Theorem 20 (Bensoussan [1984], Karatzas [1988]). Consider an Americanstyle contingent claim ). For all t ∈ [0, τ0] the value of the claim, Vt(f, Y), is uniquely given by . 5) can also be written relative to the Q-measure as Thus, the theorem formalizes the intuitive notion that the value of an American contingent claim ought to equal the highest value that can be achieved by selecting exercise policies in the feasible set. 5). The value of the claim is the value of this replicating policy. 5) also demonstrates that the same pricing principles, as in the case of European claims or claims with exogenously specified random maturity, apply.

5). 6). 2. In order to describe claims with random timing of payments we need to introduce a few additional concepts. A random time τ is a stopping time of the (Brownian) filtration F( ) if the event {τ ≤ t} belongs to the σ-field Ft for every t ∈ [0, T]. In other words τ is a stopping time if, at any time t, an individual observing the underlying source of uncertainty (thus endowed with the σ-algebra Ft) 37 © 2006 by Taylor & Francis Group, LLC 38 CHAPTER 3. AMERICAN CONTINGENT CLAIMS can tell whether τ has occurred or not.
