we can calculate the probability that the corresponding

In Markov processes changes in successive periods

of time are independent

This means that variances are additive

Standard deviations are not additive

standard deviation is 10 per year.

We consider a variable z whose value changes

continuously

Define (,v) as a normal distribution with mean

and variance v

The change in a small interval of time t is z

The variable follows a Wiener process if

z= t where is (0,1)

periods of time are independent

Mean of [z (T ) z (0)] is 0

Variance of [z (T ) z (0)] is T

Standard deviation of [z (T ) z (0)] is T

Taking Limits . . .

dz = dt

What does an expression involving dz and dt

mean?

It should be interpreted as meaning that the

corresponding expression involving z and t is

true in the limit as t tends to zero

In this respect, stochastic calculus is analogous to

ordinary calculus

distribution of (40,100) at the end of the year

If we assume the stochastic process is Markov with no

drift then the process is

dS = 10dz

If the stock price were expected to grow by $8 on average

during the year, so that the year-end distribution is

f(48,100), the process would be

dS = 8dt + 10dz

17

Why

b t

?(1)

(xT-x0)depend on T and not on the number of

steps.

1.Divide time up into n discrete periods of

length t, n=T/t. In each period the

variable x either moves up or down by an

amount h with the probabilities of p and q

respectively.

18

Why

b t

?(2)

E(x)=(p-q) h

E[(x)2]= p(h)2+q(-h)2

So, the variance of x is:

E[(x)2]-[E(x)]2=[1-(p-q)2](h)2

3. Since the successive steps of the random walk are

independent, the cumulated change(xT-x0)is a binomial

random walk with mean:

n(p-q) h=T(p-q) h/ t

and variance:

n[1-(p-q)2](h)2= T [1-(p-q)2](h)2 / t

19

Why b

0.0167 per month. A variance of 1.0 per year

implies a variance of 0.0833 per month, so

that the standard deviation in monthly terms

is 0.2887.

In the long run, the trend is the dominant

determinant of Brownian Motion, whereas

in the short run, the volatility of the process

dominates.

Not Appropriate for Stocks

percentage change in a short period of time remains

constant, not its expected absolute change in a short

period of time

size of future stock price movements is proportional

to the level of the stock price
