comment Existence of a hedging portfolio and martingale property
ok, so the supermartingale is the value process corresponding to an american option. if i understand your question, then at a theoretical level, the answer is yes: doob-meyer decomposition to split the supermartingale into a martingale and decreasing process, and then martingale representation to get a hedging strategy for the martingale part.

comment Existence of a hedging portfolio and martingale property
what do you mean by a super martingale price process?

comment Difference betweem martingale property and adapted filteration
Also, this is something I think about from time to time. You can definite martingality intrinsically, by taking the filtration to be the natural one generated by $X$. Does this mean that martingality is an intrinsic property?

comment Difference betweem martingale property and adapted filteration
Continuity and measurability are defined slightly differently than what you said. For a continuous function, inverse image of an open set is open, and similarly with measurable. If you unpack the $\epsilon-\delta$ definition of continuity, you'll see that this is what it's logically equivalent to.

comment Distribution of Brownian Bridge
The starting point doesn't matter. You're conditioning on the Brownian Motion being $a$ at time $T_1$, so there's no variance there. Just do the calculation on $[0, T_2 - T_1]$.

comment unique equivalent martingale measure in incomplete markets
yeah. you apply $f(x)$ pointwise.

yeah, thanks. this was a while ago, i have to try and understand what i wrote.

comment How can the Wiener process be nowhere differentiable but still continuous?
Continuity is a weaker property than differentiability.

comment How do you calibrate a poisson arrival rate process?
Don't you know $\delta$? You have to estimate $A$, where $A \leq 1$?

comment backward Kolmogorov equations - Markov properties
Answer below looks correct to me. Also, it doesn't make sense to say that $a$ and $b$ are ito-integrable, as they're just real-valued functions.

comment Definition of orthogonality and independence for a stochastic processes
I've spent quality time with all of these. Williams: Probability w/ Martingales, Oksendahl, Karatzas/Shreve, Protter: Stochastic Integration, Revuz/Yor: Continuous Martingales and BM, Kallenberg: Foundations of Modern Probability

I'm not sure where I learned them, that's just how I remember them. I think they're both pretty standard.

Yeah if you had the filtration defined already you would do that.

you can also use bitbucket for a free private repository. at github you only get public for free.

comment Wiener process proof
The question could use a little rewording. You should define what "eventually equates" means. Anyway, I think the point is that the drift term decays at a faster rate than the volatility.

comment The concept of an incomplete market
I don't remember the exact source, but I think Duffie wrote a nice paper (maybe the original one?) on Arrow-Debreu securities and equilibria in an incomplete market.

comment How to choose a risk-neutral measure when the market is incomplete?
There won't be a non-degenerate complete stochastic volatility model. An informal way of thinking about it is that the space of randomness is two dimensional (two BM's driving things), and the space of attainable claims is just one-d

comment Under an EMM, does there necessarily exist a replicating portfolio?
Complete market is the same as replication, no?
