where a(t) and a(t) are processes adapted to the filtration F(t) , t = 0, associated with the Brownian motion W(t) , t =0. In this exercise, we show that S(t) must be given by formula (4.4.26) (i.e., that formula provides the only solution to the stochastic differential equation (4.10.2)) . In the process, we provide a method for solving this equation.

(i) Using (4.10.2) and the lt-Doeblin formula, compute d log S(t) . Simplify so that you have a formula for d log S(t) that does not involve S(t) .

(ii) Integrate the formula you obtained in (i) , and then exponentiate the answer to obtain (4.4.26) .
