The Multinomial Option Pricing Model and Its Brownian and Poisson Limits
AbstractThe Cox, Ross, and Rubinstein binomial model is generalized to the multinomial case. Limits are investigated and shown to yield the Blacks-Scholes formula in the case of continuous sample paths for formula in the case of complete market structures. In the discontinuous case a Merton-type formula is shown to result, provided jump probabilities are replaced by their corresponding Arrow-Debreu prices.
