties, as we shall see shortly. If we consider the future as certain, i.

Choosing the parameters In computer experiments, the parameters of the model can be chosen as follows:
