# Question: consider the following discrete time oneperiod market model the savings...

###### Question details
1. Consider the following discrete time one-period market model. The savings account is $1 at time 0 and$β at time 1. The stock price is given by S0 =1 and S1 = ξ where ξ is a random variable taking two possible values u and d, each with positive probability. Moreover, assume that 0 < d < β < u.

1. (a)  Define what is meant by an equivalent martingale measure (EMM). Find, with proof, the EMM of this model. Does this model have arbitrage opportunities?

2. (b)  Consider a contract which pays D1 = 1/S1 at time 1. Prove that the time 0 price of this contract is given by

D0= (u+dβ)/udβ

3. (c)  Find the replicating portfolio for this contract.
