Calculation of the protection leg of the CDS.

e would like to calculate the expression MATH We proceed similarly to the previous section. We calculate the drift MATH Hence, MATH We conclude that MATH Following logic of the previous section we will be seeking for a function $V_{t}$ of the form MATH for some deterministic functions MATH having the property MATH We have MATH We introduce notation MATH with

MATH then MATH Hence we calculate the drift part as MATH MATH MATH MATH We want the above expression to be MATH Hence, it suffices to have MATH where we made an assertion that $\alpha$ and $\beta$ are the same as in the previous section and $a$ and $b$ are given by the same expressions MATH Consequently, MATH We separate the coordinates MATH We substitute the expressions for the $g,h,q$ . The equations for $\alpha,~\beta$ have been calculated before. The equations for $\gamma,\delta$ resolve to MATH
