Example text

If x 1 , x 2 , . . are random variates with a joint probability density function p(x 1 , x 2 , . ), and if there are an equal number of y variates y1 , y2 , . . that are functions of the x’s, then the joint probability density function of the y variates, p( y1 , y2 , . ), is given by the following expression: p( y1 , y2 , . )d y1 d y2 , . . = p(x 1 , x 2 , . 1) where Jx, y is the Jacobian determinant of the x’s with respect to the y’s. An important application of this result is the Box Muller transformation, see Box and Muller (1958), in which a p variate independent normal distribution N(0, I p ) is generated from a p variate uniform distribution U(0, 1).

1 INTRODUCTION Monte Carlo simulation and random number generation are techniques that are widely used in financial engineering as a means of assessing the level of exposure to risk. Typical applications include the pricing of financial derivatives and scenario generation in portfolio management. In fact many of the financial applications that use Monte Carlo simulation involve the evaluation of various stochastic integrals which are related to the probabilities of particular events occurring. In many cases however, the assumptions of constant volatility and a lognormal distribution for ST are quite restrictive.

1997). Here, Brownian bridge techniques are employed to reduce the effective dimension of the problem and thus provide greater pricing accuracy than if pseudo-random numbers were used. 3 GENERATION OF MULTIVARIATE DISTRIBUTIONS: INDEPENDENT VARIATES In this section, we show how to generate multivariate distributions which contain independent variates, that is, the variates have zero correlation. 1 Normal Distribution The most fundamental distribution is the univariate standard normal distribution, N(0, 1), with zero mean and unit variance.
