The main application of martingales will be to recover in an elegant way the previous results on gambling processes of Chap. 2. Before that, let us state many recent applications of stochastic modeling are relying on the notion of martingale. In financial mathematics for example, the notion of martingale is used to characterize the fairness and.

Then we elaborate our martingale representation results, which state that any martingale in the large filtration stopped at the random time can be decomposed into orthogonal local martingales (i.e., local martingales whose product remains a local martingale). This constitutes our first principal contribution, while our second contribution consists in evaluating various defaultable securities.

Conditional expectations (like, e.g., discounted prices in financial applications) are martingales under an appropriate filtration and probability measure. When the information flow arrives in a punctual way, a reasonable assumption is to suppose the latter to have piecewise constant sample paths between the random times of information updates. Providing a way to find and construct piecewise.Enlargement of Filtration ((1) 5.9) If G is a ltration larger than F, it is not true that an F-martingale is a G-martingale. K It o (3) was the rst to look at problems of enlargement of ltrations. From the seventies, Barlow, Jeulin and Yor started a systematic study of the problem of enlargement of ltrations.A strict local martingale is a local martingale that is not a martingale. We investigate how such a process might arise from a true martingale as a result of an enlargement of the filtration and a change of measure. We study and implement a particular type of enlargement, initial expansion of filtration, for stochastic volatility models with.

Semi-martingale is similar to martingale but it's not always a martingale. For example, if you can somehow use the past stock data to predict accurately Google stock price for the first week (and only the first week), it won't be a martingale process. Starting from the second week, the process becomes a martingale again.

Read MoreMartingales are typically used to shortcut a proof or calculation, sometimes in the formulation of models. A discrete-time stochastic process is a martingale with respect to a filtration provided: Note this does not contain nor is contained as a special case of a Markov process. Martingales don't have to be Markov processes and Markov processes don't have to be martingales. The continuous-time.
