Example text

To see that D is a σ-field, note that ∅ ∩ {τ ≤ t} = ∅ ∈ It and Ω ∩ {τ ≤ t} = {τ ≤ t} ∈ It , so ∅, Ω ∈ D. Furthermore, if C ∈ D, then (Ω \ C) ∩ {τ ≤ t} = {τ ≤ t} \ (C ∩ {τ ≤ t}) ∈ It , so Ω \ C ∈ D. 7. It remains to show that D2 ⊂ It . 3 Default indicator process 53 since B ∩ {τ ≤ t} ∈ D1 ⊂ It and {t < τ} ∈ σ(I(t)) ⊂ It . So D2 ⊂ It , and this concludes the proof of the first claim. (ii) We have to show that {t < τ} has only trivial subsets within It , that is, ∅ and {t < τ} are the only elements of It among the subsets of {t < τ}.

We introduce two families of sets D1 = {A ∩ {τ ≤ t} : A ∈ σ(τ)} , D2 = {B ∪ {t < τ} : B ∈ σ(τ)} . As we know, D2 consists of the complements of sets in D1 . Vice versa, take an element B ∪ {t < τ} of D2 , with B ∈ σ(τ), and consider its complement Ω \ (B ∪ {t < τ}) = (Ω \ B) ∩ {τ ≤ t} to see that it belongs to D1 . ) Thus, assertion (i) reads It = D1 ∪ D2 . To prove this, first we show that the union D1 ∪ D2 is a σ-field. To see that ∅ ∈ D1 take A = ∅, and to see that Ω ∈ D2 take B = Ω. Next, D1 ∪ D2 is closed under complements (as noted above).

4 Barrier model all we need is to notice that 1 − N(a) = N(−a) to get e−rT EQ (F1{τ>T } ) = Fe−rT N(−d1 ) − L2α N(d2 ) . The other term, related to bankruptcy caused by hitting the barrier, is equal to e−rT EQ (Fe(r−γ)(T −τ) 1{τ≤T } ) = Fe−γT EQ (e(γ−r)τ 1{τ≤T } ) = V(0)LEQ (e(γ−r)τ 1{τ≤T } ), so we need to prove that EQ (e(γ−r)τ 1{τ≤T } ) = L−1 N(d3 ) + L2α+1 N(d4 ). 9) We are going to verify this equality in the case when γ r + 12 σ2 . 11. 27, which we write as Q(τ ≤ t) = N −a − b1 t −a − b2 t + L2α N , √ √ t t with constants 1 ln L, σ 1 1 r − γ − σ2 , b1 = −b2 = σ 2 a=− where a > 0 since L < 1.
