2: q(h) = r−b , (1 + r)(h − b) q(b) = h−r . (1 + r)(h − b) 2 Calculation of the state prices q discounted in 0 A state et is characterized by the succession of growth rates, high or low, realized from date 0 up to t. The state price, which is the product of the intermediate prices, is equal to q(h)i q(b)t−i if there were exactly i times h and t − i times b between 0 and t. Consequently, it is independent of the order in which the jumps occurred. 3 The price at t = 0 of an option maturing at T and with a strike price of K The option does not distribute intermediate dividends, and at time T, it pays out [S(1 + h)i (1 + b)T−i − K]+ (we denote α + = max(α, 0)) if there were i high yields between 0 and T.

This point will be clarified when we distinguish between complete and incomplete markets. 2 State prices and Arrow–Debreu prices Let q be a vector of state prices. If there exists a portfolio yielding 1 dollar in state e and 0 dollars otherwise, its price is equal to q(e). 2 assumes that the Arrow–Debreu security contingent on e can be replicated by a portfolio. In this case, q(e) is unique, of course, and can be interpreted as the price to be paid today to obtain 1 dollar in state e. Otherwise, this interpretation is false and, furthermore, q(e) is not uniquely determined.

And at the strike price determined two periods previously. Thus, 95 is the strike price that will prevail if it is exercised at time 2. 4. The calculation of the option value proceeds in several steps, starting from the end of the tree. The retention value of the option at a given date is defined as the value yielded by the option if it is not exercised immediately. Step 1: We start at t = 2 in one of the three possible states. Assuming that we keep the option, it can only be exercised at t = 4 and at a known strike price.
