126) at time t, which leaves us with only the drift term in t (to order t), since the Wiener term is Markovian. 142) The last equality is due to the martingale property of ft . 141) xT = x , is satisfied. The terminal condition follows simply because f x t = T = ET with xT = x imposed when t = T . 13 is a special case of the Feynman–Kac result. 141) to n dimensions is also readily obtained by using Itˆo’s lemma in n dimensions. Problems Problem 1. Consider the stochastic processes gt and ht defined earlier.

Example. Chooser basket options on two stocks. Consider a basket of two stocks with prices St1 (for stock 1) and St2 (for stock 2) modeled as before with constants 1 , 2 , , 1 , 2 . 189) where S01 , S02 are initially known stock prices at current time t = 0. 190) 10 This drift restriction is further clarified later in the chapter where we discuss the asset-pricing theorem in continuous time. 44 CHAPTER 1 .
