It says that, at each time t, the market value of the “old” portfolio (xt , yt ) (which was created at t − 1) equals the purchase value of the new portfolio (xt+1 , yt+1 ), which is formed at t (and held until t + 1). We can now define the multiperiod version of an arbitrage possibility. 15 An arbitrage possibility is a self-financing portfolio h with the properties V0h = 0, P VTh ≥ 0 = 1, P VTh > 0 > 0. THE MULTIPERIOD MODEL 17 We immediately have the following necessary condition for absence of arbitrage.

The above definition is only intended to have an intuitive content, since a precise definition would take us into the realm of abstract measure theory (see Appendix B for details). Nevertheless it is usually extremely simple to use the definition, and we now give some fairly typical examples. 1. 14, for all s ≤ 9} then we have A ∈ F9X . X . Note, however, that we 2. For the event A = {X(10) > 8} we have A ∈ F10 X do not have A ∈ F9 , since it is impossible to decide if A has occurred or not on the basis of having observed the X-trajectory only over the interval [0, 9].

5. The reason for changing from the nominal prices to relative prices is simply that the relative price system is so much easier to analyze. If we obtain a number of results for the relative price system we can then easily translate these results back to the nominal system. To make this translation between the two price systems, we note that a given portfolio h can ABSENCE OF ARBITRAGE 29 be viewed as a portfolio in the S system and as a portfolio in the Z system. It will thus generate two different (but equivalent) value processes: The S value process, defined by Vth = hSt , and the Z value process, defined by Vth,Z = hZt .
