Please write your name on the first actual page of your assignment. ACTSC/STAT 846 students: please indicate on the cover page that you are a graduate student by writing “846”. This assignment will be marked over 50 pts. There are 4 bonus marks. But you can’t get more than 50. Problem 1: [2pts] Covariance Let W = { W t ,t ≥ } be a standard Brownian motion. Let Z = { Z t ,t ≥ } be the Brownian motion with drift μ = 3 and with diffusion coefficient σ = 2 obtained by linear transformation of W . Calculate for t < u the covariance between Z t and W u . Problem 2: [8 pts] Practice of Ito’s Formula Let X t be defined by the SDE (stochastic differential equation): dX t = μdt + σdW t , X = x where W t is a standard Brownian motion....
