We first calculate the prices in the intermediate states. The prices in the three possible intermediate states are given by f u ≈ exp(−r t) ( pu f uu + pm f um + pd f mm ) f m ≈ exp(−r t) ( pu f um + pm f mm + pd f md ) f d ≈ exp(−r t) ( pu f mm + pm f md + pd f dd ) . After these are calculated we can move one step backward to the initial state and calculate the initial price as f ≈ exp(−r t) ( pu f u + pm f m + pd f m ) . 4 Multinomial Trees We can also study multinomial trees, often used as approximations to onedimensional processes that have exposure to many moves in an instant.

More precisely, the density function of the Gamma distribution Gamma(a, b), with parameters a > 0 and b > 0, is given by f Gamma (x; a, b) = ba a−1 exp(−xb), x (a) x > 0. A special case is the Exponential distribution, which one obtains by taking a = 1. 7. The characteristic function is given by φGamma (u; a, b) = (1 − iu/b)−a . 7 Gamma densities The Gamma distribution is the basic example of a distribution with a so-called semi-heavy (right) tail. In general, we say that distributions or their density functions f (x) have semi-heavy tails, if the tails of the density function behave as f (x) ∼ C− |x|ρ− exp(−η− |x|) as x → −∞ f (x) ∼ C+ |x|ρ+ exp(−η+ |x|) as x → +∞, for some ρ− , ρ+ ∈ R and C− , C+ , η− , η+ ≥ 0.

Note that log St − log S0 = μ − σ2 t + σ Wt 2 has a Normal(t (μ − σ 2 /2), σ 2 t) distribution. Thus St itself has a log-normal distribution. This geometric Brownian motion model, and the log-normal distribution which it entails, are the basis for the Black–Scholes model for stock-price dynamics in continuous time. 3. 4 The Black–Scholes Option Pricing Model In the early 1970s, Fischer Black, Myron Scholes and Robert C. Merton made a major breakthrough in the pricing of stock options by developing what has become known as the Black–Scholes model (Black and Scholes, 1973, and Merton, 1973).
