The continuous-time economy in which Black and Scholes derived a closed-form solution for a European call option on a non-dividend paying stock is mainly characterized by a Brownian motion {W(t), 0 ≤ t ≤ T} defined on a filtered probability described at the beginning of this section.

8 Because 9 Because 10 Brennan (1979) showed that under the assumption of a bivariate lognormal distribution of the price of the underlying asset and aggregate wealth, a sufficient condition to obtain the Black-Scholes formula is the utility function to exhibit constant proportional risk aversion. Duan (1990) extended this valuation technique in the case of Garch(p, q) distributed lognormal returns. 11 See Gihman and Skorohod (1972, p. 40). 12 For the details of Girsanov’s Theorem, see Elliott (1982).

As maturity decreases, the volatility decreases and becomes zero in the end. However, the drift term of the Schaefer and Schwartz bond price process is assumed to be constant, ignoring thereby the above-mentioned price effect, by which bond prices are forced to equal their face value at the final maturity date. In addition, the short-term rate of interest is assumed to be constant, restricting the empirical applicability of their model to short-term options on long-term bonds. The model of Ball and Torous (1983) incorporates the “drift-to-face-value” effect by using the Brownian Bridge to model bond prices.
