3. 7 Proof. 125) where the remainder has an expectation and variance converging to zero as fast as t 2 in the limit t → 0. 126) ks00, JS87]. 34 CHAPTER 1 . 123). 123), as required. 122). Note: Itˆo’s formula is rather simple to remember if one just takes the Taylor expansion of the infinitesimal change df up to second order in dx and up to first order in the time increment dt and then inserts the stochastic expression for dx and replaces dx 2 by b x t 2 dt. , a x t = x x t , b x t = x x t , written in terms involving the lognormal drift and volatility functions for the random variable x.

12 = C12 / 1 2 . 64) Conditional and marginal densities of the bivariate distribution are readily obtained by integrating over one of the variables in the foregoing joint density (see Problem 3). For multivariate normal distributions one has the following general result, which we state without proof. Proposition. Consider the random vector X ∈ X2 ∈ n−m with 1 ≤ m < n, n ≥ 2. 3 Multivariate Continuous Distributions: Basic Tools 21 with nonzero determinant C22 = 0, where C11 and C22 are m × m and n − m × n − m covariance matrices of X1 and X2 , respectively, and C12 = C†21 is the m × n − m crosscovariance matrix of the two subspace vectors.

48) x where d˜ is the Jacobian matrix of the invertible transformation x → x˜ . The notation M dx refers to the determinant of a matrix M. 49) The shorthand notation x ∼ Nn C is also used to denote the values of an n-dimensional random vector with components x1 xn that are obtained by sampling with distribution px C . , is such that the inner product x Cx ≡ x · Cx > 0 for all real vectors x, and Cij = Cji . 53) for all i j = 1 n. , ii = 1. As well, they obey the inequality ij ≤ 1 (see Problem 1 of this section).
