Learning outcome

Stochastic differential equation and methods applied in life insurance models.

At the end of the course, the students are expected to be able to

  • Apply theorems on stochastic integrals and stochastic differential equations, including theorems such as: Ito's formula, Feynman-Kac representations, martingale representations, Girsanov's theorem.
  • Determine arbitrage free prices of financial claims including determining partial differential equations for price functions.
  • Deduce if a diffusion model for the market is arbitrage free and if it is complete and to be familiar with the 1st and 2nd fundamental theorems of asset pricing including the determination of martingale measures.
  • Apply concepts for portfolios including self financing and replicating.
  • Apply the theory to determine the Black-Scholes price for a call option.
