This paper has two purposes. The first is to extend the notions of an n-dimensional semimartingale and its stochastic integral to a piecewise semimartingale of stochastic dimension. The properties of the former carry over largely intact to the latter, avoiding some of the pitfalls of infinite-dimensional stochastic integration. The second purpose is to extend two fundamental theorems of asset pricing (FTAPs): the equivalence of no free lunch with vanishing risk to the existence of an equivalent sigma-martingale measure for the price process, and the equivalence of no arbitrage of the first kind to the existence of an equivalent local martingale deflator for the set of nonnegative wealth processes.

    An incomplete financial market model is considered, where the dynamics of the assets price is described by an R[sup d]-valued continuous semimartingale. We express the density of the minimal entropy martingale measure in terms of the value process of the related optimization problem and show...

    Assuming that the forward rates ftu are semimartingales, we give conditions on their components under which the discounted bond prices are martingales. To achieve this, we give sufficient conditions for the integrated processes ftu = f0u ftv dv to be semimartingales, and identify their various...

    Summary. We introduce a new core concept, called the two-stage core, which is appropriate for economies with sequential trade. We prove a general existence theorem and present two applications of the two-stage core: (i) In asset markets economies where we extend our existence proof to the case...

    We consider the problem of maximizing terminal utility in a model where asset prices are driven by Wiener processes, but where the various rates of returns are allowed to be arbitrary semimartingales. The only information available to the investor is the one generated by the asset prices and, in...
