This is an integral equation, but if we take the t-derivative we obtain the ODE Solving this standard equation gives us the answer E [effw(t)]= E [Z(t)]= m(t) = eff2'I2. It is natural to ask whether one can "compute" (in some sense) the value of a stochastic integral. This is a fairly vague question, but regardless of how it is interpreted, the answer is generally no. There are just a few examples where the stochastic integral can be computed in a fairly explicit way. Here is the most famous one.

Q~ by /r In this way we may interpret 91,. . , q~ as a probability distribution on S1 by setting Q(w,) = qi, and we can reformulate our previous result. 4 The market is arbitrage free if and only i f there exists a probability dzstribution Q on 0 and a real constant P such that Such a measure, or probability distribution Q is called a martingale measure, or a risk neutral distribution, or a risk adjusted distribution. ' A natural question is now whether there exists a natural economic inteiprktation of the factor p above.

These assets could in principle be almost anything, like bonds, stocks, options or whatever financial instrument that is traded on a liquid market. The market only exists at the two points in time t = 0 and t = 1, and the price per unit of asset No. i at time t will be denoted by St. e. [ st = " ] SF *= The randomness in the system is modeled by assuming that we hpve sample space R = { w l ,. . ,W M )and that the probabilities P ( w 4 , 1 are all strictly positive. The price vector So is assumed to be deterministic and known to us, but the price vector at time t = 1 depends upon the outcome w E R, and S:(wj) denotes the price per unit of asset No.
