A Characterization of Complete Security Markets On A Brownian Filtration1


  • Robert A. Jarrow
  • Dilip B. Madan


This paper provides a characterization theorem for a complete securities market when security prices follow Itô processes on a multidimensional Brownian filtration. This characterization theorem is a special case of Harrison and Pliska (1983), and it clarifies a counterexample provided by Müller (1989).
