Philosophical Lectures on Probability: Collected, edited, and annotated by Alberto Mura

Philosophical Lectures on chance includes the transcription of a chain of lectures held by way of Bruno de Finetti (one of the fathers of subjective Bayesianism) and picked up through the editor Alberto Mura on the Institute for complex arithmetic in Rome in 1979. The publication bargains a stay in-context outlook on de Finetti’s later philosophy of likelihood.

For 0 ≤ s < t the random variable Wt − Ws follows a Normal distribution N (0, t − s). The paths of a Brownian motion are continuous but very erratic. 1 Finally, the following scaling property holds: if W = {Wt , t ≥ 0} is a Brownian motion then for any c = 0, Wˆ = {Wˆ t = cWt/c2 , t ≥ 0} is also a Brownian motion. A Brownian motion can be easily simulated by discretizing time using a very small step t. The value of a Brownian motion at time points {n t, n = 1, 2, . } is obtained by sampling a series of Standard Normal N (0, 1) random numbers {νn , n = 1, 2, .

A CDS is a bilateral agreement where the protection buyer transfers the credit risk of a reference entity to the protection seller for a determined amount of time T . The buyer of this protection makes predetermined payments to the seller. The payments continue until the maturity date T of the contract, or until default occurs, whichever is earlier. In the case of default of the reference entity, the contract provides that the protection buyer pays to the protection seller a determined amount. 1 presents schematically the building blocks of a CDS contract.

In other words, ν(A) is the expected number of jumps per unit time, whose size belongs to A. +1 If σ 2 = 0 and −1 |x|ν(dx) < ∞, it follows from standard L´evy process theory (Bertoin 1996, Sato 1999, Kyprianou 2006) that the process is of ﬁnite variation. Moreover, there is a ﬁnite number of jumps in any ﬁnite interval and the process is said to be of ﬁnite activity. Because the Brownian motion is of inﬁnite variation, a L´evy process with a Brownian component is of inﬁnite variation. e. with no Brownian component (σ 2 = 0), is of inﬁnite variation if and only if +1 −1 |x|ν(dx) = ∞.
