(b) Define Y t = αt + βW t , where α and β are constants. Write the probability density function of Y t . (c) If W t 1 = - π , write the (conditional) probability density function of W t 2 . 3. Let the price at time t of RIM stock be given by S t = S 0 exp { μt + σW t } , where μ and σ are constants. (a) Find the SDE for which S t is a solution. If σ = S 0 = 1 , for which value(s) of μ is t 7→ E [ S t ] a constant function.
