Homework 4 Solutions March 11, 2009 Problem 1. Using Ito’s formula on XX T d( XX T ) = (d X ) X T + X d X T + d X (d X ) T = ( AX d t + σ d B ) X T + X ( X T A T d t + d B T σ T ) + σ d B d B T σ T = AXX T d t + σ d BX T + XX T A T d t + d B T σ T + σσ T d t where we’ve used d B d B T = I d t 1 .

Starting at some time t 0 instead of zero, X ( t ) = e A ( t t 0 ) X ( t 0 ) + integraldisplay t t 0 e A ( t s ) σ d B ( s ) We now want to take the limit of X ( t ) as t 0 → -∞ . Using the fact that all of A ’s eigenvalues have negative real parts, we can see from expressing A in Jordan canonical form that lim t 0 →−∞ e A ( t t 0 ) X ( t 0 ) = 0 Thus X e ( t ) = integraldisplay t −∞ e A ( t s ) σ d B ( s ) 1 C ( t ) is the second order moment of X ( t ) not the variance of X ( t ) as stated in the original problem 1

Note that E [ X e ( t )] = 0 and that X e ( t ) doesn’t depend on the starting point x . Direct calculation shows that C e ( t ) = E [ X e ( t ) X e ( t ) T ] = E bracketleftbigg ( integraldisplay t −∞ e A ( t s ) σ d B ( s ))( integraldisplay t −∞ e A ( t s ) σ d B ( s )) T bracketrightbigg = integraldisplay t −∞ e A ( t s ) σσ T e A T ( t s ) d s Making the substitution t - s = s , we see C e ( t ) = integraldisplay 0 e As σσ T e A T s d s Notice that C e ( t ) is independent of t as it should be since it is the covariance of the equilibrium process. Since it is independent of t then clearly d C e ( t ) d t = 0 and thus it follows that C e ( t ) solves the following Lyapunov equation AC e + C e A T + σσ T = 0 This equation would be very difficult to solve without knowing the OU process was behind this. The lag - τ autocovariance of X e ( t ) is by definition C e ( τ ) = E [ X e ( t ) X e ( t + τ ) T ] = E bracketleftBigg parenleftbiggintegraldisplay t −∞ e A ( t s ) σ d B ( s ) parenrightbiggparenleftbiggintegraldisplay t −∞ e A ( t s ) σ d B ( s ) + integraldisplay t + τ t e A ( t + τ s ) σ d B ( s ) parenrightbigg T bracketrightBigg = C e e A T τ by independent increments of Brownian motion.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
