### Process with negative quadratic variation

Today seems to be question day for me, sorry. The complex process $$dX = i\sigma dW$$ where $i = \sqrt{-1}$ and $dW$ is a standard (real-valued) Brownian motion will have a negative variance ...

### How to understand nonrandom/random process in Shreve book? [closed]

I have been reading Chapter 4 of Shreve's Stochastic Calculus for Finance II. It is easy to understand the simple process, $\Delta(t)$, defined on Page 126, which is just a constant inside a given ...

### How do one solve $\int_t^T \exp[\int_0^u-( r-\delta_s)ds] dW_u$? Double integral with general deterministic function $\delta(t)$

How do one solve $\int_t^T \exp[\int_0^u-\left( r-\delta_s\right)ds] dW_u$ ? $\delta(t)$ is a general deterministic function. $r$ is constant.

### Derivation using Ito's Lemma of price process

Define $q(t)$ as the log price minus a linear trend $$q(t) = \ln P(t) - \mu t$$ Assume the log price process = Equation 1: $$dq(t) = - \Theta q(t) dt + \sigma dW(t)$$ Can you show that the ...
I have a question about the solution of the Black-Scholes PDE for the European call option when I read the book Stochastic Calculus for Finance II of Steven E.Shreve. Let $c(t,x)$ be the value of the ...
Let $\gamma$ be the expected return, in terms of its exponential growth rate, of the market asset. If we set $\gamma=\mu-\sigma^2/2$ as explained by the Doléans-Dade exponential, then the expected ...
