2 19 Itˆ o’s lemma As we will see in the following section, the fair value C of a European call option on a single asset at time t depends implicitly on the time t and the asset price St . This leads to the question of the infinitesimal variation of the fair price of the option between t and t + ∆t. , (resp. twice) continuously differentiable on [0, ∞) (resp. R)) then 1 ∆Ct = ∂t C∆t + ∂S C∆St + ∂S2 C(∆St )2 + R 2 with R the rest of the Taylor expansion. The arguments of the function C have not been written so as not to burden the notations.
The trader will borrow money and invest in the real estate. If the real estate return remains the same, the trader earn money. We say that there is an arbitrage situation as money can be earned without any risk. Let us suppose now that as we apply this winning strategy and start earning a lot of money, others who observe our successful strategy will start doing the same thing. According to the offer-demand law, as more and more people will invest in the real estate by borrowing money, the fixed income rate will increase and the real estate return will decrease.
Y . It can be shown that the map X → EP [X|G] is linear. v. X and Y admitting a probability density, the conditional expectation of X ∈ L1 conditional to Y = y can be computed as follows: The probability to have X ∈ [x, x + dx] and Y ∈ [y, y + dy] is by definition p(x, y)dxdy. 4) R Indeed, following the definition, one needs to show that EP [f (Y )EP [X|Y ]] = EP [f (Y )X] for all bounded measurable function f . 4) into this equation, we obtain a trivial equality. 8. , Q takes its values in R+ and Q(A) < ∞ ∀A ∈ F).
