FINM345/STAT390 Stochastic Calculus – Hanson – Autumn 2009 Lecture 4 Homework: Stochastic Jump and Jump-Diffusion Processes (Due by Lecture 5 in Chalk FINM345 Assignment Submenu) { Note dropping the Digital Dropbox } You must show your work, code and/or worksheet for full credit. There are 10 points per question if correct answer. 1. Inverse Problem for Poisson Integral. Find X ( t ) = F ( P ( t )) if Z t 0 X ( s ) dP ( s ) = e cP ( t ) ln( aP ( t ) + b ) - ln( b ) , (1) where a , b and c are real constants. 2. Solution to a Jump SDE. Solve the following jump SDE for X ( t ), E[ X ( t )], and Var[ X ( t )], dX ( t ) = aX 2 ( t ) dt - bX 2 ( t ) 1 + bX ( t ) dP ( t ) , (2) where a < 0, b > 0 and c > 0 are constants such that E[ P ( t )] = ct , while X (0) = x 0 > 0, with probability one. { Hint: seek a transformation Y ( t ) = F ( X ( t )) for some F such that Y ( t ) satisfies a constant coefficient SDE. The answer may be left as a Poisson distribution sum. } 3. Solution to another Jump SDE. . Solve the following Poisson jump SDE for X ( t ) and E[ X ( t )]: dX ( t ) = a p X ( t ) dt

( Hint: Find a power transformation to convert the SDE to a constant coecient SDE. ) 4. For Jump-Diusion SDE, Find Coecients Transformable to Constant Co-ecient SDE. Show that the (It o) jump-diusion SDE for X ( t ), dX ( t ) = f ( X ( t )) dt + bX a ( t ) dW ( t ) + h ( X ( t )) dP ( t ) , (3) can be transformed by Y ( t ) = F ( X ( t )) to a constant coecient SDE , where b and a 6 = 1 are real constants, and X (0) = x &gt; 0, with probability one. In a proper answer, derive the power forms of f ( X ( t )) and h ( X ( t )) from the constant coecient SDE conditions. Also, what is the answer when a = 1? 1...
