Useful calculation.

he previous section hints that we are going to work with ratios of stochastic processes. We will repeatedly perform the ( Ito_formula )-based evaluation of MATH and MATH MATH MATH Hence,

MATH (Useful formula)
Suppose the stochastic processes $X_{t}$ and $Y_{t}$ are given by the SDEs MATH MATH where the $\sigma$ and $dW$ are columns. In terms of the SDE's coefficients we obtain MATH Note, if $dW_{t}$ is a Brownian motion in a $Y_{t}$ -numeraire measure then the above drift is zero and MATH It is informative to compare the last relationship with the ( Market prices of risk ).
