However, we can present the basic ideas using the tools already developed. Consider the problem of pricing a European call option.

3 Puts and Calls A European call option pays S(T )−K at date T if S(T ) > K and 0 otherwise. Again letting 1 if S(T ) > K , x= 0 otherwise , the payoff of the call can be written as xS(T ) − xK. This is equivalent to one share digital minus K digitals, with the digitals paying in the event that S(T ) > K. The share digital is worth e−qT S(0) N(d1 ) at date 0 and each digital is worth e−rT √ N(d2 ). 4) for d1 and d2 imply d2 = d1 − σ T . 4) and d2 = d1 − σ T . 5) A European put option pays K − S(T ) at date T if S(T ) < K and 0 otherwise.

The partial derivatives of g will generally depend on t, X(t) and Y (t) just as g does. 6 Examples of Itˆ o’s Formula The following are the applications of Itˆ o’s formula that will be used most frequently in the book. They follow from the boxed formula at the end of the previous section by taking g(x, y) = xy or g(x, y) = y/x or g(x) = ex or g(x) = log x.
