Mathematically, one can construct continuous-time processes by starting from a sequence of approximating processes defined for discrete-time values i t i = 0 N , and then pass to the limit as t → 0. 83) N→ by assuming that the discrete-time process xtN is constant over the partition subintervals. The elementary increments xt = xt+ t − xt are random variables that obviously tend to zero as t → 0, but which are still meaningful in this case. 85) where we introduced the time-averaged drift ¯ = ¯ t and volatility ¯ = ¯ t over the time period 0 t t ∈ + .
Evaluating at the origin gives X 0 = E 1 = 1. The existence of derivatives k k X 0 / ui , k ≥ 1 is dependent upon the existence of the respective moments of the random variables Xi . 67) = E X , k ≥ 1. ] From these integrals we thus see that the existence of the moments depends on the decay behavior of p at the limits x → ± . For instance, a distribution that exhibits asymptotic decay at least as fast as a decaying exponential has finite moments to all orders. Obvious examples of these include the distributions of normal, exponential, and uniform random variables.
A random variable that is a sum of random normal variables is, therefore, also normally distributed (see Problem 2). Because of this property, multivariate normal distributions can be regarded as affine transformations of standard normal distributions with = 0n×1 and C = In×n (the identity matrix). 57) If L = Lij , is an n-dimensional matrix, then the random vector X = + L is normally distributed with mean and covariance C = LL† , † ≡ matrix transpose. 59) 20 CHAPTER 1 . Pricing theory Here we have used E i = 0 and E i j = ij , where ij is Kronecker’s delta, with value 1 if i = j and zero otherwise.
