This implies that the return for the first asset is the same no matter which state of the world is realized.

Down = 1 − Qup . 16 Remember that Q Once this is done, the Qup can be used to calculate the current arbitrage-free value of the call option. 67) “ties” two (arbitrage-free) values of the call option at any time t + to the (arbitrage-free) value of the option as of time t. The Qup is known at this point. In order to make the equaup tion usable, we need the two values and Ct+ and down . Given these, we can calculate the value of Ct+ the call option Ct at time t. 2 shows the multiplicative lattice for the option price Ct .

3 The set A is called the domain, and the set B is called the range of f . 1 values of ω. Plot of the function f (x, ω) for two different 36 3. REVIEW OF DETERMINISTIC CALCULUS When x represents time, we can interpret f (x, ω1 ) and f (x, ω2 ) as two different trajectories that depend on different states of the world. Hence, if ω represents the underlying randomness, the function f (x, ω) can be called a random function. Another name for random functions is stochastic processes. With stochastic processes, x will represent time, and we often limit our attention to the set x ≥ 0.
