How can the Wiener process be nowhere differentiable but still continuous?

Taking a class in financial derivatives (book we use is Tomas Bjork´s Arbitrage theory in continuous time) but can´t understand the exact meaning of how the Wiener process is defined. In the book one ...

Show that $E[B_t|\mathscr{F}_s] = B_s$ for $B_t = W_t^3 - 3 t W_t$

Given prob space $(\Omega, \mathscr{F}, P)$ and a Wiener process $(W_t)_{t \geq 0}$, define filtration $\mathscr{F}_t = \sigma(W_u : u \leq t)$ Let $(B_t)_{t \geq 0}$ where $B_t = W_t^3 - 3tW_t$. ...

Determine $E[W_p W_q W_r]$

Given prob space $(\Omega, \mathscr{F}, P)$ and a Wiener process $(W_t)_{t \geq 0}$, define filtration $\mathscr{F}_t = \sigma(W_u : u \leq t)$ Let 0 < p < q < r. Determine $E[W_p W_q W_r]$. ...

Reflection Principle

Let $(\Omega,\mathcal{F},P)$ be a probability space and $\{W_t ∶ t ≥ 0\}$ be a standard Wiener process. By setting $\tau$ as a stopping time and defining \begin{align} W^*(t)=\Big\{\matrix{W_t\,\,\,\,...

Integration on Wiener Process

How can I show that below equation holds ? $\int\limits_{0}^{t} f \left( s \right)W_s ds = W_t \int\limits_{0}^{t}f \left( s \right)ds - \int\limits_{0}^{t}\int\limits_{0}^{s} f\left( u \right)dudW_s $...

Probability Density Function of a Wiener Process Minimum

Let $W_t$ be a standard Wiener process. Find the probability density function of $m_T = min_{t\in [0,T ]}W_t$. I know that it is based of the concept of the reflection principle, but I wasn't too ...

Discretization of Wiener process

The Wiener process $(W_t)$ is a continuous stochastic process that satisfies the following there conditions: $W_0 = 0$, the increments $\mathrm{d}W_t = W_{t + \mathrm{d}t} - W_t$ are normally ...

How to differentiate a brownian motion?

By definition a wiener process cannot be differentiated. But when we use Ito's lemma on $F = X^2$, where X is wiener process we have total change in $$dF = 2XdX + dt$$ How can we calculate $\...

Algebraic Calculation of Wiener Process [closed]

What is the meaning of "Wiener Process does not support algebraic calculation hence we focused on it's increment"
