### LECTURE 12: STOCHASTIC DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS, …

www.stat.uchicago.edu

stochastic di erential equations (2). Are there always solutions to stochastic di erential equations of the form (1)? No! In fact, existence of solutions for all time t 0 is not guaranteed even for ordinary di erential equations (that is, di erential equations with no random terms). It is important to understand why this is so.

The stochastic process (1) followed by the stock price is equivalent to the one assumed in the derivation of Black and Scholes (1973). This ensures that the standard time-dependent volatility version of the Black-Scholes formula (as derived in section 8.6 of Wilmott (1998) for example) may be retrieved in the limit · ! 0.
