Abstract

In this chapter we present some of the fundamental ideas of arbitrage pricing in continuous time, illustrating Black-Scholes theory from a point of view that is, as far as possible, elementary and close to the original ideas in the papers by Merton [250], Black and Scholes [49]. In Chapter 10 the topic will be treated in a more general fashion, fully exploiting martingale and PDEs theories.
