### Some Kind of Generalized Brownian Bridge

Let $\displaystyle X(t) = \int_0^t f(s)dB(s)$ where $B(t)$ is a Brownian motion and $f(t)\in L^2[0,1]$. What is a simple representation for $Y(t):=(X(t)|X(1))$ in terms of $B(t)$? Note, I am not ...

### $tB_t$ Integral representation, Brownian Motion

I never learned stochastic differential equations, and so am trying to do some self study. I've arrive at this question: $tB_t\sim N(0,t^3)$? $B_t$ is standard brownian motion. $B_t\sim N(0,t)$, so ...

### Integral representation $B_T^3$

I have to find a $F_t$ such that $B_T^3=E[B_T^3]+\int_0^T F_t dB_t$. I have shown by ito formula that $B_T^3=\int_0^T 3 B_s^2 dB_s+\int_0^T 3 B_s ds$. Could you please help me?

### The Stratonovich Integral and its meaning as the limit in mean square of a sum?

I am studying the Stratonovich Integral and on wikipedia, Stratonovich Integral, it states that the integral, for a process $X:[0,T] \times\Omega \to \mathbb{R}$, as: $$\int_0^T X_t \circ dW_t$$ ...

### Stochastic integral estimate

I'm trying to derive the estimate $$E\left[\left|\int_{0}^{t}h_r\,dB_r\right|^4\right] \leq 3C^4t^2,$$ where $h_r$ is continuous, adapted (to the natural Brownian filtration up to time $t$) and ...

### Ito stochastic integral vs Skorohod integral

I'm new in stochastic calculus and I'm confused about specific, but interesting topic. Skorohod integral is an extension of Ito integral for non-adapted processes, but how should I think about this ...

### Application of Stochastic Calculus to Interest Rate Model (Ito's Formula)

Above is my question. Now, the setting is of mathematical finance, but the part that I'm stuck on isn't directly related to finance, but stochastic calculus (hence posting on this site). We have the ...

### Stochastic control HJB equation

I am trying to solve this optimal control problem : $V(x,t) = inf( E[\int_{0}^{1}(x(t)^2 - \frac{1}{2}u^2(t))dt + x(1)^2])$ subject to $dx(t) = u(t)dW_t$ $x(0) = x_0 \in R$ $u(t) \in [-1,1]$ ...

### Finding a solution to the SDE of $dX_t = -2 (1-t)^{-1}X_tdt + \sqrt{2t(1-t)} dW_t$.

I am trying to find the solutions to the SDE: The solution of the following SDE $$dX_t = -2 \frac{X_t}{1-t} dt + \sqrt{2t(1-t)} dW_t, \quad X_0 = 0$$ where $W_t$ is a Wiener process. I know that ...

### How to find the mean and variance of a stochastic integral?

If $B(t)$ is a standard Brownian motion, let $Z(t)= \int_{0}^{t} s^2 dB(s)$. I want to find the mean and variance of Z(t). It is given that $Z(t)$ is Gaussian process. My approach for finding the ...

### Finding the mean of $X_t = \int_0^t sW_sdW_s$

For the stochastic integral, where $W_t$ is a Wiener process, I am trying to find the mean of $X_t = \int_0^t sW_sdW_s$. I have read before that any stochastic integral with $dWt$ has mean zero, but I ...

One of my finance professors claims that the following is a meaningful SDE. $$dX_t = \delta_t\mu X_tdt + \delta_t\sigma X_tdW_t$$ Here $W$ is BM and $\mu$ and $\sigma$ are positive real constants. $(... 1answer 36 views ### Clarification on Stochastic Exponential Consider a$d$-dimensional Brownian motion$B=\left(B_1,...,B_d\right)$whose components are independent and let$A$be a$d\times d$squared matrix such that$\sum_{i=1}^dA_{ii}^2=1$. Define the$W=...
I am fairly new to stochastic calculus and am having problems solving this equation.. $$X(t)=\oint_0^TL(t)(\mu \, dt + \sigma \, dW_t)$$ Now, here $L(t)$ is a constant $k$. And I have to find $X(t)$...
