### Show that the solution to a stochastic differential equation is satisfied by the following

I am confused on how to get from the first statement to the second. Getting from the second statement to the third would just a simple case of substituting s=0. The solution sheet says to use ...

### Stochastic calculus for continuous time Markov chains

I have absolved a course on stochastic analysis, i.e. integrals with respect to the brownian motion. Now I know that there is a theory of stochastic calculus for diskrete matringales, however I was ...

### Find E(X^-1) for stochastic variable

Let $X$ be a stochastic variable with density function: $f(x)=x\exp(-x)$ if $x>0$ and $0$ otherwise. Show that $E(X^{-1} )=1$. I believe I have to integrate but is it simple $x\exp(-x)$ I ...

### Check process is a martingale

I have such stochastic process with which I struggle all day, finally I found 2 mistakes, however answer is still unsatisfying. $$X_t = atW_t^2 - \int_0^t(W_s^2+s)ds,$$ I need to check if it is a ...

### Two Ito processes : are they a 2-dim Brownian motion?

I am stuck with the following problem : I have a Brownian motion $B_t$ and an Ito process $$X_t:=\int_0^t sgn(B_s)\ d B_s,$$ where $sgn(x)=1$ when $x \geq 0$ and $sgn(x)=-1$ when $x<0$. I have ...

### Use Ito's Formula to prove following identity

Again, I am not sure how the following works; Could someone please give me an almost stupidly detailed explanation of why/what is happening in the part below. First, the question itself; Q. $B_t$ ...

### What process does this SDE weakly converge to?

So my question is motivated by the following: Note that the ODE $$dy_t = 2sgn(y_t)\sqrt{|y_t|}$$ $$y_0 = 0$$$$has no unique solution. However, consider the SDE as follows:$$ dy_t = 2sgn(y_t)\sqrt{...

### Versions of Tanaka's SDE

Consider the following versions: $$dX_t=x_0+sgn(X_t)dW_t \tag1$$ $$dX_t=x_0+1_{(0,+\infty)}(X_t)dW_t \tag2$$ $$dX_t=x_0+1_{(-\infty,0]}(X_t)dW_t \tag3$$ SDE (1) is a classical example of SDE with ...

### Application of the Clark-Ocone's Formula to $\mathbb{1}_{S_t > K}$

At page 291 of Nonlinear Option Pricing by Julien Guyon and Pierre Henry-Labordère, the Clark-Ocone's Formula is applied to $\mathbb{1}_{S_t > K}$. I do not get how to get from the second to the ...

I'm teaching myself Malliavin calculus and Skorohod integrals and with this kind of math I find myself following the logic through but lacking solid intuition about what is going on. In particular ...

### Ito formula for a function of class $C^1$

Can the Ito formula be applied with a $C^1$ function if the second order terms vanish ? For example, let $g(t)$ be a function of class $C^1$ and define $F(x,t)=xg(t)$ which is also of class $C^1$. ...

### Definition of stochastic integral, square integrable function

Hello I have a question about Stochastic integral. Let $X=(X_{t})_{t \geq0}$ be a Brownian motion started at $0$. I know the following fact: Let $(\varphi(t))_{t\geq0}$ be a progressively measurable ...
### Why is the stochastic integral $\int_0^t \nabla u(B_s)\cdot dB_s$ a local martingale?
I have to identify the Fourier transform, defined as $\widehat f(x)=\displaystyle \int_{\mathbb R} e^{-ixy}f(y) dy$ As a task, I have to calculate the the fourier transform of \$g(x)= \frac{32}{1875}...
