For a Le'vy process Xt on a filtered probability space with probability P*, the LevyKhintchine formula says that there exists a function ty : R -> C such that and for a, or € R and a measure v on R* such that JK min(l, y 2 )v(dy) < +00. The measure v is called the Levy measure of X. We consider the price of a financial asset St modeled as a stochastic process on a filtered probability space with probability P. There exists an equivalent probability P* under which the discounted price is a martingale.

Then the put-call parity implies P(0, t) = Ke~r(T~t}. On the other hand, when S is very large, the put option becomes useless, so we expect P(S, 0 to vanish as 5 -> oo, and by the put-call parity, C « S - Ke~r(T~t}. 26 Chapter 2. The Black-Scholes Equation From a mathematical point of view, it is important to understand that the behavior of P or C for small and large values of 5 need not be imposed in order to have a well-posed problem. We shall see later that along with the Black-Scholes partial differential equation, the terminal condition at T and a very weak growth condition for large values of S (namely, C(5, 0 is negligible compared to e*1^ (5) for any rj > 0) suffice to determine completely the price of the option.

So if we denote by S™ one of the possible values of 5 at stage n, at the next stage we can have 18 Chapter 1. Option Pricing Note that at n = 0, SQ is known; then at n = 1, Si € {wSo, ^-$b}, at {«2So, udSo, d2So} with probability p2, 2p(l — p), (1 — p) 2 , and so forth. At n = 2 the mean value of 5? is n — 2, 52 6 The factor 2 is because the middle state can be reached either by So -> U$Q ->• wdSo or by SQ -> dSo —>• udSo with the same probabiUty p(\ — p). Similarly, the variance of 52 is After N steps, we have the state &• = uN~jdj occurring with probability ( J N ) p N ~ j ( l - p)j, where (}N) = are the binomial factors.
