Jump Processes Diffusion processes are continuous. In order to include jumps we use Poisson processes. Define q(t) such that q(0) = 0 and is constant until a Poisson event occurs. When there is a Poisson event value of q increases by 1. Zvi Wiener Cont. Time. Fin - 2 13

Jump Processes In its simplest form, a Poisson process with a constant intensity parameter is: dq(t) = 1 with probability dt = 0 with probability 1 - dt at every moment in time, where dq(t) is the instantaneous change in q in moment t. Zvi Wiener Cont. Time. Fin - 2 14

A Random Variable with Compact Support A random variable has compact support if the domain over which the random variable has positive probability measure is a compact set.

Default Event d. X = dt + d. W - Xdq mean continuous changes dt continuous variance 2 dt occasional default (probability dt) A general model of default allows a spectrum of levels (see D. Duffie). Zvi Wiener Cont. Time. Fin - 2 20

Jump Diffusion For a real valued function f(X) the change in function value conditional on the occurrence of an event is f(X+ )-f(X). Therefore the expected change in function is: dt E[f(X+ )-f(X)] + (1 - dt) [0] = E[f(X+ )-f(X)]dt Zvi Wiener Cont. Time. Fin - 2 21

Residual Risk In financial models, we often assume that residual risk is diversifiable. That is, no investor cares about this risk in the pricing of securities. We also assume that the timing of the jumps and the level of X are independent of each other. However, we may allow to depend on X or follow its own stochastic process. Zvi Wiener Cont. Time.

Financial Applications B r. V = XVx+X+0. 5 2 X 2 Vxx there are several ways to solve it. One can guess that doubling X will double the price V. If V is proportional to X, then V = X, Vx= , and Vxx=0, then the equation becomes r X= X +X = 1/(r- ) V(X) = X/(r- ) Zvi Wiener Cont. Time. Fin - 2 32

Financial Applications C Modify example B to provide for a sudden possible drop to zero in the value of V. If a Poisson event occurs, one gives up V in exchange for nothing.

Financial Applications C 6. PDE: r. V = XVx + 0. 5 2 X 2 Vxx - V + X This is the same equation as in B, but with (r+ ) instead of r. Note that one can NOT solve it as a standard Cauchy problem because of a singularity at the origin (X=0). Zvi Wiener Cont. Time. Fin - 2 37

Financial Applications C V = X/(r + - ) We discount the cash flow at a higher rate (r + ) to compensate for the probability of full default. Alternatively we can see this as an adjustment of the growth rate to ( - ) and discount at the risk free rate. ( - ) is the certainty-equivalent growth rate. Zvi Wiener Cont. Time. Fin - 2 38

Financial Applications D Suppose X follows geometric Brownian motion, and an independent Poisson process determines the timing of cash payments equal to the contemporaneous value of X.
