for MRM

 Modeling and Pricing of VarSw and VolSw by CTM
Change of Time: Definition and Examples
 Change of Time-change time from t to a nonnegative process with non-decreasing sample
 Example1 (Subordinator): X(t) and T(t)>0 are
some processes, then X(T(t)) is subordinated to
X(t); T(t) is change of time
 Example 2 (Time-Changed Brownian Motion):
M(t)=B(T(t)), B(t)-Brownian motion
 Example 3 (Standard Stochastic Volatility
Model (SVM) ): M(t)=\int_0^t\sigma(s)dB(s),
Interpretation of CT. I.
 If M(t) is fair game process (another
 Then M(t)=B(T(t)) (Dambis-DubinsSchwartz Theorem)
 Time-change is the quadratic variation
process [M(t)]
 Then M(t) can be written as a SVM
process (martingale representation
theorem, Doob (1953))
Interpretation of CT. II.
 This implies that time-changed BMs are
canonical in continuous sample path
price processes and SVMs are special
cases of this class
 A consequence of the fact that for
continuous sample path time changed BM,
[M(t)]=T(t) is that in the SVM case
Change of Time: Short History. I.
 Bochner (1949) (‘Diffusion Equation and Stochastic
Process’, Proc. N.A.S. USA, v. 35)-introduced the notion
of change of time (CT) (time-changed Brownian motion)
 Bochner (1955) (‘Harmonic Analysis and the Theory of
Probability’, UCLA Press, 176)-further development of
 Feller (1966) (‘An Introduction to Probability Theory’, vol.
II, NY: Wiley)-introduced subordinated processes X(T(t))
with Markov process X(t) and T(t) as a process with
independent increments (i.e., Poisson process); T(t) was
called randomized operational time
Change of Time: Short History. II.
 Clark (1973) (‘A Subordinated Stochastic Process Model
with Fixed Variance for Speculative Prices’,
Econometrica, 41, 135-156)-introduced Bochner’s
(1949) time-changed Brownian motion into financial
economics: he wrote down a model for the log-price M
as M(t)=B(T(t)), where B(t) is Brownian motion, T(t) is
time-change (B and T are independent)
 Johnson (1979) (‘Option Pricing When the Variance
Rate is Changing’, working paper, UCLA)-introduced
time-changed SVM in continuous time
 Johnson & Shanno (1987) (‘Option Pricing When the
Variance is Changing’, J. of Finan. & Quantit. Analysis,
22, 143-151)-studied the pricing of options using timechanging SVM
Change of Time: Short History. III.
 Ikeda & Watanabe (1981) (‘SDEs and
Diffusion Processes’, North-Holland Publ.
Co)-introduced and studied CTM for the
solution of SDEs
 Carr, Geman, Madan & Yor (2003) (‘SV for
Levy Processes’, mathematical Finance,
vol.13)-used subordinated processes to
construct SV for Levy Processes (T(t)business time)
Time-Changed Models and SVMs
 The probability literature has demonstrated
that SVMs and their time-changed BM
relatives and time-changed models are
