ACTL3004: Weeks 9-10 Measure Theory Radon-Nikodym Derivative Change of Measure Eg. Consider the two step random walk tree. With each possible path we can attach a P probability π : Path P-Probability 0,1,2 p 1 p 2 π 1 0,1,0 p 1 ( 1 - p 2 ) π 2 0,-1,0 ( 1 - p 1 ) p 3 π 3 0,-1,-2 ( 1 - p 1 ) ( 1 - p 3 ) π 4 If we were to define another measure Q on this process, we can set Path Q-Probability 0,1,2 q 1 q 2 π 0 1 0,1,0 q 1 ( 1 - q 2 ) π 0 2 0,-1,0 ( 1 - q 1 ) q 3 π 0 3 0,-1,-2 ( 1 - q 1 ) ( 1 - q 3 ) π 0 4 2 / 43
ACTL3004: Weeks 9-10 Measure Theory Radon-Nikodym Derivative we can encode the differences between the two measures by the ratios π 0 i π i We call this dQ dP the "Radon Nikodym derivative" of Q with respect to P, up to time 2. Using dQ dP , we can immediately derive Q from P. The only concern is if with p or q is zero or one. 3 / 43

ACTL3004: Weeks 9-10 Measure Theory Equivalent Measures Equivalent Measures The probability measure Q is sometimes called an equivalent martingale measure for the real-world probability measure P . Definition: Two measures P and Q are equivalent if: P ( A ) > 0 ⇐⇒ Q ( A ) > 0 for any outcome A . In words, this means that all the universe of outcomes for both measures are the same. 4 / 43
ACTL3004: Weeks 9-10 Measure Theory Expectations and the Radon-Nikodym Derivative Expectations and dQ dP The Radon Nikodym derivative acts in a very natural way when we consider expectations. We know that E P [ X ] = X i π i x i . So, E Q [ X ] = X i π 0 i x i = X i π i π 0 i π i x i = E P dQ dP X 5 / 43

ACTL3004: Weeks 9-10 Measure Theory Radon-Nikodym as a Process Radon-Nikodym as a Process At the moment we have only defined the Radon Nikodym derivative as a random variable (on maturity T). How about a process? We can do this by defining ζ ( t ) to be the Radon-Nikodym derivative up to time t. In fact, there is another representation: ζ ( t ) = E P dQ dP |F t 7 / 43

ACTL3004: Weeks 9-10 Measure Theory Radon-Nikodym Summary Radon-Nikodym Summary Given P and Q equivalent measures and a time horizon T, we can define a random variable dQ dP defined on the P possible paths, taking positive values, such that E Q [ X ( T )] = E P dQ dP X ( T ) for a claim known at time T. We also have for 0 s t T , E Q [ X ( t ) |F s ] = ζ - 1 ( s ) E P [ ζ ( t ) X ( t ) |F s ] where ζ ( t ) = E P dQ dP |F t . 8 / 43

ACTL3004: Weeks 9-10 Measure Theory Radon-Nikodym Summary Black Scholes Formula Main result that we will want to show: The value of the call option V ( S ( 0 ) , 0 ) is V ( S ( 0 ) , 0 ) = S ( 0 ) Φ ( d 1 ) - Ke - r ( T ) Φ ( d 2 ) d 1 = ln ( S ( t ) / K ) + ( r + 1 2 σ 2 ) ( T ) σ T d 2 = d 1 - σ T and more interestingly it is also V ( S ( 0 ) , 0 ) = E Q h e - rT ( S ( T ) - K ) + i . 9 / 43
