### Ornstein-Uhlnbeck Process with Jumps

I am trying to simulate an OU Process (Vasicek version) with jumps and I would like to derive the drift and diffusion term when jumps are incorporated, which will enable me to perform monte carlo ...

### Cost of Hedging and Ito Calculus

In Dynamic Hedging by N. Taleb, at pag. 198, is presented a stop loss strategy that potentially could replicate an option. In particular, suppose one sells a call on an underlying and hedge it with a ...

### Volatility of the product of two correlated asset following a log normal distribution [duplicate]

I am trying to solve the problem: Given two assets X and Y that follow a log normal distribution with volatility $\sigma_1$ and $\sigma_2$ respectively and with correlation $\rho$, what is the ...

### How calculate expectation and variation of stochastic integral Based on Heston model?

I was calculated Heston volatility model. But I think it is wrong. $dS_t = \mu dt + \sqrt V_t dW_t^s$ $dV_t = k(\theta - V_t)dt + \sigma \sqrt V_t dW_t^v$. $dW^s_t dW^v_t = \rho dt$ take integral to ...

### Is the time derivative of asset returns expressible as an SDE?

Consider the following SDE for $(S_t)_{t\geq 0}$ under $\mathbb{Q}$, $$\mathop{dS_t}=S_t\left(r\mathop{dt}+\sigma(t,S_t)\mathop{dW_t}\right),$$ which (in Langevin form) may ...

### The solution of SDE after Itô lemma for diffusion process [closed]

Consider the one-dimensional diffusion process $dX_t = \mu_tdt + \sigma_tdB_t$ and function $f : \mathbb{R} \to \mathbb{R}$, which is twice differentiable. Here we have another SDE by using Itô lemma ...

### Conditional Expectation of Integral of Squared Brownian Motion - PDE Approach

I am looking to compute the following using Ito's formula. $$u(t,\beta_t) = \mathbb{E}(\int_t^T\beta_s^2ds|\beta_t)$$ Knowing the properties of brownian motion, it is rather easy to show that the ...

### Deriving the stochastic process for a dividend-yielding stock (under Black-Scholes assumptions)

In order to derive the Black-Scholes equation for a stock $S(t)$ yielding dividends at the continuous rate $d$ $$S(t) = S_0 e^{(\mu - d - \frac{\sigma^2}{2})t + \sigma \sqrt{t} N(0,1)} \text{,}$$ M. ...

### Integral of brownian motion wrt. time over [t;T]

From the post Integral of Brownian motion w.r.t. time we have an argument for $$\int_0^t W_sds \sim N\left(0,\frac{1}{3}t^3\right).$$ However, how does this generalise for the interval $[t;T]$? I.e. ...

### Show that the solution to a SDE is strong

I have the following SDE $$dX_t = - \frac{1}{1+t}X_t dt + \frac{1}{1+t}dB_t$$ that has the solution: \begin{aligned} X_t = \frac{X_0 + B_t}{1+t} = \frac{...

### Obtaining the dynamics of the Vasicek model using Itô

Consider the following expression for the short-term interest rate $$r_t=r_0 e^{\beta t}+\frac{b}{\beta}\left(e^{\beta t}-1\right)+\sigma e^{\beta t}\int_0^te^{-\beta s}dW_s \tag{1},$$ which is ...

### Ito's lemma for option pricing with Levy-alpha stable drift

Consider $$dS=\omega\left(\Lambda-S\right)dt+\sigma_S S dW_t,$$ such that such that $W_t$ is a Wiener process, $\sigma_S$ is constant, $\omega: t\rightarrow\mathbb{R}$ represents anticipated drift and ...

### Ito's Lemma in option pricing for a stock satisfying $dS=\frac{P-S}{\omega}dt+SdW_t$

Suppose a stock follows the stochastic differential equation $$dS=\frac{P-S}{\omega}dt+SdW_t,$$ such that $W_t$ is a wiener process, $\omega\in\mathbb{R}^+$, and $P_t,S_t\in\mathbb{R}$. If the value ...

### Question on Ito's lemma involving $\mathrm{d}W(t)$

I am new to Ito-calculus, so please forgive me if the question is stupid. Let $W(t)$ be a Brownian-Motion and $f(W(t))=W(t)^2$. If I want to calculate the differential $\mathrm{d}f(W(t))$, Ito's lemma ...
