We can make a further generalization of the generalized Wiener process where the parameters a and b are functions, instead of constant parameters, of the underlying variables x and t. Algebraically, an Itoˆ process can be written as: dx ¼ aðx; tÞdt þ bðx; tÞdz We will model the stock price S as an Itoˆ process and we take aðS; tÞ ¼ μS en bðS; tÞ ¼ σS.
