In other words, the B(t) fund defines a capitalization factor over time. It is given by = Economy There are two sources of uncertainty across the economy, represented by two independent standard Brownian motions, (Wi(t), W2(t), TE [0.
We consider a very general economy where transactions are continuous on a givea áme period [0, T]. This economy is characterized by the following four assumptions. NUMERAIRE CHANGING continuously discounted price of any security probability. 4) Dynamics = exp r(u)du (4) of the Risky Asset . Let us assume that there is a risky asset A, in the economy, price dynamics under the risk-neutral probability Q: characterized by the following . d A, = r(t)dt + aa[p d Wi(t) + - d W2(t)] (5) where as denotes the instantaneous standard deviation of the asset return.
O(t) is the instantaneous standard deviation of r(t).
