Hedging Diffusion Processes by Local Risk-Minimisation with Applications to Index Tracking
AbstractThe solution to the problem of hedging contingent claims by local risk-minimisation has been considered in detail in Follmer and Sondermann (1986), Follmer and Schweizer (1991) and Schweizer (1991). However, given a stochastic process Xt and tau1
